Texas are tipped to draw first blood in the World Series.

The Rangers’ offense has been firing in the playoffs, while their top two pitchers have been in impressive form.

  • Texas Rangers are 8-4 in their last 12 home games
  • Texas Rangers are 18-6-0 ATL in their last 24 games
  • Texas Rangers are 21-1-0 ATS in their last 22 victories
  • The Over has cashed in 5 of Texas’ last 6 games (1 Push)
  • The Over hit in 3 of the 4 regular season meetings

Head To Head

  • Arizona Diamondbacks won the regular season series 3-1
  • Arizona Diamondbacks won 6-3 when the two teams last met on August 22

Arizona Diamondbacks Form

Arizona enter Game 1 of the World Series on the back of two huge road wins that got them here.

The Diamondbacks ended the regular season with an 84-78 record and little was expected from them in the postseason.

However, they caused an immediate upset in the Wild Card round as they swept Milwaukee on the road, courtesy of 6-3 and 5-2 wins.

Arizona then topped that with a sensational sweep of a Los Angeles Dodgers team who had finished 16 games ahead of them in the NL West.

The Diamondbacks stunned the Dodgers with 11-2 and 4-2 wins on the road, before returning home to clinch with a 4-2 victory.

Their postseason run looked to be in serious trouble when they suffered 5-3 and 10-0 defeats in the first two games of the National League Championship Series.

Arizona rebounded to win 2-1 and 6-5 at home, but their 6-1 defeat in Game 5 left them on the brink of an exit when they headed back to Philadelphia.

The Diamondbacks rallied though, securing a place in the 2023 World Series with 5-1 and 4-2 wins over the Phillies.

Texas Rangers Form

Like their opponents, Texas also come into the opening game of the 2023 World Series on the back of two huge road wins.

The Rangers finished the regular season with a 90-72 record and had to settle for second place in the division after losing the head-to-head with Houston.

That meant they faced a trip to Tampa Bay in the Wild Card round, but they made light work of the Rays with 4-0 and 7-1 wins.

Texas then followed that up with a three-game sweep of a Baltimore team that had racked up over 100 regular season wins.

The Rangers put together 3-2 and 11-8 victories on the road, and then returned home to clinch with a 7-1 victory.

They were on a roll and this point and took early control of the American League Championship Series when they recorded 2-0 and 5-4 wins in Houston.

Texas failed to keep their streak going at home though, suffering 8-5, 10-3 and 5-4 defeats that meant they had to go back to Houston and win back-to-back games to advance.

The Rangers did just that though, levelling up the series with a 9-2 win, before clinching with an 11-4 victory. 

Verdict

Arizona cannot be taken lightly, but we expect Texas to open up the series with a win and cover.

The Rangers are on a solid run of form at home and they also have a very healthy knack for covering the line when they win.
