The Texas Rangers are 9=1 in their last 10 games and now hold a 3.5 game lead over the Houston Astros for the top spot in the AL West. They also have the second most scoring differential in Major League Baseball at +182.
They have a chance to complete the 3-0 series sweep against the San Francisco Giants on Sunday afternoon. Can they get it done? I certainly think so.
Let's dive into the odds for the game and then I'll break down my best bet.
Rangers vs. Giants odds, run line, and total
Rangers vs. Giants prediction and pick
For some reason, the Rangers are set as underdogs in this game and I won't hesitate to back them on the road in San Francisco.
We have one of the best offenses over the past month against one of the worst. Over the last 30 days, the Rangers rank fourth in the Majors in OPS at .816. Meanwhile, the Giants are dead last over that time frame with an OPS of .615. They're also batting just .204 over that span.
Dane Dunning has struggled a bit in recent starts, but he's due for a bounce back against this Giants offense. He still has a strong 3.21 ERA on the year, so he shouldn't struggle much against a team that's batting barely above .200 over the past month.
I won't hesitate to back the Rangers in this one.
