Money Line: -143 Texas
5* Monday Night Baseball Game of the Year (ESPN) on Rangers -143
Plain and simple, LA's Santana cannot be trusted here. He has an ERA of 16.00 over his last 3 starts and has given up 5 runs or more in 6 of his last 9 starts. The Angels 0-5 in his last 5 starts with those losses coming by an average of 4.4 runs. The Angels are also 0-5 in Santana's last 5 road starts versus a team with a winning record. It is also worth noting that he has allowed at least 4 runs in each of his last 6 starts versus the Rangers.
Oswalt should be feeling good having not pitched since July 17th. He has been brilliant in his last 2 starts, holding the Twins and the A's to one run each. The Rangers are 4-0 this season in Oswalt's starts as a favorite. Take Texas.
