Tex P Matt Harrison looked average again in allowing 4 Earned runs on 8 hits in just over 4 innings. Bos P Josh Beckett looked below average giving up 8 runs on 8 hits with 3 homeruns. Texas somehow squeaked it out in t
he 9th and got out of Boston with 2 wins.
Today’s Game is a 7:05 PM CST Start
Detroit 60-52 (W2) +110 @ Texas 65-45 (W2) -130 – Over/Under 9.5 Runs
Tex P Scott Feldman (6-6, 4.52 ERA) has arguably become the ace of this team after collecting 6 straight W’s and allowing just 3 runs in his last 24 innings. He’s 0-2 lifetime in 4 starts vs the Tigers, but something tells me today will be another big night for Feldman.
Det P Max Scherzer (10-6, 4.72 ERA) has given up 11 runs in his past 3 starts and tied the most hits given up this year (10). He is a strikeout guru averaging 9 K’s in his past 4 starts, which could be a strong indicator of the under.
Josh Hamilton Watch:
John FINALLY hits a Homerun, goes 3-5, and drives in 4. Clearly showing signs of turning things around with this multi-hit streak happening.
Josh Hamilton Prediction Tonight: 1-4 – A single keeping the streak alive. Scherzer will be tough.
The Computer says be weary of the Rangers again today.
TEXAS 5.5 DETROIT 4.0
-The Texas Rangers are 135-88 +27.82 units since 2007 at home when the total is between 10 and 11.
-The Tigers are only 2-6 -42.9% roi this season on the road cheaper than +115.
*Since 2011, the Rangers are 43-22 +12.73 units as favorites against .500+ teams starting righties.
Computer really likes Feldman in this spot, and it’s tough to blame it. The Under started at 10.5 runs and has since dropped to 9.5 which is right where the computer prediction is being projected. The line movement could help the lean, but we’ll just consider it a lean, as opposed to a play.
