Rangers Relishing Their Role As Underdogs

Despite dropping the first game of their series to the Boston Red Sox, the Texas Rangers have been a great bet when being pegged as underdogs. The Rangers are 21-8 SU in their past 29 games when closing at plus-money, which will likely occur once again Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • Adrian Beltre is a career .314 hitter against David Price.
  • The Red Sox are just 3-12 in their past 15 games against the runline.
  • The UNDER is 6-1 in the Red Sox’ past seven games that David Price starts.

A trip to the DL is exactly what A.J. Griffin needed. Since returning to the rotation, Griffin has allowed just three runs while striking out 14 across 9.1 innings.  One of those two starts since returning from the DL was against the Red Sox, an outing in which Griffin allowed just four hits and two runs.

It looked as though David Price had turned a corner, but his last two outings suggest the $200-million man may have regressed. Price has surrendered 21 hits and 10 earned runs in his past two starts – including a performance that saw him yanked in the middle of the third inning against the Rangers.
