They might be able to find some success on Monday, but it will not be an easy task for them to take down the Houston Astros. The Rangers have struggled at 28-31 while Houston is 37-23.

Astros Coming Off Disappointing Series

With a team that has found as much success as the Houston Astros throughout the past few years, anytime that they do not win a series is going to be looked at as a disappointment. The Astros ended up losing a series to the Miami Marlins over the weekend.

With Taylor Hearn getting the start for the Texas Rangers, it could be a difficult time for the Houston Astros to win this game. He has held hitters in the current Houston Astros lineup to just a .226 batting average.

Will Texas Eventually Figure it Out?

After all of the offseason moves that the Texas Rangers made, everybody expected that they were going to be one of the better teams in the American League. They went out and acquired Marcus Semien and Corey Seager, showing their fan base that the front office wasn’t afraid to spend to try to get this team back to a championship-caliber club.

These moves have not paid off thus far and they haven’t exactly played great baseball. They have only won four of their last 10 games but come in off back-to-back wins.

Cristian Javier of the Houston Astros has been able to find plenty of success throughout his career against the Texas Rangers. He has held hitters in the current Rangers lineup to a .219 batting average and has a strikeout percentage of nearly 30%.

The Houston Astros have been a much more consistent team and that’s where we have to put our money. Considering how well Javier has also looked against the current Texas Rangers lineup, this feels like a great bet.
