Slugger Aaron Judge takes another shot at breaking the American League single-season home run record when he and the New York Yankees (97-61) take on the Texas Rangers (66-92) on Monday. Since tying Roger Maris' AL record with his 61st home run on Wednesday, Judge has gone homerless in three straight games. On Monday, he and the Yankees face the Rangers' Martin Perez (12-7, 2.93). New York is a -155 favorite in the latest Yankees vs. Rangers odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while Texas is a +130 underdog. The over/under for runs scored is eight.

First pitch is set for 7:05 p.m. ET from Choctaw Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The game is one of 15 on the MLB schedule for Monday. Elsewhere in the majors, the Braves can clinch the NL East title with a win over the Marlins, and the Phillies can clinch their first postseason berth since 2011 with a victory against the Astros.
