The Texas Rangers and the Toronto Blue Jays meet for game one of their weekend series in Arlington. All MLB odds can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Rangers got off to a blistering start this season, but have come down to Earth as of late. They still lead the division by 5 games and seem to be in relative control of the division as a whole. Josh Hamilton is hitting .379 and is s definite MVP candidate. The Rangers pitching staff has also been solid and Derek Holland takes the mound for the home start tonight. Holland is looking to rebound after dropping three of his last four decisions.
The Blue Jays are off to a pretty good start themselves and are playing competitive ball in the always tough AL East. The Blue Jays have a light hitting club that is led by a pretty good pitching staff. Brandon Morrow pitches tonight for the Blue Jays and he has a 2.63 ERA this season so for and he has won an impressive 5 of his last 6 starts lately as well.
Texas is 45-22 in their last 67 home games, 40-12 in their last 52 games following a loss, and 16-5 in Holland’s last 21 home starts against a team with a winning record. Toronto is 2-8 in their last 10 road games against a team with a winning record, 0-4 in their last four road games against a left handed starter, and 8-2 in Morrow’s last 10 road starts against a team with a winning record. Toronto has won five of the last seven meetings of these two.
We think Holland will pitch well tonight and expect Morrow to hold his own against the Rangers so we like the under in this one at the sports book.
