These two teams are fighting for a Wild Card spot so this is a huge weekend series. Those who bet on MLB will have some interesting trends to consider in this game.
MLB betting has Derek Holland scheduled for Texas on Saturday. He is 5-7 with a 5.04 ERA. His overall bet on MLB numbers may not be great but he was brilliant last Sunday against the Angels, throwing a three-hit shutout. Will he repeat that effort or will he revert back to his old form? He is 3-4 at home this season with a 6.70 ERA as sports betting stats indicate.
Before this MLB betting series started the Red Sox had won 12 of the last 20 meetings including six of the last ten at Texas. It is hard right now to take the Red Sox since they are simply not playing as well as they were earlier in the season and they are in danger of missing the playoffs.
An interesting MLB betting trend is taking the total under when these two teams play. 14 of the last 20 had gone under the MLB betting total before Friday’s game and 6 of the last 10 at Texas had gone under in MLB betting at the sportsbook with one tie.
The teams met last month in Texas and the Rangers swept the Red Sox with all three games going under the MLB betting sportsbook total.
Boston has simply not been a good road team in MLB betting this season. That is one of the reasons they are now fighting for a playoff spot. The other reason is their hitting and pitching numbers have slipped. They are still in the Top 10 in both runs scored and runs allowed as MLB betting stats show but they simply look like a team that could have trouble making the playoffs.
Texas has surged of late in MLB betting. They have been excellent at home this season in sports betting. Texas has very similar bet on MLB numbers to Boston as they are just slightly behind the Red Sox in runs scored and in runs allowed.
