MLB Expert Picks Today: Bet The Red-Hot Rangers

I'm off for the rest of the week, so this is my last shot to cash some baseball bets with my MLB expert picks for Wednesday's slate.

After a 1-0 record (and a rainout) on Tuesday, I'm eyeing up the red-hot Rangers and fading the awful White Sox. Here are my two MLB expert picks for today:

MLB Expert Pick Today: Rangers (-142) vs Angels

Rangers vs Angels Odds - Game Time: 9:39 pm ET

The Rangers just became baseball's hottest team. They've won five-straight games with a +21 run differential and 3.75 units of profit in that stretch.

Now they face off against an Angels starter who's been basically batting practice in the past. Griffin Canning has a 4.87 ERA on the season, allowing at least four runs in four of his last five games. The Angels have won just two of Canning's last seven starts and three of 12 decisions this year. The Rangers also rock Canning, historically, with a team OPS of .870 against the LA starter.

Robbie Grossman, in particular, owns Canning. The Texas outfielder has a .529 career average and 1.286 OPS off the Angels starter 14 career at-bats. You can bet on Grossman to get a hit tonight at -145.

MLB Expert Pick Today: Twins (-164) vs White Sox

Twins vs White Sox Odds - Game Time: 2:11 pm ET

I actually picked the Twins and Bailey Ober against the White Sox yesterday, but the game was rained out. So, why waste that handicapping? Let's use the pick again today — with a slight twist.

Ober has allowed just four total earned runs across his last four starts (27.1 IP). He's struck out 35 batters to just five walks in that stretch, too. The Twins have won four of Ober's last five starts and he's dropped his season ERA a full point in that run. That's great.

Now, the big Minnesota pitcher has a chance to stay hot. Ober faces a White Sox lineup that sucks in general and sucks against him, too. Ober has held current White Sox batters to a .247 career average and .652 OPS in 97 at-bats. Chicago batters also have a .221 average and .634 OPS in general this season, good for second-worst in baseball on both marks.

While I was on the runline yesterday, with Chicago's Erick Fedde on the bump today, I'm not quite as keen on the -1.5. The White Sox are baseball's worst moneyline team, so I'll just take the Twins outright to be safe.
