Texas at Oakland
Wednesday 09/23 10:05 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Oakland +113 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.2) RESULT: LOSS
This is the second straight road game for Texas out west of a six-game trip against division rivals Oakland and Houston. The Rangers have been favored the last four games but went 2-2, losing 3-1 and 9-2. Rangers starter Colby Lewis (4.41 ERA) has lost each of his last two road outings, surrendering totals of 13 runs and 17 hits over 10+ innings. The Rangers are 4-11 when Lewis faces a team with a losing record. Oakland is 8-2 at home against a team with a winning record. Lefty Felix Doubront has been a good pick up, as he is 2-1 in eight games (six starts) since being acquired from Toronto. The Athletics are 5-1 in Doubront's last six starts, so grab the home dog and play on Oakland.
