Texas Rangers vs. New York Yankees
This recommendation comes down to one simple premise: I will take Texas (one of the best teams in MLB) as my MLB Pick at +125 underdog anytime against a mediocre New York Yankees team. Chi Chi (Alex) Gonzalez will be getting the start here for Texas and this will be his first start of the season since being called up from Triple A Round Rock. He pitched well in his last few starts down there with a 2-0 record and 3.46 ERA in his last three outings and it’s worth noting his first four starts with Texas last season resulted in a 0.90 ERA for him.

New York was shut down by a mediocre Minnesota Twins pitching staff in the last two games of their weekend series scoring just 3 runs combined in the last two games of that series and I’m not fully trusting of their lineup to hit all that well here against Chi Chi Gonzalez. On the flip side, Ivan Nova will get the starting assignment for the New York Yankees and he has had a rough go of it recently allowing 27 runs in his last 34 innings of work over his last six starts and the Yankees are just 2-4 in his last six starts. Texas is 48-27 on the season including a strong 21-15 road record facing a .500 New York Yankees squad.

Starting pitching matchup aside, this MLB betting line is out of whack considering the current realities of these two teams and that provides value on Texas at an underdog price here on Monday night.
