The Battle of Texas is coming down to the wire in the most exciting division race in all of professional baseball. The Astros sit only 1.5 games ahead of the Rangers, meaning that the upcoming series in Dallas could very well decide who comes away with the AL West over the last twenty games of the regular season.
Look for the Rangers to take advantage of the Astros tonight and win in confidence. The Astros are terrible on the road. Their recent funk continued with Monday's 5-3 defeat in Texas. They have now lost 7 of the last 9 games.
The Texas Rangers are playing great and will be the more motivated team tonight. They are currently chasing the Astros for 1st place in the West and have a great opporunity this series. Look for a great performance by the Rangers, I'm predicting a 5-3 win
Pick: Texas Rangers ML (-115)
