If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Sunday when the Boston Red Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays meet at Tropicana Field.

David Price will be the starting pitcher for the Red Sox on this day. Left hander Price is 4-2 this season with a 4.02 ERA.

Price’s opponent in this one will be Chris Archer. The Rays right hander has a 4.02 ERA to go along with a 7-5 record this season.

Price struck out a season-high nine while allowing six hits over six scoreless innings Tuesday at Texas for his third win in four starts. The 31-year-old Vanderbilt product, who owns a 2.88 career ERA at Tropicana Field, has given up three or fewer runs in seven of his eight starts in 2017. Trevor Plouffe is 9-for-25 with two doubles versus Price, who is 3-3 with a 4.20 ERA in seven career games against Tampa Bay.

Archer has completed exactly six innings in five straight starts after permitting three runs to beat the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday and improving to 3-1 in that stretch. The 28-year-old, who was added to the All-Star team Friday, is second in the AL with 139 strikeouts over 116 1/3 innings. Mookie Betts is 10-for-26 against Archer, who limited the Red Sox to one run, six hits and two walks over 5 2/3 innings in a win on April 14.

Oddsmakers currently have the Red Sox listed as 105-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

The Tampa Bay Rays have a chance to take three of four from the visiting Boston Red Sox and match their high-water mark of the season when the American League East rivals complete their four-game series on Sunday afternoon. The Rays received a masterful pitching performance from Alex Cobb on Saturday before holding on for a 1-0 victory and can move four games over .500 with a win in the final contest before the All-Star break.

Tampa Bay leadoff batter Mallex Smith recorded a pair of hits Saturday to extend his hitting streak to seven games (12-for-29) and teammate Brad Miller is 3-for-5 with two walks since returning from a month-long stint on the disabled list. Rays All-Star Chris Archer will try to match Cobb’s effort on Sunday despite a 2-11 lifetime record against the Red Sox and faces his former mentor David Price, who won the AL Cy Young with Tampa Bay in 2012. Boston leads the New York Yankees by 3 ½ games and the third-place Rays by 4 ½ after dropping three of its last four contests, managing just three hits in Saturday’s setback. Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts (hand) returned to the lineup Saturday after a one-game absence and went 1-for-3.

Tampa Bay won its last outing, a 1-0 result against the Red Sox on July 08. Bettors who backed the Rays at 103 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (1) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Boston was a 1-0 loser on the road against the Rays. Bettors on Tampa Bay at 103 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (1) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
