Tuley’s Take on the only MLB game of the night . . .
Major League Baseball returns tonight with a standalone prime time on ESPN (8:05 p.m. ET) with the Houston Astros visiting the Texas Rangers in hitter-friendly Globe Life Park in Arlington.
After a first-half of offensive explosiveness, I see no reason it won’t continue right off the bat (pun intended), so I’m going with the 1st Inning Yes (that there will be a score in the opening inning) wager.
Both teams are a solid 53.3% with the 1st Inning Yes this season, so that certainly adds to the confidence that at least one of the offenses will break through.
As you know, to beat the vig at -110, you need to hit 52.3 percent. This is written before seeing the vig attached to the Yes. Hopefully it’s not too much more than -110 or -120 and with Framber Valdez going for the Astros and especially Lance Lynn for the Rangers, the vig will be relatively low.
