Texas at Toronto
Thursday 09/09 07:05 PM Eastern
2 units on Toronto +1.5 runs -160 (runline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The Texas Rangers have to be feeling really fortunate to be in the AL West. There is not another team cracking the .500 mark, and the Rangers have been doing a free fall. The Rangers are just 15-23 since early August, and just 5-13 on the road and 4 of the 5 wins have come in Kansas City and Baltimore. They would be just 27-43 facing a -1.5 runline on the road. The Blue Jays have been good at home, but even better vs. the runline. The Jays stand at 50-18 at home if getting +1.5. The Rangers’ road woes vs. a winning home team show them at just 9-24, and 3-13 in their last 16. They have struggled in Lewis' last nine starts winning just once. The Blue Jays stand in at 30-13 at home vs. teams with a losing road record in their last 43, and the Rangers always struggle in Toronto winning just 1 of the last 8 here. I'll go with Toronto on the runline.
