The Texas Rangers have been one of the hottest teams in baseball, winning seven of their last 10 games and 10 of their last 15.
They send Nathan Eovaldi to the mound to face the Detroit Tigers on Monday. The veteran has been enjoying a resurgence, posting a 6-2 record, 2.60 ERA, and 0.97 WHIP this season.
The Tigers will counter with Matthew Boyd, who owns a 3-3 record, 5.74 ERA, and 1.42 WHIP across nine starts this campaign.
Here is our best Rangers vs. Tigers pick (odds via our best MLB betting sites; pick confidence based on a 1-to-5-star scale).

The Rangers are not only one of the hottest clubs in the majors, they employ possibly the hottest hitter in baseball in leadoff batter Marcus Semien.
Semien is riding a career-high 17-game hit streak, which is tied for the longest current streak in MLB. He also ranks second in the majors in runs scored (46), fifth in hits (64), and fourth in WAR (3.0 per Baseball Reference).
Due to his hot hitting, Semien's hit props are all overpriced, but there remains some value on his total bases prop.
DraftKings, FanDuel, and BetRivers are all offering even money odds on Semien to hit the Over on 1.5 total bases. During his streak, Semien has cashed this Over on eight occasions, including four of his last five games.
Semien doesn't have much of a history against Boyd, with one hit in six career at-bats. But Boyd's struggles this season also include a .238/.385/.524 line against leadoff hitters.
