Texas Rangers vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

The Texas Rangers are showing signs over these last couple of weeks of returning to the team we saw last season. Jon Gray has also been sharp this year and has done some of his best work on the road, where he's allowing a .189 batting average. Austin Gomber has held his own as well, but it doesn't matter as much when you consider the Rockies as a team aren't good. The Rockies have just 9 wins on the season, the offense doesn't show up most nights, and they have yet to win back to back games this season. I have no choice but to take the Rangers, and I'll lay the RL to shave down the juice.
