MLB Prop Bets: Texas Rangers vs Houston Astros Predictions & Picks

MLB Prop Bets Predictions

Key Stat: The Astros should not have too many problems winning the series rubber against the Rangers

Tip Reasoning

  • Texas are 1-9 in the last ten MLB games
  • The Rangers will send inexperienced Cole Ragans to the hill tonight in Game 3
  • Ragans is yet to record a win in his MLB career

Houston Astros will host Texas Rangers in a series rubber on Wednesday evening at Minute Maid Park. The AL West leaders will have a nice opportunity to conclude the series in the best possible fashion going face to face with an inexperienced Rangers’ pitcher tonight. Texas stunned the Astros 3-4 on the road last night but they will face a big task trying to repeat such a scenario this time around with Cole Ragans on the mound.

Ragans is yet to record a win in his MLB career. He has been in action just four times in his debut season for the Rangers. Cole is at a 0-2 win-loss record at the moment with fairly modest statistical parameters in the process. He has a ERA of 4.42 and a 1.53 WHIP. We know that the Astros have been far from impressive offensively in the last couple of weeks but they have to exploit such a pitcher tonight. We can thus see the value in backing Houston Astros to have at least a two-run lead after the opening five innings of the game at the odds of +100.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: Houston Astros had a team ERA of 1.66 in the last ten outings

  • The Rangers will go into this off the back of nine defeats in the last ten matches
  • The Astros will have an experienced Cristian Javier on the hill tonight
  • Javier has a 3.07 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP in 20 starts this term

The Astros are 44-21 at home this season and we expect them to ne in full control of the happenings on the pitch tonight. They will have Cristian Javier on the mound for this series rubber affair. Javier is 8-9 this season with a 3.07 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. He should be able to make the difference on the occasion, especially if we know that the Rangers have by no means been an impressive offensive team of late. Texas had a .223 batting average in the last ten outings. Knowing that Houston had a fantastic 1.66 team ERA over the previous ten matches, we see Texas Rangers Under 2.5 team runs as a great betting option at the +100 odds.
