Tampa Bay is 14-5 in their last 19 Thursday games and 2-5 in their last 7 games against the AL West. The over is 10-5-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 17 road games. Texas is 6-1 in their last 7 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 Thursday games. The under is 4-0 in Texas’ last 4 Thursday games. Tampa Bay is 3-6 in these two teams last 9 head to head meetings.

This is a matchup between two pitchers that haven’t had the best seasons so far this year. Kluber has strung a few good starts together, but has been inconsistent this season. For the Rangers, Hearn is coming off of a quality start, but allowed 7 runs combined in his previous two starts across 8.2 innings pitched. I like the over in this game.
