Texas Rangers vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

I considered the Colorado Rockies and the plus money because Andrew Heaney hasn't been good this season, but there's not enough bang for my buck. Also, let's not act like Ryan Feltner is lighting the world on fire with his ERA over 5 and an allowed batting average over .300 at home this season. Rough pitching matchup, but if forced to pick, I'm going to side with the better team and the reasonable price. Give me the Rangers.
