HOUSTON (-115)

David Price hasn't gotten into a groove since being activated off the DL and I'm looking for that to continue tonight as the Astros try to win the series. Joe Musgrove comes off his best back-to-back outings of the season, allowing just two runs combined. Boston is averaging only 3.3 runs a game over its last seven, which is about what Houston allows at home. The Red Sox have scored three runs total in the first two games of this series. I like Houston in this spot.

BOSTON (100)

David Price and the Boston Red Sox have a tough test, as they take on the Houston Astros in the final game of the three game series. This is the Sunday Night Baseball Game of the Week. Price is 1-1 on the season with a 5.09 earned run average. He will take on a Houston team that is one of the best offensive teams in the game of baseball. Joe Musgrove will throw for the Houston Astros, and lead the team with the best record in all of Major League Baseball. Look for Price to throw well in this game, and slow down a pretty talented Houston team. In the end, Boston wins the Sunday Night Baseball game.

BOSTON (100)

Both starters come in with injury concerns;  AJ Hinch admits that Joe Musgrove isn't 100% (shoulder), but banged-up Houston rotation requires his presence. David Price has had control issues due to a blister, but he's throwing with pretty fair velocity, and he fanned twelve Astros last time he faced them.

Boston @ Houston | 06/18 | 2:10 PM CST

UNDER 9.5 (-120)

Boston is one of the worst home run hitting teams in baseball, 5-0 under against the AL West. Both teams have strong bullpen arms and the Red Sox have lefty David Price starting, with 21 Ks in 23 innings and batters hitting .200 off him. Houston has strong defense in the field, 33-16-6 under the total at home against a team with a winning record. Starter Joe Musgrove has allowed 2 runs his last two starts (11+ innings).

UNDER 9 (-105)

Boston/Houston are a couple of the highest-scoring teams in the league and both of these starting pitchers have struggled at times this year. That’s why this total is as large as it is. However, I feel that the value swings the other way on Sunday night as I look for David Price and Joe Musgrove to battle into the latter innings. Price (1-1, 5.29 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) gave up three runs off four hits and four walks while striking out six over six innings in a no-decision against Phildalelphia on Tuesday. Price is still working his way back from his elbow injury, but his velocity is actually up slightly from last season. Musgrove (4-4, 4.89 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) started the year slowly, but has steadily been progressing. Like his counterpart, he also returned from injury in his last start and he’d go on to give up two runs off five hits and one walk over 4.1 innings (Musgrove has now posted a quality start in four of his last five outings). Both pitchers have been trending in the correct direction, so recent performance suggests a pitchers duel on Sunday night. Consider the under.

Boston @ Houston | 06/18 | 2:10 PM CST

UNDER 9.5 (-120)

I'm projecting 7.8 runs for Red Sox-Astros on Sunday Night Baseball, indicating a strong Under play. The Under is cashing in 72 percent of my simulations. With Joe Musgrove pitching well and David Price more than capable of turning in a gem, I'm going Under.
