Texas is 6-2 in their last 8 games and 1-4 in their last 5 game one’s of a series. The over is 5-1 in Texas’ last 6 games. Seattle is 6-1 in their last 7 games and 0-4 in their last 4 Monday games. The over is 3-1-1 in Seattle’s last 5 Monday games. Texas is 15-37 in these two teams last 52 head to head meetings.
Seattle has started the season slower than I thought they would, but they have played better recently and will be at home for this game. Texas is starting Jon Gray, who has allowed 10 earned runs over his last 16.2 innings pitched. The Mariners are starting Logan Gilbert, who has allowed 10 earned runs over his last 17 innings of work. Seattle has really struggled to hit the ball consistently this season, so I am taking the Rangers on the road here.
