Mets Looking for Sports Betting Revenge Against Rangers
Posted by: Mike Davis
Run line baseball betting kicks off again this Wednesday. The league has pulled out all the stops to give sportsbook players a full plate of Major League Baseball action to cap off the middle of the week. Before we dive into Wednesday’s matchups, let’s take a quick look at what Tuesday’s action turned up.
Tuesday’s MLB Recap
One of Tuesday’s most alluring contests was the matchup between the Boston Red Sox and the New York Yankees. Earlier this season, the Yankees managed to beat Boston both times they faced each other, so most sports betting fans were expecting a similar result.
That wasn’t the case as the Red Sox picked up their first win over the Yankees of the season, 5-4. With that victory, Boston has now come within a single game of tying the division-leading Yankees. The Red Sox will face the Yanks once again this Wednesday, a perfect opportunity for Boston to take the lead in the AL East.
In addition to that intense rivalry, there were more than a few blowouts dealt Tuesday. The Chicago Cubs beat the Miami Marlins 10-2, the Colorado Rockies shocked the Cleveland Indians 11-3, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 10-2. The biggest blowout of the day came at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds who devoured the St. Louis Cardinals 13-1.
One matchup that proved both competitive and entertaining was the pairing between the Texas Rangers and New York Mets. This past Tuesday, the Rangers got the best of New York 10-8. But now, the Mets have a shot at revenge this Wednesday. Let’s see what the MLB sports odds have to say about this matchup.

When: 8:05 pm ET
Where: Globe Life Park, Arlington, Texas
Series: Game 2 of 2-Game Series
TV: Local Broadcasts
Stream: MLB TV
MLB Sports Odds:
New York Mets +1 ½ (-145) 9 ½ (-105) +145
Texas Rangers -1 ½ (+125) 9 ½ (-115) -155
New York Mets
The Mets may not have a winning record, but their 24-32 tally is good enough to tie them for second in the NL East alongside the Atlanta Braves. However, it doesn’t seem like the Mets will be catching up with division-leading Washington anytime soon, considering the Nationals own a 12 ½ game lead over both New York and Atlanta. The Mets have made the postseason the last two years consecutively.
This series marks the first and only time the Mets will face the Rangers this season. With Texas picking up the first game of the series, New York is hoping to even up the series and finish out on a good note. To help get the job done the Mets will be starting Zack Wheeler, who is 3-3 on the season with a 3.72 ERA. The MLB sports odds have rightfully pegged Wheeler as the underdog this Wednesday night.
The Texas Rangers are doing the best they can to stay alive in the AL West. The Rangers are 27-31 on the season, which ranks them second-to-last in the division, 14 ½ games behind No. 1 Houston. The Rangers aren’t far from being last in the AL West, since they only own a 1 ½ game lead over last-place Oakland.
Yu Darvish will get the start for Texas. Darvish is 5-4 on the season with a 3.13 ERA.
