All Athletics-Rangers betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

- To Hit a Home Run: Khris Davis (+200) – Davis is one of the best power hitters in baseball, having hit at least 42 home runs in each of the past three seasons. He already has 12 home runs in 2019, despite missing 14 games this season. Davis has hit six of his 12 home runs against left-handed pitchers this season, despite having had 84 more at-bats against right-handed pitching. That should come in handy against Texas Rangers' lefty Joe Palumbo.
