Texas Rangers Fantasy Spin

Joey Gallo went 2-for-3 with five RBI and a run scored to help the Rangers edge the Astros 11-10 on Sunday. Long before the game turned into a shootout, Gallo ripped a two-run triple into the right field corner in the first inning to get the scoring started. An RBI single and a couple sacrifice flies accounted for the rest of his runs batted in on the afternoon. The 25-year-old now has eight homers and 22 RBI, and perhaps most surprisingly, he's slashing .281/.382/.734 overall. With advanced numbers suggesting there's some merit to the hot start, it could be the early days of a new and improved Gallo we're seeing.

Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin

Marcus Semien went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI as the Athletics fell to the Blue Jays on Sunday afternoon in Oakland. Semien delivered an RBI single during a three-run rally in the eighth inning. He also scored a pair of runs in the contest. The 28-year-old shortstop is off to a terrific start to his 2019 season, slashing .322/.392/.500 with three homers, 11 RBI and one stolen base.

MLB Betting Trends

Texas

The Rangers are just 2-10 in their last 12 games versus the A’s.

Oakland

The A’s have won 16 of their last 21 meetings with the Rangers in Oakland.

Prediction:

The Rangers are attractive here because they beat the Astros twice over the weekend and the A’s are marred in a three-game losing slump. That said, the A’s are 7-1 in their last eight games versus a left-handed starter and are 39-19 in their last 58 home games. The Rangers, meanwhile, are just 8-22 in their last 30 road games and have struggled to win in Oakland.

The Pick: Oakland A’s -145
