The Rangers can’t buy a win right now for whatever reason, and offense has been hard to come by for Texas, scoring three runs or less in six of their last eight games. Houston had time off to heal up after Oakland tested positive for COVID, so there could be concern for rust with the Astros but I’ll take it as some much-needed rest. Framber Valdez goes for the ‘Stros on the mound and he’s simply been building more and more confidence after every start and I’d argue that he’s been the best (or at worst second best) in the Astros’ rotation and I think the Astros put the boots to Texas here. Give me Houston on the run line as my premium pick for this game.
