MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
The Texas Rangers will send Wes Benjamin to he hill this Friday, and he will have a mighty tough test competing with both this Astros lineup and Zack Greinke on the other side of things, so an interesting game awaits here, as this would be a pretty big upset if the Rangers can pick up this road win.
It has been an up and down season so far for the Rangers, and that in and of itself is a success, as a lot of fans and pundits had this team circled as one of the worst in the major leagues, so not many people thought they would only have two less losses then their Texas neighbors the Astros.
It has not just been one side of the ball who is carrying this team either, as they have got solid batting performances and nice starts from their rotation, so this team might just have more talent then we all thought.
One guy who has surprised is their right fielder Adolis Garcia who is absolutely hammering the ball early on hitting 9 home runs and 26 RBI to go along with a very respectable .293 average which has obviously gone a long way to helping this team pick up all these wins.
The issue for the Rangers here might be the starting pitcher, as they are going with Wes Benjamin here who has an 0-1 record and a 4.76 ERA and he gets a brutally tough spot here against an Astros batting lineup who is humming at the moment.
The Astros are 5-2 in their last 7 games and really looked primed to take down the AL West after shaking off a pretty awful start to the season, as this team is absolutely stacked on both sides of the ball with the scariest thing about this team being the fact they are not yet fully healthy.
This team is already a contender for the World Series this year, but you wonder how scary they are going to become when they have their ace Justin Verlander back who says he has been throwing and is starting to feel good.
One guy this Astros team needs to be very happy with is Yordan Alvarez who is hitting .347 and has 7 home runs after dealing with plenty of injury problems in recent times, so it is great for him and the Astros that he is finally out there crushing the ball.
This Astros team will go with Zack Greinke here who has not been fantastic in recent times and he now holds an ERA over 4, but I would expect that to improve here, as although the Rangers batting lineup has been pretty good at the start of the season I still see this as a + matchup for the Astros starter.
Free Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The Astros at home against the Rangers with Zack Greinke on the hill looks like a blow out waiting to happen and I think that is what happens here and although the Astros are big favorites here I still like them quite a bit on the runline, as I can see them putting up plenty of runs against both this Rangers bullpen and starter Wes Benjamin.
