I’d like to give the Rangers a look with the sizeable plus money, but the fact is that the Rangers are a putrid 4-17 on the road this season and are starting Kyle Gibson with the Rangers losing his last five starts and eight of his nine starts this season with seven of those losses coming by at least two runs. Gibson’s also allowed five or more runs in four of his last five starts. Not to mention the Rangers have struggled against the Astros, losing 14 of the last 17 overall and losing 12 of the last 13 meetings in Houston. Lance McCullers Jr. has been dealing with a nagging injury, but I think the Astros are good enough offensively and know what’s at stake in this game, enough so that they get a win on the run line here so give me Houston -1.5 as my premium pick for this game.
