Rangers bounce back

The Rangers bounced back from the loss on Thursday by picking up a 12-5 win on Friday. Texas is now 18-28 overall and 11-12 on the road. The Rangers are putting up 4.13 runs per game this season and allowing 5.28 per contest.

Ariel Jurado is making his MLB debut for the Rangers tonight. The 22-year-old from Panama will take the mound for Texas in this rubber match.

White Sox back to losing

The White Sox were unable to string together consecutive wins by losing on Friday night. Chicago is now 11-30 overall and 4-16 at home. The White Sox are putting up 3.85 runs per game this season while allowing 5.80 per contest on defense.

Lucas Giolito takes the mound for the White Sox tonight. He has appeared in eight games this year and has a 2-4 record with a 6.91 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. Giolito has thrown 41.2 innings this season and has 32 walks with 24 strikeouts.

MLB Betting Trends

Texas

The Rangers are just 5-16 in their last 21 games following a win and 1-4 in their last five Game 3’s of a series.

Chicago

The White Sox are just 2-9 in their last 11 games against AL West opponents and 1-5 in their last six Saturday games.

Prediction:

While the Rangers are debuting a new pitcher, I think he can have success against the White Sox tonight. Chicago isn’t a great hitting team. Giolito has really struggled on the mound, especially with walks. I think that opens the door for Texas to grab another road victory.

 

The Pick: Texas Rangers -105
