0.5 unit on Kansas City +123 (moneyline) (risk 0.5 to return 1.12) RESULT: WIN
David Price is 0-7 as a starter in his postseason career, but is still the favorite on the road in this matchup. Price pitched six shutout innings in game two before getting knocked out in the seventh when manager John Gibbons left him in the game too long. Price has allowed 13 runs and 17 hits in 16 2/3 innings in the 2015 playoffs. Yordano Ventura is 7-5 with a 3.84 ERA at home this season. The right-hander allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings in game two which the Royals won 6-3. Kansas City is 7-1 its last seven games against left-handed starters and 7-2 in Ventura's last nine home starts. Toronto hitters are batting just .217 against Ventura. Take the huge value with the home underdog and play the Royals.
