2 units on Game Total UNDER 9 +100 (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: win
The Rangers were 16-6 this season with Tommy Hunter on the mound, including 9-2 at home where he posted a 3.09 ERA. Over his last three starts, he's allowed just 15 hits and four runs, posting a 2.20 ERA. Over the past two seasons, he's 18-4 as a favorite of -110 or higher. And, with the total in the 9 to 9.5 range, he's 16-5 the past two seasons. I like the Rangers here. I also like the UNDER. Tampa Bay has averaged just 2.3 runs per game over their past seven. When facing AL opponents with an OBP of .330 or worse this season, Texas is 55-41 UNDER. In day games, the Rays are 57-37 UNDER. I like the Rangers in a low-scoring game here.
