The Texas Rangers and the Oakland A’s will meet tonight from Arlington. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The A’s looked to be hitting their peak and looked to be gaining some ground on the Angels and Rangers but fell back in the division race and fell back even further after 7-2 loss yesterday. That makes a loss in 4 of 5 games and the bats have struggled significantly during that stretch. Tonight the Athletics will send left-hander Travis Blackley to the mound as he is looking for his fourth straight quality start. He has only allowed 13 hits in 21 innings of work in his last three outings.
The Rangers are simply rolling. It seems as though whatever you look at the boxscore they win. They have won 9 of 11 overall and the pitching and hitting in this series versus the A’s has been clutch like it has been all season. Yu Darvish will take them out tonight for the Rangers and is looking to bounce back office on after a subpar outing for him his last time out.
While Blackley has not been a terrible picture this season, Darvish has been amazing. We think Darvish is hittable, but do not think Oakland has the best to expose him so we’ll take Texas and the spread in runs in this game at online sportsbooks.
