Seattle at Texas

3 units on Texas -1.5 runs +128 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
No one expected the Rangers to go this deep into the season above .500 and hanging in wildcard contention. They have done it by simply outscoring teams, especially at home, and especially against RHP. The Rangers have struggled against southpaws, where they are just 11-22, but against the righties Texas has been 43-30. The Rangers have exploded for 159 runs in their last 23 home games or nearly seven a game. This is a Seattle team that is just 5-13 over their last 18 games. In their last 52 losses they have lost by two or more runs in 39 of them or 75% of the time. There is lots of value with the high-scoring Rangers on the runline.
