MLB odds on Thursday include a rivalry game between the Houston Astros and Texas Rangers.
The Rangers have been the better of the two teams this season and MLB betting odds at the sportsbook have favored them in this series.
MLB odds scheduling information tells us that this is the finale of a three-game series. It is the sixth game of a nine-game road trip for the Astros. What makes this game interesting in terms of MLB odds scheduling is that the game is the last one of a 10-game homestand for the Rangers.
Before the MLB odds series began the Rangers had won 12 of the last 20 meetings between the two teams. Texas had won 6 of the last 10 home games against the Astros in sportsbook MLB odds. Since these teams are rivals they do play each year in Interleague action. Last year the Rangers won two of the three home games against the Astros in MLB odds.
With these two teams you would expect a lot of runs, but in the sports betting series that has not always been the case. Six of the last ten games in this series had gone under the sportsbook MLB odds total. Last year, two of the three games in Texas went under the MLB odds number.
The Astros this season have actually been just as good on the road as at home. That is not saying much though in terms of MLB odds. The Astros have been a disappointing team this season for sports betting gamblers. MLB betting odds information tells us that Houston has not scored enough runs and their pitching has been weak. The only good news for Houston is that the rest of the division has not run away and hid yet this season.
Texas has played very well for the most part this season. Texas continues to hit the ball well and their pitching has been better than expected. The Rangers rank in the Top 10 in runs scored as MLB odds stats show. They are not great in runs allowed as sports betting stats show but at least they are not at the bottom of the league. The Rangers have been very solid at home this season and are a deserving favorite in MLB odds against Houston.
