Texas at Oakland

1 unit on Texas +174 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.74) RESULT: WIN
Texas is a terrific road team (19-12) while Oakland has been abysmal at home (9-17). The Rangers just took two of three at Kansas City and posted their sixth consecutive series victory. Texas 1B Prince Fielder leads the majors with 26 multi-hit games and the team is 9-2 on the road. Texas has won 14 of 18 to move ahead two spots in the AL West, reducing a 9 1/2–game deficit to Houston down to 3 1/2. The Rangers are 11-2 in their last 13 games vs. a right-handed starter and face Oakland righty Sonny Gray. The Athletics are 1-4 when Gray gets five days of rest, plus the A's are on a 6-15 run at home, including 5-13 as home chalk. The Rangers have a strong arm going in Nick Martinez (4-2, 2.89 ERA), with the team 8-3 when he starts, so grab the very hot live dog and play on Texas.
