1* Free Sharp Play on Blue Jays +160

My money is on Toronto to cash in as a big road dog against the Red Sox on Thursday. Boston is headed into the final series before the All-Star break riding a 9-game winning streak and own the best record in baseball at 65-29. They also have a 3.5-game lead over the Yankees in the AL East. I think it's going to be tough for the Red Sox to stay focused against the Blue Jays, while Toronto is going to give it everything they got in this series. I also think this is a good spot to go against Boston's David Price, who has been a complete train wreck in his last 2 starts. Price has allowed 12 runs on 15 hits in his last 2 starts and the alarming stat is the 6 home runs he's allowed. Note that Price had allowed a total of 10 homers in his previous 16 starts combined. I also like that Toronto has J.A. Happ on the mound, as he's got a strong 2.83 ERA in 7 road starts this season and a 3.11 ERA in 17 career starts against the Red Sox. Bet Toronto +160!

Toronto (Happ) @ Boston (Price) 7:10 PM ET

Game# 961-962

Play On: Over 9.0

When bettors saw this opening total of 9.5, and the 2 scheduled quality left-handed starting pitchers, they salivated in anticipation of a low scoring game. That number has since came down to 9.0 resulting from 78% of individual bets being placed on under the total. It’s never as easy as it seemingly appears to be in sports betting. I firmly believe this qualifies as one of those precise situations.

J.A. Happ has earned a spot in the 2018 MLB All-Star game and his overall pitching line this season certainly warrants that selection. However, Happ has seen each of his last 4 starts go over the total while compiling a large 7.94 ERA during those outings, and he allowed an alarming 6 home runs in 22 2/3 innings pitched throughout that span. Meanwhile, David Price has been awful during his previous 2 starts and gathered a massive 13.50 ERA in doing so. Furthermore, during those previous 2 starts, Price surrendered 6 home runs in just 8.0 innings of work. Bet on this game to go over the total for my Thursday 7/12 MLB free pick of the day.
