San Diego Padres vs Texas Rangers Prediction

I wanted to pull the trigger with the Texas Rangers at home because Nathan Eovaldi has above average stuff, and he can mow down a game when he's on. However, the San Diego Padres have simply been the better team this season, and they've played some of their best ball over the last couple of weeks. In order to take the Rangers, I'd need some bang for my buck, and I'm just not getting it with this line. It's pretty much a pick em spot. Give me the Padres, who appear to be heading in a positive direction.
