Kansas City +107 over TEXAS

8:05 PM EST. The Rangers were in action yesterday where they dropped a 5-1 decision to the A's. With that loss, Texas is now just 2-8 over its last 10 games. Like his team, Dane Dunning (RHP - TEX) is going through a rough stretch, with a 6.65 ERA and 1.94 WHIP over his last five starts, but his xERA during that period is 4.22, as a 43% hit rate and 22% HR/F have been partly to blame. Dunning is a 26-year old former top prospect that is holding his own despite the added challenge of returning from Tommy John surgery. However, even if Dunning is at his best, he's not likely to see the sixth inning. With the bullpens factoring in earlier and more often, it's much harder to spot a price with these bad teams. Who wants to be holding a ticket on Texas with the gas can parade on deck?

Mike Minor (LHP - KC) has succeeded lately by reducing his walks over his last six games started, leading to strong surface stats (3.62 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) and skills (5% BB%, 27% K%, 3.84 xERA) during that period. The Rangers have a bottom-ten offense any way you want to slice this one: overall (.678 OPS), at home (.680), and vs. LHP (.661). On the season, Minor sports an xERA (3.99) that is .49 points lower than his surface number. All the value here is on the dog.
