The big question bettors have to ask themselves before Tuesday’s tilt between the Rangers and Astros is if they take a flier on Texas for great ROI or just accept the “guarantee” in Houston despite the huge ML?
The reason the Rangers are +250 in this tilt is because Justin Verlander gets set to go for the Astros. Texas has just a .214 collective average against the Houston starter and in a lot of chances too with 341 team AB.
The Rangers might not be a horrible play on Tuesday considering they have won 6 of their last 10. Then again, Texas is on a 3 game losing streak after getting swept by Oakland after taking 2 of 3 from Tampa Bay.
Texas will go with Lance Lynn in this one which likely isn’t a good thing. The veteran right-hander is 0-4 in his last 7 starts and has a 3.00 ERA in 3 starts vs. the Astros this season.
Is anybody going to lay the -300 on Houston on Tuesday? The Astros took all 3 games in Kansas City over the weekend but have lost 3 straight in their last home games getting shut down by Oakland.
A wager on the Astros should probably be with the run line. The last time Houston won at home it was by 15 against Oakland and 20 vs. Seattle.
Believe it or not there’s still value on Houston with Verlander on the hill. He gave up 3 ER in his last start vs. Oakland, but also struck out 11 A’s batters. Prior to that the Cy Young candidate allowed just 1 ER in the three starts prior.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rangers are 4-0 last 4 road games
- Rangers are 0-7 in Lynn’s last 7 starts
- Astros are 48-17 last 65 home games
- Astros are 39-16 last 55 overall
- Astros are 5-2 in Verlander’s last 7 home starts
- Rangers are 0-7 last 7 in Houston
Free Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
The only value in this game is on the total, one that should be on the low side with Verlander on the bump.
