Arizona Diamondbacks at Texas Rangers Preview & Picks

Texas are tipped to double their lead in the World Series.

The Rangers will be raring to go after that fightback in Game 1, and starting pitcher Jordan Montgomery has been in good form in the playoffs so far.

  • Texas Rangers are 9-4 in their last 123 home games
  • Texas Rangers are 21-2-0 ATS in their last 23 victories
  • The Over has cashed in 6 of Texas’ last 7 games (1 Push)
  • The Over has hit in 4 of the last 5 meetings between the teams

Head To Head

  • Arizona Diamondbacks won the regular season series 3-1
  • Texas Rangers lead 1-0 in the MLB World Series
  • Texas Rangers won 6-5 when the two teams last met on October 27

Arizona Diamondbacks Form

Arizona go into Game 2 of the World Series looking to rebound after blowing the lead to lose the series opener, 6-5.

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.

They then took a 5-3 lead in the opening game against Texas on the road, only to give up a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth and then lose to a solo shot in the 11th.

Texas Rangers Form

Texas will look to pick up from where they left off after taking a 1-0 lead in the 2023 World Series.

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 a World Series berth with an 11-4 victory. 

They then needed some late heroics to turn things around in Game 1 against Arizona, rescuing a 6-5 win with a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth and a solo shot in the 11th to steal it.

Verdict

Texas will be full of confidence after their Game 1 fightback, while Arizona may be reeling after letting that one slip through their fingers.

Momentum is with the Rangers and Jordan Montgomery is backed to set them on their way to another win.
