White Sox Looking for Second Straight Win over Rangers
If you are looking for MLB games to bet online then you will find plenty of options on Saturday, August 6. The Texas Rangers play host to the Chicago White Sox in one such game, and these teams have split the first two games of the series.
Chicago comes into this game with a record of 54-52, but the White Sox were supposed to be much better. The White Sox can’t seem to make a run, and they are running out of time.
Texas is another team that can’t seem to figure things out as they are 47-59. The Rangers spent a ton of money in the offseason but those moves just didn’t pay off.
The MLB lines at BetUS Sportsbook have the Chicago White Sox as slim moneyline favorites at -120 over the Texas Rangers.
White Sox Searching for More Power
Despite being in the playoff hunt in the AL Central Division, the Chicago White Sox have been a big disappointment. General manager Rick Hahn wasn’t afraid to call his team out earlier this week either, saying, “Anyone out there who is feeling a level of frustration or disappointment, I’m there with you.”
Chicago has blasted 92 home runs this season and injuries have played a role. Jose Abreu continues to be a consistent part of this offense as he leads the way with 14 home runs and 55 RBIs.
Michael Kopech is set to make this start, and he is another player that has to turn things around. Kopech is 4-7 but does sport a solid 3.12 ERA.
The Texas Rangers have started to hit the ball better up and down the lineup, but they just aren’t consistent enough. Texas is hitting just .240 as a team.
Corey Seager has done his part for the Rangers with 24 home runs. Texas is facing a tough pitcher in this matchup and stringing hits together could become an issue.
Dane Dunning will be on the mound and he has struggled. Dunning is 1-6 with a 4.30 ERA.

The latest scores and odds for this head-to-head matchup won’t really help as these teams have continued to trade off wins.

White Sox vs Rangers Prediction
There hasn’t been any separation between these teams yet in this series, but that’s going to change in this game. Chicago has a pretty clear edge on the mound to start the game, and that should factor into your MLB picks.
Both of these teams have been underwhelming this season, but the White Sox have been the better overall team. Texas just doesn’t get enough consistent offense, and Kopech is going to set the tone for Chicago in this game.
Take the Chicago White Sox -1½ as they pick up a second straight win over the Rangers in Arlington.
