The Angels are desperate for a win in this series and are perfect this season in tonight’s situation.

Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers

Los Angeles has dropped the first two games of a crucial four-game set in Arlington, failing to score a single run in a 1-0 defeat on Friday night to the Texas Rangers.  “I made one mistake in the first inning and it kind of cost us,” starting pitcher Joe Saunders said.  Since opening the break with a 3-0 mark, the club has dropped three straight and four of five.  “We’re still a little unsettled in a couple of areas on the offensive end,” manager Mike Scioscia said.  After plating 16 runs on 29 hits in two games versus New York, the Halos have been held to just two runs and batting .145 in the first two games of this series.  Los Angeles now trails Texas in the 2010 series 2-5, as six of the seven meetings this season have been one-run affairs.  The Angels are 3-6 after three or more consecutive losses this season (-310) and 12-8 in this situation the last three years (+320)

Texas Rangers at Detroit Tigers

Texas had lost 11 of its last 14 games before this important series against the Boston Red Sox, including four straight to the Baltimore Orioles.  The Rangers ended up taking three of four at Fenway Park with Sunday’s 4-2 victory.  “We played well and we pitched well,” third baseman Michael Young said.  The last few games, we’ve pitched especially well.”  It doesn’t get any easier to start the week for the Rangers, heading to a place where they’ve lost 11 straight games.  “It’s good to come back and take three of four here because we know our recent history in Detroit isn’t that good.”

There are some pitchers out there who are consistently good at going under the posted total, and others who have never met a total that they can’t go over. Some of that is related to their ERA and the way they are pitching – bad pitcher are going to allow a lot of runs and make t easier to go over, while great pitchers are stingy with runs and go deep in games, and it is hard to go over. There is more to it than just that, though. The pitchers have a big impact on the total that the oddsmakers set, so it only makes sense that both the performance and the public perception of those pitchers factors heavily into the line as it is set. A pitcher that performs at a higher level than the public perceives him to, then, could be a useful pitcher to play on the over/under. Here’s a look at 10 guys who have been particularly useful against the total so far this year:
