Seattle Mariners vs. Texas Rangers
Play Texas Rangers ML (-136)
By Jimmy Boyd
Texas is showing some great value here at home against the Mariners. Texas will send out Yu Darvish for his second start of the season. Darvish allowed just 1 run on 3 hits in 5 innings and most impressively only walked one hitter. I look for Darvish to come out just as strong here and cool off the hot bats of the Mariners.
Texas also has an advantage here playing on a day of rest, while Seattle just played in a slugfest last night in San Diego, where they overcame a 10-run deficit to beat the Padres 16-13. Look for the Mariners to come out a bit flat here in this one.
Rangers are 5-1 in their last 6 home games against a team with a winning record and 8-2 in Darvish’s last 10 starts when their opponent is coming in off a game where they scored 5 or more runs. Take Texas!
