The Texas Rangers and the Philadelphia Phillies will play game two of their three-game set in Austin from Globe Life Field on FOX. The Phillies struck first, but a monster fourth-inning from the Rangers would power them to a 11-7 win.

Phillies Betting Preview

Philadelphia comes in at 0-1 after dropping their season opener to the Rangers. Despite the final result, the Phillies displayed early signs of consistency with runs in four straight innings, and could hope back into the win column this weekend with an advantage on the mound.

Zack Wheeler will make the start for Philly. The tenth-year pitcher has grown into one of the more consistent hurlers in the league after putting together another strong season in 2022 with a 12-7 record, a 2.82 ERA, and 163 strikeouts. Wheeler tossed 15 strikeouts with a 1.50 ERA in two starts versus Texas last season.

Rangers Betting Preview

Texas is 1-0 after downing the Phillies in game one. The Rangers had their way at the plate, with nearly every batter recording a hit, four players with two RBI or more in the 11-run outing. Newcomer Robbie Grossman led the way with three runs batted in during the opener.

Nathan Eovaldi will get the call for Texas here. The eleventh-year pitcher wrapped up a solid five-year stint in Boston last Fall, posting a 6-3 record, with a 3.87 ERA, and 103 strikeouts. Eovaldi was noticeably a better pitcher away from home last season, going 2-3 with 5.26 ERA as host while posting a 4-0 visiting record with a 2.64 ERA.

Philadelphia vs Texas Trends

Philadelphia is 0-1 against the spread, with a 1-0 over/under record. Texas went 1-0 ATS, with a 1-0 O/U record. 

Corey's Free Pick

Zach Wheeler was quietly one of the best pitchers in baseball last season, and I feel like he restores some order on the mound. If Wheeler comes out and deals, the Phillies have the lineup to overwhelm Nathan Eovaldi in his debut. I like Philadelphia winning this one straight up, but I like the over in more, as it provides more security with two talented lineups set to face off.
