Rangers Betting Preview
Texas moved to 14-7 after taking two of three from Oakland. The Rangers crushed the Athletics in game two by fifteen, then followed it up with a three-run victory on Sunday, 5-2. The Texas offense is scoring 4.37 runs per game, while batting .260, with a .339 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.49 ERA, with a 1.20 WHIP. Marcus Semien has recorded multiple hits in four of the last six games, and he leads the Rangers in batting (.298), with 20 RBI. Adonis Garcia produced eight runs in the monster victory over Oakland, and he’s first on the team in RBI (28).
Nathan Eovaldi (2-2, 5.40 ERA, 24 Ks) will take the mound for Texas. The twelve-year veteran responded to a rough start against Kansas City by containing them in a rematch last week. Eovaldi delivered his first quality start of the season, going six innings and just two runs en route to his second winning decision of the season.
Reds Betting Preview
Cincinnati moved to 7-15 after being swept by Pittsburgh. The Reds concluded a long weekend in PA by being held scoreless and dropping a sixth straight game, 4-0. The Cincinnati offense is scoring 3.78 runs per game, while batting .235, with a .318 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.13 ERA, with a 1.55 WHIP. TJ Friedl leads the team in batting (.303), after recording a hit in nine of the last ten games. Jonathan India (.291) fell behind him after being held hitless Sunday, but he leads Cincy in hits (23) and runs (18).
Nick Lodolo (2-1, 4.98 ERA, 31 Ks) will take the mound for Cincinnati. The second-year pitcher will look to bounce back from a rough outing with Rays that saw him allow eight runs in 4 ⅔ innings pitched. Lodolo tossed 27 strikeouts in his first three starts, so he is due to respond at home.
Texas vs Cincinnati Trends
Texas is 13-8 against the spread this season, with a 14-6-1 over/under record. Cincinnati is 13-9 ATS this year, with a 11-11 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
The matchup on the mound makes this contest open so tight, because Texas has been in much better form than Cincinnati early on. Nick Lodolo is talented, but so is the Rangers’ lineup, and I like them overpowering the Reds pitching staff with their bats. There’s great value on Texas here, so roll with them Monday evening, and with Nathan Eovaldi liable to allow runs himself, double down with the Over for this matchup as well.
