Boston Red Sox Fantasy Spin

Xander Bogaerts went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and an RBI double in Sunday's win over the Astros. Bogaerts tied up the contest at 3-3 with an RBI single in the fifth inning and put the Red Sox ahead 4-3 with an RBI double in the seventh. That two-bagger was his 13th of the season. For the campaign as a whole, Bogaerts is slashing a respectable .275/.374/.479 with seven home runs, 28 RBI and 31 runs scored over the course of 44 games played. He has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games.

Toronto Blue Jays Fantasy Spin

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead, two-run homer to lift the Blue Jays to a 5-2 win over the White Sox on Sunday. Guerrero Jr. launched a 395-foot blast -- his fourth round-tripper of the season -- off White Sox’ reliever Kelvin Herrera in the eighth inning to put the Blue Jays ahead 3-1. The 20-year-old burgeoning superstar got off to a brutal start to open his big-league career, but he’s heated up over the last week, leaving the yard four times in his last six games. He owns a .235/.325/.441 triple-slash line across 77 plate appearances. It's only a matter of time before his fantasy stock skyrockets.

The under is 6-2 in the David Price’s last eight starts against the Blue Jays and is 7-1-1 in his last nine outings overall. The under is also 4-1-1 in Price’s last six road starts and has cashed in four-straight when he faces opponents from the American League East.

The Pick: Red Sox/Blue Jays UNDER 9.5
