Prediction:

The prediction for this game is for the Texas Rangers to cover the +1.5 run line. Here’s why:

Despite the Dodgers' strong overall performance this season, Michael Grove's inconsistency on the mound (4.72 ERA) provides an opportunity for the Rangers to keep the game close. Michael Lorenzen's solid performance for Texas (3.05 ERA) suggests he can keep the game competitive.

The Rangers have shown they can compete with stronger teams, and their lineup, featuring players like Corey Seager and Adolis Garcia, has the potential to generate runs against Grove. Additionally, the Rangers' road performance, while not stellar, indicates they can stay competitive in away games.

Given these factors, the Rangers are well-positioned to cover the +1.5 run line in a game that is expected to be closer than the odds suggest.

Pick: Texas Rangers +1.5
