Money Line: -116.00 Texas (Home)
Texas is starting Perez who has been roughed up in 3 of his last 5 starts allowing 4, 6 and 7 earned runs. His other two starts were 7 inning 2 earned run games.
St. Louis has the 10th best OPS against left handed pitchers with a .773 OPS and Texas has the 3rd best OPS against right handed pitchers with a .785 OPS.
I am taking Texas to win this game and for it to go OVER 9.5 as both of these pitchers have been getting hit and both of these offenses are strong. I like Texas to win as they find ways to win and are the better overall team.
Pick: Texas Rangers ML
