Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers, which team should you back in the battle of Texas? JT Miller makes his pick.

Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers Prediction: Are Jose Altuve, Jose Urquidy and the Astros Worth Backing?

Well this write up will be simpler than most as the argument is simple and I am not diving into too much data. I am going back to the Houston Astros here tonight on what I would say is an excellent line after they dropped game one of the series last night in Arlington.

Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers Line Movement

Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers Prediction

They lead from the top of the first and seemed to have a strong hold on the game until The Texas Rangers, who to be fair I think are a solid ball club, clawed their way back into the game and stole it in the bottom of the eighth inning. The Rangers have been solid this season, I love the lineup and think they are building something real over there, but they simply just are not the Houston Astros or what I would consider to be an equal caliber team.

Houston just has incredible talent top to bottom and that lineup continues to produce and be what it has been over the past few seasons, one of the most dominant in baseball. Jose Urquidy has the ball for Houston and he struck out ten Texas Rangers last time he faced them.

Dane Dunning is nothing to write home about and the Houston hitters have seen success against him although with a limited sample size. They are batting .326 with a .379 wOBA; I can only assume that after blowing the lead and game one of the series last night they come out strong today. They took a lead and got complacent, I would not be surprised if Houston continues to pour runs on all throughout the game this evening but either way I believe Houston gets one back tonight and love getting them at this price after a loss.
