Texas Rangers vs LA Dodgers Prediction 

Texas comes into this series still struggling to find consistent offense, while the Dodgers are coming off of a great series win against the Yankees. LA is 21-12 at home this season, while Texas is 15-17 on the road. The Rangers are still in the race for the AL West, but they are lucky the division is not very good this year. LA has a big lead in the NL West and we saw some of their best baseball over the weekend. The Dodgers are starting Paxton, who has been inconsistent in his last few outings. The Rangers are going with Dunning, who has been pretty solid over the last couple of weeks. I don’t trust the Texas offense, especially with how they have looked in the last week, but I am not going to take the risk with Paxton. My Texas Rangers vs LA Dodgers prediction is for the Rangers to get the win.
