Texas Rangers vs Houston Astros
Thu. Mar 29, 2018 2:35 PM - Globe Life Park in Arlington, Arlington, TX
The Astros start off their season in Arlington to play the Rangers in an all-Texas opening day game. Houston is coming off of their first ever World Series in one of the better ones played in the last 20 years. Their batters were unbelievable and they bring back Jose Altuve, George Springer, and Carlos Correa from a team that won 101 games and the World Series. They are listed by most lines makers as the favorites, along with the Dodgers, to win the World Series in 2018. The Rangers, meanwhile, missed out on the playoffs last year and finished 78-84 which was a tie for third place in the AL West. The Rangers have great hitting still, but they will need their starting rotation to be better than expected. A lot is needed from Cole Hamels, who goes against Justin Verlander on Thursday.
