  • Time: 8:05 PM EST Tuesday April 29, 2014 FSSW

    Location: Globe Life Park in Arlington, Arlington, Texas

    The Texas Rangers host the Oakland A’s in an AL West match up.

    In their last games: In Game 1 of this 3-game series yesterday the A’s beat the Rangers 4-0.

    Oakland’s Sonny Gray tossed 3-hitter for a complete-game shutout against the Rangers yesterday.

    The Rangers have won 3 of 4 games facing the A’s this season with Oakland winning the most recent meeting.

    Baseball dimeline betting is the only way to go if you want to profit betting MLB games. Why risk $135 to win $100 when you can risk $130? Why get paid $125 for a winner when a winning bet on the very same game can give you $130?

    Here are some additional handicapping angles to ponder:

    The A’s are 4-0 in their last 4 games against the Rangers in Texas.

    In the last 5 games between these 2 teams in Texas the total has gone Under 4 times.

    The Rangers are 5-0 in Martin Perez’s last 5 starts.

    The A’s 5-0 in Scott Kazmir’s last 5 starts.

    Total Pick:

    Both of tonight’s starters have been razor sharp so far this season. Oakland’s Scott Kazmir has had 5 quality starts in a row, pitching 33 innings giving up 22 hits and only 6 earned runs. Ranger’s southpaw Martin Perez has been flawless in his last 3 hurling 26 innings of 11 hit ball and not giving up a single run. We know this is the square play here but hard not to bite when the online sportsbooks hang up an 8 for the total. Take Under 8 (-115).
