MLB Pick: Al McMordie wagering on the Rangers -119 over the Royals on April 22nd 2017

Kansas City Royals vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Betting Pick: Texas -119 odds (April 22nd 2017)

At 8:05 pm, our complimentary selection is on the Texas Rangers over the Kansas City Royals.  The only thing keeping the Texas Rangers from being dubbed the most under-performing team in the American League is the play so far of the Toronto Blue Jays.  After the first 17 games of the 2017 season, the Rangers – a club many thought would be on top in the AL West – find themselves tied for last place with a 7-10 record.  This despite an offense that has plated more runs – 79 – than all but two teams in the league.  That can only mean one thing – that the pitching hasn’t been up to snuff, and that’s exactly what’s happening so far.  The Rangers starters actually have been pretty good (3.46), but their bullpen – well that’s another story.  Texas’ relievers have the fourth-worst ERA in the league at 5.13.  One of the clubs that’s worse than that?  How about tonight’s opponent, the Royals, with a bullpen ERA of 5.32.  Tonight, we’ll back the Rangers behind Nick Martinez vs. Ian Kennedy and the Royals.  Good luck, as always…Al McMordie.  And don’t miss my NBA and NHL Games of the Month on this Saturday.  Overall, we have 5 plays on Saturday, so join for a week or month to get all of my award-winning plays!

Royals vs. Rangers Odds: Matt Fargo betting Texas +107 on April 20th 2017

Kansas City Royals vs. Texas Rangers
MLB Betting Pick: Texas +107 odds (April 20th 2017)

Kansas City won last night to split its two-game set with the Giants as it got another strong effort from starter Jason Vargas. The Royals went 5-3 on their homestand but they are just 2-4 on the road and come in here as the slight favorite because of the starting pitching matchup. Texas has lost two straight and five of its last six games to fall to 5-10 on the season and that record is also being taken into consideration with the line. The recent struggles have come on the road and the Rangers have won two of their last three at home and going back, they are 4-1 in their last five home games following a road trip of seven or more days. Danny Duffy gets the ball for Kansas City and he is off to a solid start with three quality outings in his three starts but this is not the ballpark to keep strong pitching numbers going. For Duffy, he has an 8.38 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in two career starts at Globe Life Park in Arlington. The Rangers counter with Andrew Cashner who is in his first season with Texas and his first start was not great but it was not awful either as he allowed three earned runs in 5.1 innings at Seattle so he was two outs away from a quality outing. While this is his first season at Globe Life Park in Arlington, he has been known for a pitcher that pitches exceptional at home as his career ERA is over two runs less than it is on the road and most of those took place at hitter friendly Chase Field in Arizona. Play (916) Texas Rangers

Rangers vs. Angels Betting Odds & Pick from Brandon Shively: April 13th 2017

Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Texas -131 odds (April 13th 2017)

The Texas Rangers are underpriced on Thursday afternoon in Anaheim. Yu Darvish over Ricky Nolasco is a massive starting pitching mismatch. Nolasco is at the very best an average pitcher in the majors. Yu Darvish has some of the best stuff in the majors, and if he can stay healthy I expect a great season out of him.

Texas has certainly had their fair share of bullpen blowups this year, and those have been highly publicized. I believe those have given us some extra value here. Remember, the Angels don’t have a good bullpen at all either. In fact, I’m not convinced it is better than the Texas bullpen.

The Angels have pulled out a lot of magic in the early going this year, but they aren’t going to consistently win games where they dig a deep hole. The Rangers clearly have the deeper lineup. Texas is much more dangerous now that Joey Gallo is providing the team with consistent power near the bottom of the order.

The Rangers are 7-1 in Darvish’s last 8 starts vs. the Angels. This is a fair price to lay with the much better pitcher and the better lineup.

Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Pick from Dave Price: April 11th 2017

Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Rangers +106 odds (April 11th 2017)

I like the price we are getting with the Texas Rangers today with ace Cole Hamels on the mound.  Hamels has been the model of consistency throughout his big league career.  He has also owned the Los Angeles Angels, going 2-1 with a 3.27 ERA and 1.121 WHIP in 5 lifetime starts against them.  Tyler Scaggs gave up 5 earned runs in 5 1/3 innings at Oakland in his first start this season.  Skaggs sports a 5.49 ERA and 1.576 WHIP in 4 lifetime starts versus Texas.  The Rangers are 16-3 in Hamels’ last 19 starts vs. American League West opponents.  Texas is 35-11 in Hamels’ last 46 starts overall.  The Angels are 2-8 in Skaggs’ last 10 starts.  Take Texas.
