Texas Rangers at Colorado Rockies Prediction

Heading into Wednesday’s matchup between Texas and Colorado, the Rangers have the slight edge on the moneyline. Even though Martin Perez has been a bright spot for the Rangers all season, it might be tough sledding for him at Coors Field. On the other side, Jose Urena’s statistics look worse than he has actually pitched due to 1 terrible outing. Look for the Rockies to come away with a win at home.
