MLB FREE PICK: Take Texas. According to latest MLB trends, Texas is 6-1 in their last 7 Monday games, 9-2 in their last 11 interleague games, 8-2 in their last 10 interleague games as a favorite of -110 to -150, 12-3 in their last 15 when their opponent allows 5 runs or more in their previous game and 19-7 in their last 26 interleague games as a favorite. Chicago Cubs 7-15 in their last 22 interleague games, 3-7 in their last 10 Monday games, 8-19 in their last 27 home games vs. a right-handed starter, 13-31 in their last 44 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game and are 5-21 in their last 26 home games with the total set at 7.0-8.5.

The Rangers (20-11, 9-7 road, 9-20 O/U) is coming off three straight wins over Boston at home. The Cubs (11-20, 5-10 home, 12-19 O/U) have lost four straight and five of six. The game is a makeup of a contest that was rained out April 17, with the teams splitting their two other meetings last month. Nicholas Tepesch is a 24-year old right-hander with a 3.54 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. He didn't pitcher well against the White Sox in his last start, giving up five runs. Scott Feldman struck out 12 against the lowly San Diego Padres in his last start, but his old team the Rangers are not the Padres. There's a reason Texas leads the American League West. They average 4.68 runs per game, while the Cubs only average 3.6 runs and hit just .236 as a team. The Rangers visit Wrigley Field at 8:0pmET on Monday to take on the Cubs.
