Streaking Jays in Boston vs David Price

The Toronto Blue Jays will head to Boston tonight and try to cut into the Red Sox’ lead in the American League East. Tonight’s game is full of storylines with the Jays hitting their stride with seven wins in their last eight games, while the Red Sox are 13-3 in their last 16 games at home.

shark bites
  • The Blue Jays are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games with R.A. Dickey as the starting pitcher.
  • The Red Sox are 4-0 SU in their last four games with David Price as the starting pitcher.
  • The total has gone under in six of the Blue Jays' last eight games against the Red Sox.

Former Blue Jay David Price will be tasked with slowing down the Jays. Despite a 7-1 record Price has an unimpressive 5.11 ERA and he likely won’t be looking forward to facing Jose Bautista who has a history of teeing off on the Red Sox’ ace. In 55 career at-bats, Bautista has a .345 batting average and six home runs. Price was mediocre in a start against Toronto last week, allowing two runs while striking out three in 6.1 innings pitched.

The Jays will counter with R.A. Dickey who already has three starts against Boston under his belt on the season. He struggled in those games, allowing 11 runs in 15 innings pitched. The scorching-hot Mookie Betts could be a good target in DFS leagues and prop betting today, as he’s hit .323 vs Dickey in 31 career at-bats.
