It’s time to head to the Lone Star state for a Texas-only 2023 American League Championship Series. For the first time ever, the Texas Rangers and the defending champion Houston Astros are clashing in the ALCS.
While the 2023 AL West-winning Astros, making their seventh straight ALCS appearance, dominated the Rangers during the regular season (winning the head-to-head 9-4), the wild-card winners seem like a different team lately. In the playoffs, the Rangers have swept both the Tampa Bay Rays and Baltimore Orioles. Although the Astros remain the favorite to win the series (see odds below), we expect a tight, close series.
