Betting On Rangers Red Sox - Rangers And Red Sox Clash In Intriguing Early-Season Set

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 4/16/2012 8:08:51 PM

The defending American League champion Texas Rangers are firmly in the sights of the Boston Red Sox, creating a fascinating two-game series in the second half of April.

Texas Rangers @ Boston Red Sox – Series Overview

Game 1: Tuesday, April 17

If you are interested in betting on baseball this season, this two-game series between Texas and Boston, which has snuck up fairly quickly on a lot of pundits, is going to provide a lot of information for the rest of the season. The Rangers and Red Sox have two powerful lineups and  quality starting pitching, so when they clash at Fenway Park, a great place for hitters, there won't be a lot of subtleties to grasp. Baseball aficionados will be able to see which pitchers have the right stuff and which hitters are locked in at this point in the season. It's very easy to envision Texas and Boston playing in the American League playoffs come October, so plenty of people in and around the sport will be taking their fair share of notes.

In game one of this series, Colby Lewis starts for Texas and goes against Jon Lester of Boston. Lewis threw 6 2/3 shutout innings in his most recent start, while Lester went eight innings and gave up three runs in his last outing. Both of these pitchers are throwing well, but since Lewis didn't get extended as much in his previous trip to the mound, the sense here is that in the month of April, when pitchers are still getting used to the rhythms of regular combat, Lewis will be a little fresher and will therefore make fewer mistakes in the strike zone. Lewis won't dominate, but he'll provide a quality start while Lester will struggle. If you're going to lean to a team in the first of these two games, take Texas.

MLB Betting Pick: Texas

Game 2: Wednesday, April 18

The team that has to stand out as a very attractive choice as the American League favorite for legions of sports betting experts is Texas, but in one game, it's hard to apply the same calculus. When you do your homework and assess your sports bet on this second game of the two-game set between the Rangers and Red Sox, it will be hard to go against Boston.Texas starts Derek Holland, who gave up two runs in 7 1/3 innings in his most recent outing, while Boston goes with its ace, Josh Beckett.

In his first start of the year, Beckett gave up five home runs to the big-hitting Detroit Tigers, and people in Beantown worried if Beckett had lost his edge or if he was going to be in for a long, hard year. Beckett silenced his doubters last Friday when he limited the Tampa Bay Rays to one run in eight innings. Beckett should be the more confident pitcher in this matchup. Expect him to pitch with great confidence and lead the Red Sox to a split of the series.
