May 8th...

this is my friend pick but i am also betting on it...

Minnesota Twins @ Texas Rangers

Rangers -1.5 2.31 7 units

MIN: RHP Brad Radke (3-3, 7.29 ERA)

TEX: LHP John Koronka (3-1, 3.55 ERA)

Rangers suffered 3 straight losses at home to Yankees and saw their lead in AL West shrink to a half game over Oakland. Texas didn't play bad at all, but pitchers had some problems and clutch hits with on men on base situations were scarse. This will be very important 3 game series for the Rangers, who will have a really tough road trip ahead of them after these games:. next 10 games at BOS, NYY and HOU. They really have to get some wins now. Todays matchup looks fine. John Koronka has been one of their best pitchers this season. Last game he pitched into the ninth inning against Baltimore allowing only one run, but got a no-decision in a game Rangers ended up winning 2-1. He has never faced Minnesota in his career. Minnesota starter Brad Radke has struggled with his command most of the season and his 7.29 ERA shows it. against the Rangers, Radke is a career 5-9 with a 4.53 ERA. Basically, i like the -1.5 runline for the Rangers here as the batting power and home park is an obvious advantage for them. Minnesotas batting game is below average and they need a great game from pitchers most of the time to have a shot of winning. I don't think Radke is yet on top of his game and i expect Texas to blow out some frustrations from the lost series with Yankees on him. Odds are really playable imo. Throwing 7 units on this one.

i took Texas Rangers -1 @ 1.80
