The Texas Rangers and the Arizona Diamondbacks meet today in the last of their three game series from Texas. Al up to date odds for this game can be found at BetOnline sportsbook.
The Rangers showed on Wednesday that they are not just a slugging team. They pulled out a hard-fought low-scoring win largely with help from quality pitching and defense. Joe Nathan, the closer for the Rangers notched his 13th save of the season. Today, Texas will start Scott Feldman who has lost all five of his decisions thus far this season.
The Diamondbacks played very hard on Wednesday, but came up a bit short. They’re starting pitcher, Wade Miley pitched very well over seven innings plus but still took his third loss of the season. Today Arizona starts Daniel Hudson who had a rough outing his last time out and who in 32 innings pitched this season has pitched to a very high 6.06 ERA.
Texas is 2-5 in their last seven games against a team with a losing record, 51-24 in their last 75 home games, and 0-4 in Feldman’s last four starts as a favorite. Arizona is 7-0 in their last seven game three of a series, 4-2 in their last six interleague games, and 5-0 in Hudson’s last five interleague starts. Arizona is 1-8 in the last nine meetings of these two.
Texas has already secured a series win and send their worst pitcher to the hill tonight, making this a play for the Diamondbacks as significant moneyline underdogs at best online sportsbooks.
