Red Sox vs Rangers MLB Pick 6-24-2016

David Price toes the rubber tonight in Arlington for the Red Sox as they take on the red hot Texas Rangers.  The Rangers have won 3 straight vs Boston and 5 of 6 dating back to last season.  This will be the first matchup of the 2016 season.

Texas will send Nick Martinez to the mound for a spot start as they continue to deal with a barrage of injuries to the rotation.  Martinez has made one start and two relief appearances at the Major League level this season, making the start on June 18th, allowing three runs in 4.1 innings to the Cardinals finishing with the no decision. The young right hander has conceded a total of four runs on ten hits in seven innings pitched this season. He made one start against the Red Sox last season and performed well, allowing just two runs in seven innings.

David Price started the season looking every bit worth the price tag the Red Sox paid going (7-1) with 3 no decisions in his first 11 starts.  June hasn’t been so kind as he is (1-3) over his 4 starts this month.  However, he is coming off a solid performance vs the Mariners notching the win after pitching 8 innings, giving up 1 ER and 7 stikeouts.  Price already has 4 games this season where he recorded 10+ strikeouts.

Big Papi is having an incredible season, belting 18 home runs and is second in the AL with 60 RBI’s on the season. The Red Sox offense is now averaging a league leading 5.61 runs per game, and they are hitting a terrific .289 as a team.

Ian Desmond has been tearing the cover off the ball for the Rangers and continues to produce.  He is 13 for his last 31 at bats with three home runs and four RBI’s in that stretch and is hitting an impressive .363 in the month of June.

The Rangers offense has scored 4+ runs in eight out of their last ten games and are now scoring an average of 4.77 runs per game.  While the Rangers are 1st in the AL West, their achilles heel has been the injuries to the starting pitching.  They hope Martinez can keep them in this game to notch a win vs a very good Red Sox team.

Why My Money is on the Total

Both of these teams can hit and score runs and rank among the best in the majors.  However, I am looking at this game going Under 9 runs and here is why:

Under is 5-0 in Prices last 5 starts overall.
Under is 5-0-1 in Prices last 6 starts vs. a team with a winning record.
Under is 5-0 in Prices last 5 starts overall.
Under is 5-0-1 in Prices last 6 starts vs. a team with a winning record.
Under is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Under is 11-2-1 in the last 14 meetings in Texas.

 

Pick: Under 9
