The Houston Astros are listed as -140 money line favorites over the Texas Rangers. 

The Houston Astros enter this game with a record of 63-37 and have won four of their last five games including four wins in a row, and are coming off a game two win at home in this series by a score of 6-1 on Saturday. 

The Texas Rangers enter this game with a record of 50-48 and have lost six games in a row including the first two games of this series.

Let’s take a closer look at these two teams and we’ll start with the underdog Texas Rangers. 

Texas Rangers

The Rangers are one of the best teams at home, but they are eight games under .500 on the road this season. Texas is 50-48 overall, 19-27 on the road and 30-38 as an underdog this season.

The Rangers will send Lance Lynn to the mound for game three of the series. Lynn is 12-5 on the season with a 3.87 ERA while striking out 140 over 128 innings pitched. He is 1-2 in his last three starts against the Astros while allowing an average of 1 run and striking out an average of 9.33 in those games.

Joey Gallo leads the team in home runs with 22. Nomar Mazara and Rougned Odor are tied for the team lead in RBIs with 51 apiece. Shin-Soo Choo leads the team in runs with 62.

Texas is averaging 5.36 runs per game this season which ranks 6th in the MLB. The Rangers are allowing an average of 5.36 runs per game which ranks 26th in the MLB.

Houston Astros

The Houston Astros are likely going to win the AL West again this season and look poised to make another strong run at the World Series. Houston is 63-37 overall, 35-14 at home and 61-29 as a favorite this season. The Astros will send Rogelio Armenteros to the mound for the series finale on Sunday.

Armenteros has yet to figure into a decision this season with a 2.00 ERA while striking out 9 over 9 innings pitched. He will be starting against the Rangers for the first time on Sunday.

Alex Bregman leads the team in home runs, RBIs and runs with 26 home runs, 62 RBIs and 71 runs.

Houston is averaging 5.20 runs per game this season which ranks 9th in the MLB. The Astros are allowing an average of 4.18 runs per game this season which ranks 5th in the MLB. 

Houston Completes the Sweep

The Astros are the better team in this series and even though Lynn has pitched well against the Astros in his last three starts allowing an average of 1 run per game in those games the Astros still look to have the better team on Sunday. Houston is 8-2 in their last ten matchups with Texas while outscoring the Rangers by an average of 7.00 to 3.90 in those games.

The Astros are 3-0 in their last three meetings with the Rangers while outscoring Texas by an average of 7.33 to 2.67 in those contests. I look for those trends to continue in this game with an Astros win over the Rangers in game three of the series on Sunday and completing the sweep at home.
