2 units on Game Total UNDER 9 +100 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Texas Rangers have to be feeling good after taking two of three from New York at the Stadium, and come home needing just one win to secure a shot in the World Series. Colby Lewis gets the ball for the Rangers in game six, and he has been pitching his best over his last seven starts. Lewis has not allowed more than 2 runs in any of them. The Yankees counter with Phil Hughes who had a hiccup in his first outing in this series allowing 7 runs, but prior to that Hughes has been right on his game, allowing just 1 run in his previous two starts. More importantly, this is an "all-in" game for the Yankees. If they can get six innings out of Hughes, it will be Kerry Wood for the seventh and Mariano for the eighth and ninth, limiting scoring opportunities. The Rangers are 19-6-2 to the UNDER in Lewis' last 13 starts when their opponent scored 5+ in the last game, as well as 9-3-1 UNDER to a total of 9-10.5. I will ride with the UNDER in this one.
