How To Bet On Red Sox Rangers: Red Sox Need To Make Ground When They Travel To Texas

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/19/2012 6:03:49 PM

The Boston Red Sox are still very much in the playoff chase because of the new added-team playoff format, but they need to do something against an elite team such as the Texas Rangers.

Boston Red Sox @ Texas Rangers – Series Overview

Game 1: Monday, July 23

If you are interested in betting on baseball, especially within an online sports betting legal context, you will have a hard time picking the first game of this series between Boston and Texas. The visiting Red Sox, as they go into Arlington, Tex., will send Jon Lester to the bump with a decidedly mediocre 4.49 earned-run average. The Rangers will go with starter Roy Oswalt, who has been pummeled on multiple occasions since making the jump from the National League (and the Philadelphia Phillies) to the American League.
Oswalt's earned-run average has risen to 6.26, a terrible number for anyone, but especially for a man who has crafted such a distinguished and generally consistent career. Can Oswalt gather himself in this game and deliver his best stuff against Boston's batting order? It's certainly possible. However, it is not likely. Lester has not been brilliant for Boston this season, but matched against Oswalt, he and his team should fare well. Go with Boston in the opener of this series.

MLB Betting Pick: Boston

Game 2: Tuesday, July 24

When you do your homework and assess your bet on this second game of the three-game series, you will definitely want to go with Texas. Felix Doubront is part of the future for the Red Sox' staff. With an average but not quite terrible 4.41 earned-run average, Doubront has shown the ability to gain a foothold in the majors, with the hope that he will fine-tune the craft and technique of pitching next season, when Boston manager Bobby Valentine will expect a lot more from him.

For now, though, Doubront is going to have a very hard night at the office against Texas' lineup of relentless and talented hitters. The Rangers will go with Colby Lewis, a cornerstone of the team's starting rotation and a man who has a very solid 3.51 ERA. Lewis is a proven pitcher, which is something that can't quite be said about Doubront at this point in time. The Rangers should rate as a clear favorite on Tuesday in game two.

MLB Betting Pick: Texas

Game 3: Wednesday, July 25

In the finale of this series, the Red Sox will send starter Franklin Morales to the hill with a 3.16 earned-run average. The Rangers will go with Derek Holland, who possesses a 4.57 ERA. Holland has not pitched particularly well this season, but he owned the stage in Game 4 of the World Series last fall and knows what to do on the mound. The verdict here is that online sports books will place odds that are favorable to Texas on Wednesday night. Holland will answer the bell, while the Rangers will hammer Morales, who has not encountered many moments as big as this one in his career.
