Texas Rangers vs LA Dodgers Prediction

The LA Dodgers are going to be favored in pretty much every game this season, especially at home. It doesn't hurt to have Walker Buehler on the field, either. However, the Rangers have the offense to match the Dodgers, and getting Jon Gray in the underdog role packs great value. Gray has been terrific this season, and he's consistent regardless of pitching at home or on the road. Give me the Rangers, given we're getting an ace caliber pitcher at a more favorable price.
