2 units on Texas -122 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2)  RESULT: LOSS

The Rangers’ Matt Harrison had a 9.20 ERA after his first three big-league starts and it sure didn't look like he was gonna last. Harrison has really come on since as he has pitched to a 3.55 ERA since with the Rangers going 4-1. Fausto Carmona had a breakout season a year ago winning 19 games for the Indians. A hip injury kept him on the sidelines most of this season. Carmona’s return however, has seen him struggle with location and control, much the same as he did prior to last year. The result has been an unimpressive 8.20 ERA in these five starts. This line reflects the Indians team of a year ago, along with Carmona of a year ago, and neither has been present this season, so we will ride the Rangers here.
