Texas Rangers vs Colorado Rockies. MLB’s pick for the game will go to the Texas Rangers +130. Allard allowed only a single run in 9 innings this season, while Gray allowed 8 runs in 3.1 innings in his last start.

The Rangers have Colorado’s number with a 10-4 record in their last 14 games, and are playing great in Coors Field winning their last 6 games when playing in Denver. The Rangers will get the win and the sweep in this series to a predicted score of 8-5.
