915 Rangers +1.5 -141 over Red Sox
Rangerd are in good position to win this series over Boston by winning the first 2 games of the series and having a good shot with Lance Lynn scheduled to pitch today. Lynn coming off a great start in his last start going 6 innings allowing 6 hits 2 runs and 8 strikeouts vs the A’s and he’s performed well over his career vs guys that will potentially be in the lineup for the Red Sox (.211 OBA .313 OBP). Coming off their World Series win a season ago the Red Sox don’t seem to be the same team. Rick Porcello scheduled to take the mound and he’s coming off a bad start 6 innings allowing 8 hits giving up 4 runs for a WHIP of 1.50 and ERA of 6.00 and he’s having a bad June also with a 1.78 WHIP and 7.59 ERA. Porcello also hasn’t pitched well against potential batters that will be in the lineup for the Rangers with a .279 BA and .331 OBP. Im playing it safe by taking the Rangers to keep it within 1 run but a play for them to win outright and take control of the series is a good play also. Red Sox are 1-7 in their last 8 home games.
