Texas is 2-6 in their last eight interleague games, 4-2 in their last six interleague games as a favorite, and 12-2 in Darvish’s last 14 starts. Miami is 6-2 in their last eight games, 5-2 I games two of a series, and 3-10 in Turner’s last 13 road starts. Miami is 3-5 in their last eight games in Texas.
Darvish and the Rangers are a huge favorite here and rightfully so as I look for them to get the win.
