Texas Rangers at Detroit Tigers
The Texas Rangers look to continue their domination of the Detroit Tigers when the two teams kick off a three-game weekend set on Friday. The Rangers have won the past five meetings with the Tigers while averaging 7.2 runs per game in that span.
Rating these teams in several key categories is important for handicappers and Texas has baseball’s No. 7-rated offensive output, at 9.02 hits per game. The Detroit Tigers average 9.22 hits per game, good for No. 4 on the list.
Pitching and defensive stats are important baseball handicapping betting factors and Texas has the No. 21-ranked defence. In the other dugout, the Tigers own the No. 18 mark in runs allowed.
Miami Dolphins at New York Giants
The Giants poached one of Miami’s top players this offseason by bringing in Olivier Vernon and he will be leaned on heavily to contribute in the pass rush for New York this season as they battle with the Eagles, Cowboys, and Redskins for top spot in the NFC East. New York will be under a new regime this year after two time Super Bowl champion Tom Coughlin was let go and while it may take some time to adjust they have the personnel to succeed as Odell Beckham seems to be getting better and better.
Pick: Giants -1
