  • Can the Tiger manage to not drop this game and actually hold onto a lead? The Tigers obviously played the Rangers on Wednesday, and they ended up blowing the game late. They gave up one run in the 9th and that was the difference as they were defeated. The offense wasn't awful, finishing with four runs and seven hits. The Tigers are averaging 4.95 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.21 runs per game. The offense is ranked 11th in the league, while the pitching is ranked 10th. Getting the start for the Tigers will be Kenta Maeda who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 6.00. In his last against the Twins, he went six innings giving up five hits and two runs. The Tigers will meet the Twins and Rays after this series. Can they try to manage something from this series?

  • I did expect a bit better of baseball from the Rangers that start this season, but I don’t have much to complain about about this ball club, especially recently! The Rangers have won two of the last three games, and they should have confidence heading into this game. In the last game against the Detroit Tigers, the Rangers scored five runs, and they ended up winning by a run. The Rangers are averaging 4.95 runs, while their pitching is giving up 4.21 runs per game. The offense is ranked 11th, while the pitching is ranked 10th. Adolis Garcia has scored four goals and added 17 assists. Getting the start for the Rangers will be Jack Leiter, who will be making his first start of the season. Can they keep the momentum going?

💎 TEXAS RANGERS ML -108 ( 1u )

  • I understand the line looks confusing specially with the Rangers at this good of a price. Rangers are also on the road too and we know Detroit loves to play afternoon home games! But if we really look at this, this has Rangers written all over it! The Rangers have won two of the last three games, and they are going to find a way to win again in this game. I truly don’t trust Maeda who sits with an ERA of 6.00, and he’s going to really struggle in this game. I can see The Rangers offense going off today and put Maeda in a hole early! Don't be shocked if we see The Rangers score at least six runs here. i’m not a huge fan a little but I do trust him in this spot and I think he is going to have a strong enough start for the Rangers to get the dub today!
