Astros vs. Rangers MLB Pick

Sharp Action

With Zack Greinke on the mound, it’s no surprise that the first-place Astros are massive -220 favorites against the last-place Rangers.

Still, bettors with the resources to move the market are finding value with Texas.

After the Rangers opened as +165 underdogs at DraftKings Sportsbook, this number floated to +190, and that’s when the wiseguys struck.

Action Labs’ Bet Signals are reporting a steam move at exactly +190, which, in turn, forced oddsmakers to push this moneyline back down toward the opener.

Big Money

Bettors seem to believe that an Astros win will be a given, evidenced by the 93% of tickets laying the massive monyeline price.

However, the paltry 7% of bets that have landed on Texas make up 29% of the money, a sign that the home underdog has attracted the largest wagers thus far.

PRO Systems

Because bettors are avoiding the Rangers in droves, Texas qualifies for The Action Network’s Betting Against the Public PRO System, which has provided a profit of 146.9 units since 2005 by pinpointing undervalued divisional underdogs being avoided by the public.
