TEXAS: The Rangers have been a mixed bag for bettors with Perez on the hill. They're 13-6 in his last 19 starts overall but winless at 0-5 in his last five road starts. They're also 7-2 in his last nine outings versus teams from the American League West, but are just 1-8 in his last nine road starts versus a team with a winning record.
SEATTLE: The Mariners haven't been a good play with Paxton on the hill at all, losing seven of his last nine home starts and four of his last five starts overall. They're also 2-10 in his last 12 starts when their opponent allows five runs or more in their previous game (the Rangers allowed 14 runs yesterday) and are 3-13 in his last 16 outings after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.
OUR PICK: The Rangers should rebound following yesterday's ugly loss in Seattle. They're 5-1 in their last six games versus the Mariners and are 6-2 in Perez's last eight starts versus Seattle. They've also won seven of nine overall, are 10-2 in their last 12 games versus American League West rivals and are 4-1 in their last five games after allowing five runs or more in their previous contest.
