There is a huge spike for Wednesday’s game; the only reason the average for this series is above $20. Just don’t look to the pitching matchup for your answer. Wednesday is Yasiel Puig bobble head night, a promotion that has led to an average price of $51.05. Granted Dodgers starter Josh Beckett has been good to start the season for the Dodgers, but that’s mostly been luck. His 4.19 FIP is right in line with the numbers he’s put up the last several seasons. Meanwhile at 22, Jacob Turner has had a tough start to the season with a 6.75 ERA. While his BABIP of .339 and HR/FB ratio of 27.3% shows he’s been unlucky, even league average numbers wouldn’t lead to a pretty ERA.
