Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Predictions & Tips

Texas are tipped to win tonight's series-opening matchup.

Neither team is in good form right now, but the Rangers have made the better start to the 2024 season.

  • Texas Rangers have won 7 of the last 9 meetings
  • Texas have won each of their last 5 visits to Houston
  • Texas Rangers are 2-1 on the road this season
  • The Over has cashed in 7 of the last 10 meetings

Head To Head

  • The regular season series is tied 2-2
  • Houston Astros won 10-5 when the two teams last met on April 8

Texas Rangers Form

Texas enter this matchup looking to get back on track after losing for the fourth time in five games last night.

The Rangers opened the season with back-to-back home wins over the Chicago Cubs, winning 4-3 and 11-2 before dropping the final meeting, 9-5.

They then went out on the road for the first time and sandwiched a 5-2 defeat at Tampa Bay with 9-3 and 4-1 wins over the Rays.

Texas returned home after that and made a flying start to the series with Houston, winning the first two meetings 10-2 and 7-2.

The Rangers lost the next two meetings though, 3-1 and 10-5, and then sandwiched a 6-2 win over Oakland with 4-3 and 1-0 defeats.

Houston Astros Form

Houston come into tonight's game having just been swept in a three-game series in Kansas City.

The Astros made a miserable start to the season as they were swept at home by the New York Yankees, losing 5-4, 7-1, 5-3 and 4-3.

They finally got off the mark with a 10-0 win over Toronto, and then bounced back from a 2-1 defeat with an 8-0 shutout of the Blue Jays.

Houston failed to build on that win as they lost 10-2 and 7-2 at Texas, but they did rebound to split the series with 3-1 and 10-5 victories.

The Astros failed to keep that winning run going in Kansas City though, as they lost 4-3, 11-2 and 13-3 to the Royals.

Verdict

Both teams are in rough form, but Texas have made the better start to the season and they have had Houston's number in recent times, especially on the road.
