The Texas Rangers will look to snap their losing streak and pull off a pretty big upset this Saturday, as they take on the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
Despite the Texas Rangers not getting the results recently, they have managed to stay competitive and that was especially true in that last series with the Mariners. They got swept by the Mariners, but were never beaten by more then two runs and that has been a theme for them this year, so they do have it in them to cause an upset of this size being installed as +280 underdogs.
The one thing the Texas Rangers can be happy about is that they found Adolis Garcia who looks to be a guy with a serious future, as he has already hit 27 home runs and it seems like he is constantly improving, so it will be interesting to see where he ends up long term.
The Rangers starting pitcher Jordan Lyles is a big reason why the Red Sox are so heavily favored here, as he has allowed 17 runs in his last 3 outings and the matchup does not get much tough then this one against the Red Sox at Fenway.
Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox will be hungry to sweep this series, as they are coming off of getting swept by their AL East rivals the New York Yankees which had some pretty serous implications for the AL East and Wild Card race.
This Red Sox batting lineup should have an absolute field day with Lyles here and the advantage is even bigger for the left handed hitters like Rafael Devers who are unlikely to find a much better matchup all year long.
They will call on Eduardo Rodriguez to put in a quality start here and he probably should be able to do just that, as he comes into this game on fire only giving up 3 earned runs in his last 3 starts.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
I am usually not a big fan of the ole -2.5 runline bets, but everything about this game tells me that the Red Sox are going to absolutely wallop the Texas Rangers from the pitching matchup to the batting lineups.
The Red Sox will also be full of motivation after what happened against the New York Yankees and they also get this one at home, so I see them having a big day here and they really should be able to cover this big spread with some ease.
