Royals plus $1.60 at Red Sox

This is a pure value play taking the hot Royals – winners of eight in a row – at this high of a price against David Price.

Royals pitcher Jason Vargas is having a rough month, but he’s a quality lefty with a 12-4 record and 3.08 ERA on the season.

The Royals have won 22 of the last 29 times Vargas has started, including 4-0 during his past four away outings.

Boston is just .500 versus southpaw starters. They Red Sox also are 1-4 in their last five home games against Kansas City.

Price has a 3.82 ERA on the year. He had been pitching well, however, until his last start when he yielded five earned runs on seven hits and three walks in five innings versus the Angels this past Saturday. The Royals are swinging hot bats averaging 7.8 runs during their eight-game win streak.

The Royals are playing with tremendous confidence right now. They catch the Red Sox in their first game at Fenway Park since returning from a six-game West Coast trip. So it’s not a great situational spot for the Red Sox.
