Betting On Yankees Rangers – Rangers Look To Continue Dominant Start With Yankees In Town

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 4/20/2012 2:50:25 PM

After coming so close to bringing home a World Series Championship last season, many online betting fans were curious to see how the Texas Rangers would respond starting over at the bottom of the ladder. Any doubts that fans had about the Rangers being a legitimate contender this season disappeared after the team won 11 of its first 13 games, and all eyes will be on Texas early this week as they host Alex Rodriguez and the New York Yankees in a three-game set.

While the Rangers have the best record in baseball through the first couple of weeks, the Yankees have stumbled out of the gate with a record that has hovered around the .500 mark. New York split its first six road games, and will be in tough for its first game in Texas when it sends Hiroki Kuroda to the mound opposite Derek Holland. Holland has allowed just two earned runs in each of his last two starts, both of them wins, and is settling down nicely among a group of young starting Rangers’ pitchers that rank among the best in baseball. Kuroda on the other hand has allowed at least four runs in two of his three starts, and is coming off a horrible performance against the Minnesota Twins, in which he allowed eight earned in just 4.1 innings of work.

The Yankees might not be feeling any more comfortable about the second pitching matchup in this series, as Phil Hughes will get the call against Yu Darvish for Texas. Hughes last 5.1 innings against the Twins for his first win of the season in his last outing, but that was his longest of three appearances so far, and when he isn’t throwing strikeouts he is giving up far too many hits. Darvish has settled in nicely for the Rangers after appearing shaky in his debut, and that’s probably because the Texas bats have given him a ton of run support with 27 runs combined to win all three sportsbook games he has started.

The scariest part about this sports bet series is that while the Rangers have the pitching edge in each of the first two games, their best starter of the three so far this season won’t get the call until the finale. 26-year old Matt Harrison allowed just a single run through his first 14 innings of work to win his first two starts, and has the best ERA in the American League with a 0.64 mark. If New York is going to have any chance at avoiding the sweep, they are going to need to find a way to manufacture some runs against the lefty, with the 2-0 Ivan Nova providing his best outing of the year to keep the Rangers’ from getting too many runs of their own. That could be easier said than done at this point, as Texas continues to play like a team desperate to get back to the World Series.
