Detroit Tigers vs. Texas Rangers

June 5, 2024


AL Division foes will battle it out in Game 3 of their series, with the Detroit Tigers (31-30) and Texas Rangers (29-32) taking the field on Wednesday, June 5 at 8:05 PM ET at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. The Rangers are slight favorites to end the losing streak with a moneyline at -135.

Detroit Tigers Betting Preview

The Tigers have won their last three games and are seeking to extend their win streak. They have won their first two of this series, holding the Rangers to one run in both instances.

As Kenta Maeda (2-2) takes the mound, pitching could be an issue. He currently offers a 6.25 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP. He must have an excellent start on the mound if they want a shot at winning.

Their offense has several quality players, such as Matt Vierling, who has a batting average of .287. They also have Riley Greene, who has 11 home runs and nearly leads the team with 24 RBIs.

The Tigers have a .233 batting average, allowing their opponents to put up .236. This is a slightly negative ratio, which could eventually hurt them in this game.

Texas Rangers Betting Preview

The Rangers are 2-3 in their last five games and need to get back on track after dropping the first two of this series. The losses have not been bad, but they need to stimulate more offense than just one run a game.

They will have Jose Urena (1-5) on the mound to start, who has an ERA of 3.74 and a WHIP of 1.34. Their team ERA stands at .390. Having Urena to start is already more appealing than what the Tigers have, which will likely impact this game.

The Rangers have Adolis Garcia leading them with 40 RBIs (tied for 13th in the league). They also have Josh Smith chiming in with a .280 batting average. The two of them should have a good start on firing up the offense.

At the plate, they have been posting a .242 batting average and allowing their opponents to average .230. This matchup should be the turning point for getting back on track, as all signs on paper show them succeeding.
