MLB FREE PICK: Take Texas. According to latest MLB trends, Texas (9-5, 3-9 O/U) is coming off a 4-2 win over the Cubs in Game One of this series. The Cubs (4-9, 5-8 O/U) have lost three straight and four of the last five. The Rangers send Justin Grimm to the mound in his fourth major league start, filling in for Matt Harrison, who is on the disabled list. Texas has the better overall team, even while the offense has struggled at times. 3B Adrian Beltre may have broken out of a slump with a two-run home run and a double on Tuesday to lead the Rangers to a 4-2 win over the Cubs. Carlos Villanueva has been the Cubs' top starter and did limit the Giants to no runs in 7 1/3 innings, but the Rangers' bats are a lot stronger than the Giants. The Rangers take on the Cubs in Game 2 at Wrigley Field at 8:05pmET on Wednesday night. 

WEDNESDAY MLB FREE PICK: TEXAS RANGERS -104
