New York Yankees vs. Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers have a shot of advancing past the New York Yankees Friday night in the ALCS Game 6 and we have your betting preview.  This game goes off Friday at 8:05 pm EST on TBS. 

The Yankees are -108 favorites with a total of 9 coming into this one.  Money line action on this game was even this afternoon while the Yankees were getting around 60 percent of the betting action on the run line, which was listed at +145.

New York got their offense back in gear during Game 5 with Alex Rodriguez finally getting a bit hit while Nick Swisher hit a huge home run.  Unfortunatey they will be without Mark Teixeira for the rest of the Playoffs.   He is suffering from a right hamstring injury. 

"My knee swelled up and we thought it was probably because of the mechanics. I was praying that something like this wouldn't happen. Unfortunately it did," Teixeira said yesterday. "I woke up and my right knee was swollen for a couple of days. The doctor said, 'It's probably because you're running on half a foot and you messed up your mechanics.' Like I said, I was just hoping it wouldn't mess up my mechanics so much that I pulled a muscle. Unfortunately, it did."

The Rangers managed to become the first team in postseason history to get 13 hits and score two or fewer points on Wednesday.

Here are some important stats to consider before betting on this game:

New York is 5-1 in their last 6 as a road favorite.

The Yankees are 23-10 in Hughes’ last 33 starts as a favorite.

The Rangers are 1-4 in their last 5 home games. 

The Rangers are 5-11 in Lewis’ last 16 starts.

Stats related to the OVER are not particularly impressive until considering all factors as a whole.

The OVER is 7-1-2 in the Yankees last 10 Playoff road games, 4-1-1 in the last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter and 3-1-3 in the Rangers last 7 home games.  The OVER is also 3-0-2 in Lewis’ last 5 home starts and 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings in Texas.
