Philadelphia is 1-5 in their last 6 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 games against the AL West. The over is 5-1 in Philadelphia’s last 6 Sunday games. Texas is 12-27 in their last 38 games and 1-5 in their last 6 Sunday games. The over is 5-1 in Texas’ last 6 game three’s of a series.

The Rangers have started this season hitting the ball extremely well and they have scored 27 runs in the first two games. Philadelphia has also hit the ball well, but they really need their pitching to improve quickly. Texas will be starting Martin Perez, who had a very good season last year. Philadelphia is starting Bailey Falter, who did have an ERA under 4.00 last season. With the way this series has started, I can’t go against the Rangers here.
