MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Texas Rangers will look to build off of the momentum they gained in their first game of this series when they take on the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field this Thursday evening.
The Rangers looked great in their first game of this series winning that game by a 7-3 scoreline, as Nathaniel Lowe playing hero going 5 for 5 with 3 RBI in one of the best performances of his career.
This batting lineup has not been very consistent this year, but when they are on they are able to really contend with a lot of teams with sluggers like Adolis Garcia who really has been a nice find for this team.
One thing that has been impressive about this team has been the starting pitching staff who have delivered 42 quality starts on the season and Jordan Lyles will look to put up another one of those this Thursday against the Indians.
Jordan Lyles has not been bad this year with a 5.23 ERA, but this Cleveland Indians batting lineup is looking pretty scary and he will need to show up with his best stuff in order to get a positive result.
The Cleveland Indians will try and make a late run for a wild card spot and given their current roster they really should be able to beat up on a team like the Texas Rangers, but they were unable to do so during the first game of this series.
The Indians did get some bad new recently, though, as Triston McKenzie hits the injured list off the back of two really great starts and he looked to be the exact guy they needed in this starting rotation and he will be hard to replace going forward.
Sam Hentges will head to the hill here coming into this game with a brutal 7.52 ERA and a 1-4 record, so he will certainly be looking to improve upon those statistics here in this matchup.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
I do think this Cleveland Indians team is going to go on a bit of a run towards the end of the season and I think that run could start here against Texas. I am a bit worried about Hentges being on the mound here, but I firmly believe this Indians offense will be able to keep pace and even cover on the runline here to get these odds closer to the even money mark.
