Texas Rangers at Miami Marlins Prediction

Heading into Thursday’s Interleague matchup between Texas and Miami, the Marlins have the slight edge on the moneyline. Even though Pablo Lopez factored into just 1 decision, Miami has won 3 straight games with the right-hander on the mound. Over this stretch, he has given up just 4 earned runs. I see the Marlins picking up the win coming off the All-Star Break.
