3 Unit Play Take #928 Texas -117 over Detroit (8:05pm est):
The Texas Rangers have looked like the much better of these two teams during this series so far with two easy wins by five or more runs while their lone loss was a tough one run defeat. They have outscored the Tigers 18-7 in the first three games overall. The Rangers have the best record in the American League at home this season and face a Tigers team who is under .500 on the road.
Derek Holland gets the call here for Texas and Holland has been a guy we have done very well backing this season. He comes in with an ERA of just 2.93 and a WHIP of of only 1.07. Those numbers have been even more impressive at home with a 1.57 ERA and a WHIP below 1.00 at just 0.96 with all three home starts this year being at least seven innings pitched and allowing two or less runs in each of the three home contests and doing so against some of the better offenses in baseball also (Red Sox, Rays and Angels).
The Detroit Tigers just don't look like the same baseball team without their center fielder and leadoff man Austin Jackson on the field. Jackson went on the disabled list about a week ago and since then Detroit has struggled going just 3-4 overall but two of those wins came against the hapless Houston Astros. Even more disturbing is that in the non-Houston games the Tigers have averaged just 2.5 runs per game in their four other contests and haven't scored over four runs in any of those games also.
Take Texas here in this one. My NBA post-season results have fallen right in line with all my 2013 NBA plays, a almost unheard of 60% win rate overall which is top standard in this industry. Keep in mind this also over a nice large sample size of 100 plays overall for the year. Join me the rest of the pro hoops playoffs and lets make some money.
Thank you and good luck,
