I read a post several days ago that said you could find a prime between
n and n+Log[n]^2.
( there also seems to be a NextPrime[] function in Mathematica that I 
wasn't aware of)
I tried the average of the two and it works very well
 such that there are only a few primes that don't fit that pattern:

(* Primes that aren't at the average of n and n+Log[n]^2 *)
Respectfully, Roger L. Bagula
