Playoff chasing teams with experienced starters clash in Cleveland Texas at 8PM EST in a steamy 8/25 evening in Arlington. Wonderful to see all of us assembled again here at HRWager. August is coming to a close soon but this just gives us a higher quality of baseball to pluck profit from. Two established pitchers with teams leading their divisions but still vulnerable to being caught. Where will the profit come from this game where Texas opened near the -145 ML favorite?
Cleveland Texas : Hamels in Excellent Form
Even though he has given up six free passes and a 1.41 WHIP in his last three games, Cole Hamels has worked his way out of jams wonderfully in his last three. Home game against Detroit on 8/13 saw three walks and fourteen hits in seven innings just yield two earned runs. He has not had a bad outing at least since the middle of July. Compare that to Tomlins fate as of late for Cleveland and no wonder the betting action has gone on the Rangers in the overnights.
Tribe Being Hit Hard
5-5 in their last ten, some starters like Tomlin are being shelled on a nightly basis. Home to Toronto, he gave up three home runs last time out. Visits to Yankees and Nationals were equally futile for him. The wagering on the Texas ML has been matched with the interest in the totals. Bar has been set for nine runs and most action has been on the over to drive it to -125. Getting to the point where 9 1/2 will soon be seen by HRW.
Rangers have added Beltran and other key bats at the trade deadline. They have not paid off as of yet but hard to believe all of them can be contained by the likes of Tomlin. The gap between ML and RL is only 60 points but it is enough in this circumstance. -1 1/2 +125 for the Rangers tonight is your MLB Expert Tip of the day. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
