ARLINGTON, TX (ATS Consultants) -  American League West rivals square off tonight in Texas when the Rangers host the A's at 8:05PM ET.

ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Rangers are -118 money line favorites over the A's, who are +109 on the ML. The total, meanwhile, is currently sitting at 9.5 runs with Daniel Straily and Nicholas Tepesch on the hill.

LINE MOVEMENT: The Rangers opened as -113 money line favorites but their odds have jumped to -118, while the A's odds have climbed from +104 up to +109. Oakland enters play with a 42-29 overall record and is 20-17 on the road, while Texas is 38-31 overall and 19-14 at home.

PUBLIC BETTING: Of the current wagers placed on tonight’s game, 53% of the betting public currently favors Texas. This information is subject to change, however, so make sure you click on the link provided for the most updated numbers.

MLB FREE PICK: Take Oakland. According to latest MLB trends, Oakland is 4-0 last 4 as a dog, 9-1 last 10 during game 1 of a series, 22-7 last 29 overall and 5-0 in Straily's last 5 starts. Texas is 0-6 last as a favorite, 0-5 in Tepesch's last 5 starts and 1-5 last 6 Monday games.

Oakland (42-29, 20-17 road, 38-33 O/U) is one of the hottest teams in baseball, though they did lose their last two of three against Seattle. Texas (38-31, 19-14 home, 24-42 O/U) has lost six straight and eight of their last 10 to fall out of first place in the American League West as they now sit three games behind the A's. Oakland sends out Dan Straily to the mound against the cold-hitting Rangers, who have scored just eight runs in their six-game losing streak and four against Toronto as they got swept in four. Straily is 3-0 with a 2.20 ERA in hiss last five outings and he is holding opponents to a .179 batting average while walking just four batters in 32 2/3 innings. He takes on struggling rookie Nick Tepesch, who has given up 11 runs in 12 innings over his last two starts. The Athletics will get back to their streaking ways against an ice-cold Rangers team. Oakland travels to Rangers Ballpark in Arlington to take on Texas at 8:05pmET.

MLB FREE PICK: OAKLAND A'S +109
