New York Mets vs Texas Rangers Betting Odds

The total runs margin is set at 8.5 with both ways at -110.
The New York Mets will host the Texas Rangers for this interleague series and are hoping this is the opponent that will allow their bats to finally get back on high level. The Mets are on a season-high three game losing streak where they have been outscored 14-3. Last game out, they only produced two hits and were shut out in a 2-0 loss to the Astros on Wednesday. The Rangers come in off a series win over the Kansas City Royals where they took two of three and are feeling pretty good and confident at the moment.
The Rangers won’t present the same pitching dominance that the Mets saw against the Astros and the Mets will go back to the winning column. The Mets will come out swinging early and get a few runs on the board and never look back in route to a blowout victory in the series opener.
