Free NFL Pick
The Rangers have won 4 of their last 5 games with Yovani Gallardo getting the start and in his last outing he went 5 innings and gave up 3 earned runs in a 5-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays. The Rangers are 0-5 in Gallardo’s last 5 starts vs. a team with a losing record. Randy Wolf makes his first start of the season in a Tigers uniform, as he was recently acquired from the Miami Marlins. In his last 2 starts he has given up a combined 9 earned runs.
Wolf has been tagged up in his last 2 starts and that does not bode well facing a solid Rangers’ offense. Take Texas in this one even though they have only scored 2 runs in the 2 games of this series.
