Texas at Minnesota

3 units on Minnesota -1.5 runs +160 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3)  RESULT: WIN

The Rangers have feasted against RHP all season to the tune of 39-28, a full 11 games over the .500 mark. The offense has been slowed by LHP however, where they have been a not-so successful 11-18, or seven games below .500, and an even worse 4-10 on the road. One of the losses was to Perkins, the pitcher on the hill for the Twins tonight. Probably the most significant stat of all is the fact that in the 10 losses on the road, the Rangers lost all 10 games by two runs or more. The Rangers are all about offense and LHP has neutralized it, while their pitching has left a bit to be desired, including tonight's starter, Kevin Millwood who enters with an ERA of over five. The Twins should make that 11 by two runs or more.
