New York Yankees at Texas Rangers Prediction

Wednesday’s matchup between New York and Texas presents a good opportunity to close out the regular season by grabbing the Rangers to pull off the upset. Although Glenn Otto’s overall numbers are far from excellent, he has pitched well of late. In addition, the only thing on the line for New York is the hope of Aaron Judge hitting his 62nd home run. I like Texas on the moneyline.
