Tampa Bay Rays (Price) vs. New York Yankees (Kuroda) 7:05 PM ET
The Rays starter David Price has seen his last three starts all go under the total while posting a stellar 2.22 ERA, a 0.82 WHIP, and a better than 8:1 strikeout to walk ratio. Price has cost his backers dearly over his last six starts. MLB bettors who wagered $100.00 per game on Price in his last 6-starts have lost $570.00, nickel players lost $2850.00, and dime players dropped $5700.00. Price has seen his last 5-starts at Yankee Stadium all go over the total. However, Price is 3-0 in his last 3 team starts at Yankee Stadium while posting a stellar 2.57 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 11:1 strikeout to walk ratio.

The Yankees starter Hideki Kuroda has a somewhat lofty 7.76 ERA over his last 3-starts. Kuroda had seen 5 of his last 6-starts versus the Rays go over the total. As a matter of fact Kuroda has struggled in 6 career starts versus the Rays posting a large 6.94 ERA, and allowed 8 home runs in just 34.0 innings. The right-hander has gone a very profitable 12-3 in his last 15 home team starts versus an opponent with a losing record.

Advantage: David Price
