Why Bet on the Rangers?

The Texas Rangers dressed this season to think about qualifying for the postseason, but not many were betting on them making it to the World Series, especially after losing the American League West Division on the last day of the regular phase to the Houston Astros.

But in the wild card they eliminated the Tampa Bay Rays, in the divisional series they took out the Baltimore Orioles, and in the championship series they beat the Astros in seven games, winning all of the games away from home. Bruce Bochy’s team took out the reigning World Series champion.

And to achieve such a feat they needed several players on fire, but especially Adolis Garcia, who was the MVP of the title game in the American League. The 30-year-old is hitting .327 in the postseason, with 20 RBIs and seven home runs. What’s more, in the last game he towed five teammates, gave up four hits, and stole a base.

Another player to highlight is Corey Seager, who averages .333, with six RBIs and three home runs.

Nathan Eovaldi has won in all his postseason starts and against the Astros he had a great performance, leaving his ERA at 3.65 with 12.1 innings pitched. Precisely, Eovaldi (4-0) is Bochy’s choice.

Why Bet on the Diamondbacks?

Like the Rangers, the Arizona Diamondbacks are massive underdogs, as not even their die-hard fans tipped them to be in the World Series. However, along the way, they left the Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers, and Philadelphia Phillies.

With Philadelphia, they were 3-2 down in the series for the National League championship, but away from home, they got the necessary wins to try to get their second ring in history.

Their most important player to achieve the feat was Ketel Marte, a historic player of the franchise who was on fire with his bat and hit .387, with four doubles, a triple, and three RBIs against the Phillies.

Also noteworthy is Corbin Carroll’s role throughout the postseason, as he has hit .295, with two home runs and six RBIs.

Finally, we must talk about their star pitcher, Brandon Pfaadt, who has no wins or losses but manages an effectiveness of 2.70. In addition, relievers Kevin Ginkel and Paul Sewald are guaranteed garments for the late innings.

However, selected to make the opening pitch in game one is Zac Gallen, who has two wins and two losses in the postseason.

Final Betting Analysis: Rangers vs. Diamondbacks

The numbers at have Rangers as favorites, as the Moneyline for them shows -156. Meanwhile, the Dbacks have +145.

There is not much planning time and the action starts in Texas, but if there is one thing these two teams have, it is that they are better as visitors, so the win will go to the National League champions, the Diamondbacks.

Go for a win in the Dbacks’ Moneyline. If you bet $100 at +145, you will gain $145 for a total payout of $245.
