2 units on Texas -230 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
This may look like a big number to take down for the road team, but it simply is about as high as the books can go to deter action on Texas, but the value remains. The Rangers on the road have killed losing teams to the tune of a 19-6 record, so they get the money in this situation at a 76% clip - more than enough to cover the chalky line and leave value. That is with any pitcher, now you add in Cliff Lee who ranks No. 4 in the AL in ERA, and it becomes even more valuable. Add in the fact that Baltimore is 24-61 in their last 85 played vs. a winning team, and we have a play on Texas in this one.
