Texas Rangers vs Tampa Bay Rays Prediction

The Rays and the cheap price is worth a look considering they’ve been the better team this season, but I can’t get behind Bradley and how he’s looked recently, especially on the road. Current Rangers are also hitting .286 with a .394 OBP in 28 at bats against Bradley. Andrew Heaney has had his issues as well this season, but it’s not quite as bad as Bradley has looked on the road, even with the small sample size. Pick ’em prices, give me the Rangers to beat the Rays again.
