The Texas Rangers (46-28) and New York Yankees (41-34) will open a 3-game series on Friday night at Yankee Stadium. First pitch will be at 7:05 p.m. ET from the Bronx.

Season series: Rangers lead 3-1

The Rangers took 2 of 3 games from the Chicago White Sox in their most recent series after going 2-1 against the Toronto Blue Jays and winning 4 of their last 5 has given them a 5 1/2-game lead in the AL West. They lead MLB with 451 runs scored this season and despite being without SP Jacob deGrom they own the 7th-best ERA (3.79).

After getting swept by the Boston Red Sox the Yankees bounced back by taking 2 of 3 from the Seattle Mariners. They’re still 9 1/2 games back in the AL East but they’re hanging around thanks to some strong pitching (6th-best ERA at 3.76).

Rangers at Yankees picks and predictions


Rangers 6 Yankees 3


The Rangers have been good on the road this season (22-15) and just won 2 of their 3 games in Chicago last series and I expect that sort of success to continue with Dunning on the hill. They’re a solid value at -115 to beat the Yankees outright BET RANGERS (-115).

Run line/Against the spread

The Rangers have been winning games convincingly as of late which is no surprise given their league-leading offense. Each of their last 7 wins have been by at least 2 runs with their last 3 wins coming by a total of 10 runs. The Yankees haven’t exactly kept games close with each of their last 4 losses coming by at least 3 runs – including losses by 8 and 10 runs.

BET RANGERS -1.5 (+145).


The Rangers could do most of the heavy lifting themselves Friday with Schmidt on the mound. Texas has scored at least 5 runs in each of their last 4 games including an 11-run outburst against the Blue Jays.

The Yankees haven’t scored more than 4 runs in any of their last 4 games but they may not need to plate many against the hot-hitting Rangers for this bet to cash.

BET OVER 8.5 (-115).
