The Texas Rangers are somewhat of a disappointment to start the season. The teams currently sits nine games under .500 through the first 39 games of the year. If the Rangers are unable to find a grove, things could get ugly in Arlington.
Aside from the slow start, the Rangers will start, Cole Hamels (1-4, 3.94 ERA) against the Astros. Hamels has faced the Astros twice this year. He is 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA. The Astros lineup is averaging .250 against him over those starts.
The Houston Astros are glad to be back home. The Astros recently swept the Oakland Athletics on their west coast swing. Houston is 10-9 at home, and the team would love to improve their record at Minute Maid Park.
The Astros will be extra excited for this matchup. They will send Ace, Justin Verlander (4-1. 1.17 ERA) to the mound. Verlander has faced the Rangers twice this year. Verlander is 1-0 with a 0.64 ERA against the Rangers this year.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The Texas Rangers are no match for the Astros this season. Especially, at Minute Maid Park with Verlander on the mound. Look for the Houston bats to get going early and often against Hamels. Take the Astros for the win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER 7.5
I expect the Rangers to struggle for the third time against Verlander this season. Look for Cole Hamels to give up majority of the runs in this game. Don’t Expect Verlander to give up many. Take the under in this game.
