An American League West showdown in the state of Texas highlights the Friday night Major League Baseball Calendar when the Houston Astros visit the Texas Rangers. The current line on top sportsbooks has Houston slightly favored at -125, Texas at +105 and the over/under run total on 10.

Entering the game, Houston on the season is 71-43 overall and 38-18 on the road. The Astros are 3-7 in their last 10 games played. Texas on the season is 54-59 overall and 28-26 at home. The Rangers are 4-6 in their last 10 games played.
