Texas Rangers 2024 World Series Odds

Texas Rangers MLB Betting

A day that Texas Ranger fans thought they would never live to see finally arrived in the 2023 World Series. Texas beat their intra-state and American League West Division arch-rival Houston Astros for its first World Series championship since arriving in the Dallas and Fort Worth Metroplex in 1972. So spare Ranger fans criticism if they are basking in the glow of glory and not fired up about having to do it all over again in 2023.

Texas Rangers MLB Betting Odds

In 2023, the Texas Rangers had a record of 90-72 and finished 2nd in the American League West Division. Offensively, Texas ranked 3rd for runs scored, 2nd for batting average, 3rd for OPS, 3rd for home runs, and 27th for stolen bases. Defensively, Texas ranked 18th for earned run average, 12th for WHIP, 17th for strikeouts, 10th for quality starts, 2nd for fewest errors, and 24th for bullpen ERA. Texas was -5 on the moneyline and +841 on the run line.

Last season, the betting public quickly picked up on the ability of the Rangers. Thus, Texas quickly lost value as a favorite, especially at home. Texas did provide solid value on the run line and a nice profit for those willing to lay the run and a half.

Key offseason acquisitions include RHP Kirby Yates, RHP David Robertson, and RHP Tyler Mahle.

Key offseason departures include C/DH Mitch Garver, LHP Jordan Montgomery, LHP Will Smith, RHP Chris Stratton, and LHP Aroldis Chapman.

There’s still a chance that the Rangers can get that front-end starting pitcher, and it might even be Jordan Montgomery, who helped them win their first World Series. Even if they get Jacob deGrom, Max Scherzer, and/or Tyler Mahle back before the end of the season, they’ll have a pretty basic rotation until then. Comparisons show little difference between the projections for the Rangers’ rotation with the A’s rotation.

The AL West won’t allow for a lot of grace when it comes to winning the division, and the competition should be fierce for wild-card spots, too. Just getting by with the incumbent starting pitchers seems like a great way to fall behind in one or both races. David Robertson and Kirby Yates might help shorten games, but they are a couple of relievers in their late 30s with a recent history of injuries.

However, the Rangers can score in bunches. That will give them a chance. But until they come away with Blake Snell or Montgomery, it’s hard not to be bored with their sleepy offseason.

Texas ranks 7th for MLB payroll.
