The Blue Jays are 4-9 in their last 13 during game 4 of a series and 5-0 in Prices last 5 starts. The Orioles are 2-5 in their last 7 Thursday games and 1-6 in their last 7 during game 4 of a series. The under is 12-5-1 in the last 18 meetings in Baltimore.
While the Blue Jays are gearing up for the postseason and may be a little unfocused on the average O's, it's still David Price on the mound. Hard to bet against one of the better pitchers in baseball and a team that's won seven of their last 10 on the road.
