Texas Rangers vs. Houston Astros MLB Saturday Betting Odds

Texas Rangers: Look to regain AL West Division lead

In case you haven’t noticed, the best race in the Majors is happening in the American League West. Heading into Saturday action, the Texas Rangers are just a half game back of the Oakland Athletics for first overall. Texas is well aware of the fact that they need to make hay while the sun is shining and a series against the lowly Astros means the sun is beaming bright. Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish is 3-0 during his career versus Houston and he has given up just five runs and tossed 33 strikeouts over 23 2/3 innings pitched. Darvish is 2-0 against the ‘Stros this year – including a near perfect game on the second day of the 2013 MLB season.

Houston Astros: Back to their losing ways and the worst team in baseball

Following a mid-June “surge” where they posted a  7-3 record, it’s back to “same old – same old” for Houston as the Astros have lost nine of their last eleven games. The ‘Stros (31-56) have now fallen back into last place overall in the Majors and they have been outscored by 82-34 count during their recent skid. Those numbers include a 10-5 dismantling by the Rangers in Arlington last night – plus 12-0 and 8-0 recent loses to the Tampa Bay Rays. Checking the odds at sportsbook.com we find Texas is thick chalk at -1.5 (-140) ATS and -300 on the money line. We will lay the runs and back the Rangers in this MLB AL West battle tonight!
