Run line/Against the spread
Consider backing the Rangers — half and half — on both the money and run lines: TEXAS -1.5 (+140) is a solid play in a high-total run environment.
Fatigued bullpens, the starter matchup and a hot, humid night in Baltimore spells a high total. But at 9.5 runs, only a discount price (-107 perhaps?) should trigger any action. Otherwise, PASS.
