Friday night’s tilt between the Rangers and A’s being a virtual toss up (TEX -105, OAK -110) seems a bit off considering the fact that Texas is slumping hard right now. Chris Woodward’s team just dropped 2 of 3 to Seattle and Friday night’s game will be their 8th straight on the road. Oakland was a -182 favorite ahead of Thursday night’s series opener so why such the discrepancy?
The Rangers are 6th in the majors in runs/scored but they have been held to 3 runs or less in 5 of the last 6. Texas sends veteran Lance Lynn to the hill on Friday and the team has played well behind the right-hander. The Rangers have been victorious in 5 of the last 7 when Lynn starts. The losses came in the last two though and Lynn has been awful, allowing 9ER over 13 IP in his last two.
Oakland returns home after a rough series in Houston where they lost 2 of 3 and were outscored 7-18. The away swing wasn’t all for naught though as the A’s split a 4-game series at Target Field prior to that with first place Minnesota. Oakland has been held to 2 runs or less in 2 of the last 3, but are an impressive 31-20 at home on the year.
Daniel Mengden will make his first start vs. Texas on the season. He’s posted a solid W/L record as of late going 4-0 in his last 5 starts, but he has allowed 4+ runs in 2 of the last 4. Mengden has an ERA of 4.10 at home on the year (5.25 away).
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rangers are 1-5 last 6 road games
- Rangers are 1-9 last 10 overall
- Rangers are 5-2 in Lynn’s last 7 starts
- A’s are 6-1 in Mengden’s last 7 starts
- A’s are 63-31 last 94 home games
- Rangers are 11-27 last 38 H2H meetings
Free Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Regardless of how Thursday night’s tilt turns out there’s no reason not to back the A’s in this one. The value is great, and Texas has lost 9 of their last 10 heading into the series opener.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Oakland -110
Possibly a trap game but the A’s have much more to play for as they try to erase a 7.5 game deficit in the West.
