Reds (Cueto) vs. Rays (Price) UNDER 7 RUNS (Pick #2 for the day)

Johnny Cueto has a 1.63 ERA for the season and a 1.32 ERA during his road starts. He has allowed 3 runs or less in all 9 of his starts this season and has thrown 3 shutouts on the road. He also has an extremely low ERA of 0.43 in his last 3 starts. He has become the ace of the Reds pitching staff this season. He is facing a Rays team that struggles to score runs at home, evident by being shutout yesterday against the Reds. David Price has a good 3.51 ERA this season and a slightly lower 3.40 ERA during his home starts. He has allowed 3 runs or less in 7 out of his last 10 starts overall and has thrown 2 home shutouts in his last 10 starts vs. the Blue Jays and Indians. It seems he struggles at home vs. the very tough lineups of the American League. He gave up 3 runs in just 5 innings vs. the Red Sox, 3 runs in 8 innings vs. the Rangers and 5 runs in 5 innings vs. the Yankees. But then against what I would call the "average" lineups, he did very well. Allowing 0 earned runs in 8.2 innings vs. the Blue Jays and 0 earned vs. the Indians over 7 innings. I would consider the Rays a more "average" lineup, so I expect Price to have a strong outing tonight. BET UNDER 7
