Rangers vs. Astros: Battle of Texas Online MLB Wagering Odds
Worst meets first in the MLB American League West as the Texas Rangers and Houston Astros open a three game weekend series at Minute Maid Park tonight. Though it’s not exactly the “Battle of The Alamo” the results will be similar as we see a Lone Star State sweep in the making. First pitch is scheduled for 8:10 PM EDT on Friday, May 10, 2013.

Texas Rangers: Riding tall in the American League West

Attempting to win their third American League Championship in four years, the Texas Rangers (21-13) stormed out of the gate with a 13-6 run to open the 2013 MLB season. Things haven’t been all peaches and cream for the Rangers recently though as Texas is just 5-6 in their last eleven contests. That said, the Rangers have opened up a four game lead over the second place Oakland Athletics in the AL West. This Arlington Crew is the seventh best hitting team in the Majors (.263 AVG) and their pitchers own the second best team ERA (3.22) in baseball.

Houston Astros: Enduring a rude welcome to the MLB Junior Circuit

One has to wonder if the Astros would rather be back in the National League Central Division as their welcome to the American League West has been anything but hospitable. Coming of a 2-1 series win over the Los Angeles Angels may bolster their spirits some but Houston, sitting at 10-25, still owns the worst record in the Majors. The ‘Stros are averaging 10.3 strikeouts per game and their pitching staff owns a league worst 5.60 team earned run average. We’ll saddle up and ride with the Rangers with the -210 ML at in this contest.
