The Texas Rangers and the Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Tuesday in Arlington in game two of their interleague series.
The Texas Rangers didn’t get a lot of respect from the odds makers on Monday but it didn’t seem to matter on the field as they beat the Dodgers.

Starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo allowed four hits and struck out four over 7.0 scoreless innings to get the win and Shawn Tolleson earned the save.

Texas is 6-1 in their last seven interleague games, 8-2 in their last 10 home games, and 21-47 as a home underdog. Los Angeles is 6-1 against the AL West, 11-4 in their last 15 interleague road games, and 1-4 in Anderson’s last five road starts. Los Angeles is 4-2 in their last six games in Texas.
The total in this one is set at 9.0 and that is just way too high with these two pitchers going so my free pick is a strong play on the under. I also have a strong pick on the winning team and I will post that in the Premium Area as well as on the App.
