Arizona Diamondbacks vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
This is not a very exciting series at all. It features 2 of the worst teams in baseball. I look for the Rangers to snap their losing streak in this one.
The Rangers are the better team here and they should be able to show that against this Diamondbacks squad. I have very little confidence backing the Snakes here.
I am not sure if Dane Dunning will be great here, but I look for him to do enough to get a win and for Texas to hit around Widener.
I will take the Rangers on the moneyline here.
