This does not seem like a juggernaut team like the Cubs but the Rangers finished with the top record in the American League and didn’t really have to sweat it down the stretch.
It will have all been for not though if they don’t take command of the series with a game one win at home.
They have been on the verge for a while. Maybe this year they break through.
This game has offensive explosions written all over it.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Jays won a Wild Card thriller against Baltimore to advance on Tuesday night.
The big bats came through with a home run by Jose Bautista to kick off the scoring and a game winner by Edwin Encarnacion in the 11th inning.
I know there is a lot of talk about why the O’s didn’t use Zach Britton but give the Jays some credit for winning it.
Nice team effort.
Marco Estrada did not have a great regular season but when he is on with his change up he can baffle any lineup. In his last three starts he gave up just 2ER and was 6-2 on the road this season.
He was 1-1 against Texas during the regular season and was very good throughout last year’s playoffs. He also is on proper rest which is why he gets the nod here.
Closer Roberto Osuna left the Wild Card game unexpectedly but there is only limited concern at the moment.
The Rangers closed the season with a couple of meaningless losses to Tampa and are looking to advance in this year’s playoffs after last year’s fabulously entertaining exit against Toronto.
They won the AL and even though I am not quit sure how they did it, Rougned Odor’s 33 homers must have helped.
Yes I definitely think this is a team that despite their success we really do not know a ton about. They are definitely a team thought wit
The Rangers fancy themselves as having two aces in Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish.
They are wise to go with Hamels in game one as the lefty has some serious playoff bonafides including two good starts against Toronto in last year’s ALDS.
Lefties are not a great option against Toronto but you don’t want to get too cute with this stuff.
Though Texas has a great record in 1 run games the bullpen is hardly a strength with a 4.40 ERA. They are second worst in K rate and near the bottom in a host of other metrics too.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
Recent history has shown that playing in the Wild Card game is not a hindrance to success. The Jays win gives them a lot of momentum and given the history between these two clubs, adds even more fuel to the fire.
Thankfully the baseball gods have smiled on us to give is this series.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto +130
In addition to getting the win it is great for the Jays that their big bats contributed. Look for Josh Donaldson to join the hero club in this one. Tulo also hit him well from his days back in the National League.
Looking for the Jays to get on top early and cruise to a relatively comfortable win.
