Texas Rangers Betting – Rangers Reloaded, Ready For Another Run This Season

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 4/4/2012 4:33:12 PM

With opening day just hours away for the Texas Rangers, and the 25-man roster now locked in, the time has come for the curtain to lift for the teams across the MLB and the sports bet regular season to begin on North American soil. It hasn’t been that long since the Rangers were last on the field, fighting for their first World Series championship, and coming up just short against the St. Louis Cardinals. Other than the team replacing former ace CJ Wilson with Japanese sensation Yu Darvish, not much has changed in Texas since they won the American League a year ago, and the biggest question now is whether or not they will get another chance to finally bring a title home.

The Rangers had to be bitter as they watched the headlines break about their former ace signing a long-term deal with the division rival Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, especially considering the way that they helped build Wilson up to this point in his career. The addition of Darvish should help erase the loss of Wilson from a talent standpoint though, and with Neftali Feliz to rely on as a starter until he returns to the bullpen for the playoffs, Texas’ starting rotation appears to be in pretty good shape. Darvish will be slotted in to the No. 1 spot at the top of the rotation, with Feliz at the opposite end, and a combination of Derek Holland, Colby Lewis, Alexei Ogando and Matt Harrison filling in the spots in between.

It’s no sports betting secret that for as strong as the pitching staff looks on paper, the real strength of this Rangers’ team is its offense, led by Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz. The Angels loaded up this past offseason with the addition of Albert Pujols to an already strong batting order, but that was a necessary move to compete with Texas’ depth from top to bottom. Considering that Mike Napoli is the team’s seventh hitter, and he batted in 30 home runs a year ago, it is hard to deny the depth down the chart. This team has an excellent blend of speed and power with the perfect mix of young and veteran talents, and all of the experience that they gained as a unit on their run to the World Series will only help make them better this season.

One of the biggest reasons why the Rangers are still considered a top sportsbook favorite to return to the World Series this season is the terrific job that the club has done with its young prospects over the years, setting the team up to be a legitimate contender for quite some time. The offense is Texas’ strength right now, but whether or not the team has the arms to compete with the Angels and New York Yankees to represent the AL once again is another story. This team should be good for around 95 wins this season, but don’t expect another run like last year.
