Point Spread: 1.50 | -157.00 Texas (Away)
Texas is hungry to break a seven game slide. This is the finale of a four-game series. Detroit won 14-0, 4-1, and then 4-2 yesterday. While I do think the outright is possible, in the end I'm going to lay the reasonable price for the extra 1.5 runs. Clearly, Mike Foltynewicz (2-9, 5.91 ERA), is nothing to write home about for the Rangers today. But neither is Tyler Alexander (1-1, 4.40) for the Tigers. In fact, Foltynewicz has better peripherals, including WHIP at 1.34, compared to 1.35 for Alexander. This one is going to be decided late, so I'm grabbing the 1.5 runs!
T.M. Prediction: 6-3 Texas.
