Rangers vs. Rockies Prediction
Are the Rangers a safe play on the money line when they visit the Rockies tonight at 8:40PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Rangers are -115 money line favorites versus the Rockies, who have odds of +105 to pull off the upset tonight at home. With Cole Hamels set to face Tyler Anderson in the pitching matchup, the over/under currently sits at 10.5 runs.
TEXAS: The Rangers have won 27 of Hamel's last 34 starts and are 8-1 in his last nine outings when he pitches the first game of a new series. They're also 16-3 in his last 19 starts versus a team with a losing record and have won 15 of 18 when he faces an opponent that allowed five runs or more in its previous game. (The Rockies lost 10-7 to the Marlins at home on Sunday.)
COLORADO: The Rockies have won all five of Anderson's last five starts and are 4-0 in his last four home starts as well. They're also 4-0 in his last four starts when he's coming off a quality start in his last appearance, but they've lost 32 of 42 against teams from the American League West.
OUR PICK: The Rangers have been a good bet of late, winning seven of 10 overall and six of eight versus National League West opponents. The Rockies, meanwhile, have dropped 65 of their last 92 interleague matchups and are just 5-15 in their last 20 interleague games versus a team with a winning record.
