Minnesota (Gibson) at Boston (Price) -200 O/U 10
Kyle Gibson is one of many fringe MLB starting pitchers that has routinely been smacked around this season. He currently owns a 6.23 ERA while allowing 86 hits and 33 walks over 65 innings. Gibson has also surrendered four home runs in his last three starts which is concerning with tonight's outing at Fenway Park. And his inability to go deep into games means the Twins bullpen should get some work tonight; a group that has a 4.90 ERA. This all provies a great chance for the Red Sox to bounce back from last night's 4-1 loss. On the other side, David Price has yet to find his footing since returning to the rotation. Price has allowed three or more runs in five of six starts this season and has failed to go beyond 6 innings in all but one of those games. It’s also worth noting that Price got crushed in his most recent start against the Twins last year wherehe allowed five runs on 11 hits in just 5.2 innings of work right here at Fenway. Not a single Boston starter has pitched more than 6 innings in five consecutive days/games which means the Red Sox pen, for as solid as they’ve been, is a little bit overworked right now and that may open the door for Minnesota to tack on some runs in the latter stages of tonight’s game. The over is 9-4-1 in the last 14 meetings between these two teams and I expect this game to reach double digits.
