New York moved to 15-11 after defeating Texas. The Yankees picked up their second straight win, but they face an uphill with Jacob DeGrom today. The New York 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. Anthony Rizzo leads the Yanks in hitting (.290), after producing a pair of runs in the versus Minnesota. Aaron Judge is first on the team in RBI (14) after recording three in the series finale win over the Twins.

Clarke Schmidt (0-2, 6.30 ERA, 24 Ks) will make the start for New York. The second-year pitcher had his best start of the season versus Toronto last time out, tossing a season-high 5.2 innings, while fanning eight. 

Rangers Betting Preview

Texas fell to 14-11 after falling to New York. The Rangers were swept by Cincinnati, and they’ll now look to avoid a second straight series loss. 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 doubled in the series opener, and he leads the Rangers in batting (.287), with 22 RBI. Adonis Garcia produced eight runs in the monster victory over Oakland last week, and he’s first on the team in RBI (29). 

Jacob deGrom (2-0, 3.04 ERA, 43 Ks) will take the mound for Texas. The 2x Cy Young winner delivered another gem versus Oakland last week, striking out eleven in six full innings, while allowing just one run. DeGrom has cleared nine strikeouts in three of his last four starts. 

New York vs Texas Trends 

New York is 15-11 against the spread this season, with a 12-12-2 O/U record. Texas is 9-16 ATS this year, with a 12-12-1 over/under record.

Corey's Free Pick

Texas needs a win badly, and with their ace set to take the bump, there has to be a sense of urgency to end the skid now. Now while this is a lot of value for the Yankees, I like trusting Jacob DeGrom versus his former Subway Series foe. With the Rangers’ line a bit juiced here, take the manageable over as it comes with a push and these two lineups could be able to meet the low total.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
