Bet Under for Angels vs Rays in MLB Over/Under Pick Today

The Los Angeles Angels and Tampa Bay Rays will continue their second series of the regular season when they meet for the third of a four-game set Wednesday. After a couple of higher-scoring games that the teams split, game three should go in the opposite direction with some outstanding pitchers on the mound. Both teams will be trying to gain the upper hand, but MLB odds favor the Rays in what should be a lower-scoring game.

Angels vs Rays Game Information

  • Game: Angels (8-9) vs Rays (10-8)
  • Location: Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, FL
  • Day/Time: Wednesday, April 17, 6:50 p.m. ET
  • Angels vs Rays Live Stream: MLB.tv


The Los Angeles Angels will hope to even the season series with the Tampa Bay Rays when the two clash once more Wednesday at Tropicana Field. However, MLB betting lines favor Tampa Bay at home, with the BetUs sportsbook setting the total at 8 ½ runs .


  • The Rays have played in 18 games with a set over/under, and have combined with opponents to go over the total 11 times (11-7-0).
  • The Angels and their opponents have gone over the total this season in nine of their 17 opportunities.
  • Over their last 10 matchups (all had set totals), the Rays combined with their opponents to go over the total six times.
  • When it comes to hitting the over, the Angels and their opponents are 4-6-0 in their last 10 games with a total.


Angels vs Rays Over/Under Pick: Under 8 ½ Runs (-110)

The Angels and Rays have gone over the total in each of their first two games of the series, but Wednesday’s game should be a little lower scoring.

Both Los Angeles and Tampa Bay will be walking out a pair of strong pitchers in Reid Detmers and Zack Littell. Detmers has gotten off to a hot start for the Angels, going 3-0 while boasting a 1.04 ERA and 0.81 WHIP. He has allowed just two earned runs in 17 ⅓ innings and should be able to keep it up against the Rays. Littell has been nearly as strong with a 1-0 record, 1.17 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. He has also already faced LA this season, allowing one earned run in 4 ⅓ innings while he has given up just two runs in 15 ⅓ innings.

Furthermore, both teams’ offenses have been inconsistent and are in the bottom half of the MLB in batting average. The Angels and Rays are tied for 17th with a .239 batting average. With a pair of strong starters, those issues should continue and the game should be able to stay under.



Player Prop Pick: Taylor Ward Over 0.5 Runs and RBIs (-148)

Although the Angels’ offense has been somewhat up and down to start the season, Ward has been one of the more reliable ones to help them pick up a run. Ward leads LA with 20 RBIs and he has recorded at least one in each of his last five games.

Though he hasn’t been as consistent in scoring runs, he has at least one in three of his last five games. He has also been able to find success against Tampa Bay, earning six RBIs and two runs in five games. Doing so again should be one of the best MLB props bets for April 17.
