3 units on Texas -170 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Texas was not treated very kindly in Tampa where they were swept in three straight games. This story should be different as the Rangers have been mopping up on the road vs. the cupcakes on their schedule. Texas comes into this one at 18-5 on the road vs. a team with a losing record on the season. Colby Lewis has been snakebitten as he has allowed 10 runs in his last five starts, all losses, but he continues to pitch great with a 3.28 ERA on the season. The Rangers are 9-3 with him on the mound facing a losing team. The Birds are just 8-16 with Matusz on the hill this season. Those losses include two vs. Texas where he was toasted for 11 runs in just 5.1 innings in the two games. I'll go with Texas here.
