Oakland Athletics vs. Texas Rangers Odds, Picks, Predictions: Can Marcus Semien and the Rangers Dominate?

The Texas Rangers vs. the Oakland Athletics will take place from the Coliseum on Saturday night for Game 2 of this AL West affair. The A's won last night's game behind a great outing by southpaw Cole Irvin. Irvin has enjoyed a good season so far and was able to shut down this Texas offense. Let's dive into my prediction, pick, and odds for the game between the Texas Rangers and the Oakland Athletics.

Oakland Athletics vs. Texas Rangers Prediction

Texas has had an up and down season as they have not been able to get over the .500 hump. Texas still has a chance to sneak into a playoff spot while Oakland is already looking to the future. They blew up a good part of their team in the offseason and will likely add to that once the trade deadline hits. They have a few pieces that could help a contending team.

Texas was aggressive in the off-season, inking deals with a pair of all-stars in Corey Seager and Marcus Semien. Semien has had his struggles this season but is a guy that can turn it around at any point. Seager has had a stellar year for the Rangers as he was named an all-star again this season. Seager also participated in the home run derby and was eliminated in the first round by Julio Rodriguez but tuned in a good performance.

Texas will send Matt Busch to the bump tonight, and he will be opposed by James Kaprellian, who gets the ball for Mark Kotsay and the As. 

I will be backing the Rangers on the money line here today. This should be a nice bounce-back spot for Texas after losing yesterday's game. I believe in this Texas team and that they are capable of going on a nice run. They have the lineup to do it, and if their pitching can hold up, this is a dangerous team.

Oakland is a limited team when it comes to swinging the bats, and I believe that the Rangers will shut them down today; this should be the perfect spot to back Texas at a solid price.
