2024 MLB Odds for the Top Pitchers to Follow in Week 7 | Baseball Betting Analysis for the Regular Season

2024 MLB | 155th edition of professional baseball in United States
Week 7: Monday, May 13th – Sunday, May 19th, 2024

 

Corbin Burnes, Baltimore Orioles

Toronto vs Baltimore | Jose Berrios vs Corbin Burnes

Monday, May 13th, 2024 at 6:35 PM
Field

Burnes is likely to get two starts this week; both starts look like they will be coming at home. He is slated to make the start against Toronto on Monday and then end the week with the Mariners on Sunday. 

Baltimore has been playing great baseball, with a 26-12 record on the season. Burnes has been fun to follow this season with a 3-2 record, and an ERA of 2.83 on the season. We like Burnes to be sharp in this game, and beat the Orioles at home. Take Burnes to have a great week.

Shota Imanaga, Chicago Cubs

Cubs vs Braves | Shota Imanaga vs Reynaldo Lopez

Monday, May 13th, 2024 at 7:20 PM
Field

Certainly not a cakewalk, but Imanaga gets a chance to throw twice this week. The Cubs play at the Braves for three and then come home to host the Pirates for four. Imanaga is unbeaten on the season with a 1.08 earned run average. 

The game at Atlanta is going to be a huge test for the unbeaten starting pitcher. The game against the Pirates at home over the weekend may not prove to be as much. We like Imanaga as one of the top pitchers this week.

Tanner Bibee, Cleveland Guardians

Guardians vs Rangers | Tanner Bibee vs Michael Lorenzen

Monday, May 13th, 2024 at 8:05 PM
Field

Tanner Bibee is a guy that can go out there and blank an opponent. He has struggled a bit this season, but he has the stuff. He will get two starts this week. His first is slated for Monday on the road at the Rangers. Texas is 3 over .500, but have not completely backed their play from a season ago. Bibee then gets the Minnesota Twins at home. Look for him to right the ship a bit as a starting pitcher and have a big week on the mound.

Reds vs Diamondbacks
Week 7 Pick: Tanner Bibee / Guardians | Lines for MLB Games MyBookie Betting Lines for the Games


 

Jordan Montgomery, Arizona Diamondbacks

Guardians vs Rangers | Graham Ashcraft vs Jordan Montgomery

Monday, May 13th, 2024 at 9:40 PM
Field

The lefthander for Arizona is still trying to get settled into his role after a late start to his season. Montgomery has a ballooned ERA on the season but is coming off a strong start against the Reds on May 8th. 

We like Montgomery to stay on track with another strong start here. He then gets another shot this week, as Arizona gets the Detroit Tigers over the weekend. Look for the big lefty to be one of the better-starting pitchers this week.

Reds vs Diamondbacks
Week 7 Pick: Jordan Montgomery / Diamondbacks | Lines for MLB Games MyBookie Betting Lines for the Games


 

Yoshinobu Yamamoto, Los Angeles Dodgers

Dodgers vs Gaints | Yoshinobu Yamamoto vs Jordan Hicks

Monday, May 13th, 2024 at 9:45 PM
Field

The 25 year old from Japan is 4-1 on the season, and a 2.91 earned run average. It has been a good start to his Major League Baseball career. Yamamoto will get the nod against the Giants on Monday, and then later in the week will stay at home and host the Cincinnati Reds. That seems like two outings he should fare well in. Both teams are light hitting more than not. We like Yamamoto to have a big week on the mound.

Dodgers vs Gaints
Week 7 Pick: Yoshinobu Yamamoto / Dodgers | Lines for MLB Games MyBookie Betting Lines for the Games

 

There you have it. Enjoy the week of baseball. We expect some great games in Major League Baseball for this week. These five pitchers are those that we suggest you watch for in Week 6 as the top pitchers. Best of luck and play ball!

MLB Pitchers to Avoid after Week 7 of the season
 

Previous Betting News

We are all well aware that the MLB season is long and that every player and team will go through some serious ups and downs over the course of that season. Even pitchers, who start every 4 or 5 days, are not immune to such swings in form, as it is just the nature of the business. As we head into Week 7, we are looking ahead at the upcoming games and the pitching matchups that each one delivers. This might well help us pick out games that we believe to be worth wagering on if we see a matchup that leans heavily in favor of one team or another. We have already looked at pitchers we are all in on in Week 7, so now let’s look at a few that we are avoiding or betting against the MLB Odds.

MLB Pitchers to Avoid after Week 7 of the season | MLB Lines by MyBookie

Griffin Canning
LA Angels

Canning does come into this week with a winning record at 2-1, but his 6.38 ERA is something that cannot be ignored. In his last 3 starts, canning pitched a total of 12.2 innings and gave up 13 earned runs in the process. He does have a winning record of 1-0 in games played away from home, but his ERA in that win was 6.10, so he was very much bailed out by the Angels offense in that one. It would very much be a pass for me on Canning.

Sean Manaea
San Francisco Giants

Originally slated to start on Tuesday night, Manaea is now listed as the Giants starter on Wednesday. Either way, we would be sitting him, regardless of when he takes the mound. Manaea comes into this week with a 1-2 record and an ERA of 7.96. The Giants have lost 3 of the last 5 games that he has started, surrendering a total of 36 runs in those 3 games. While he certainly wasn’t responsible for all of those runs, Manaea still had 13 ER in those outings. This is not a pitcher I would be putting any kind of money on right now.

Tylor Megill
New York Mets

This is a pitcher that I was somewhat on the fence about, but when looking at the small Thursday schedule, he was one that immediately jumped out as a pitcher to avoid. In fairness, that feeling is not all on him, as the Mets are sliding as a whole, drifting further and further away from the top of the NL East with each passing week. Megill is coming off a solid performance in his last start, but the Mets have still lost in 3 of his last 5 starts and have delivered little in the way of run support.

Adrian Houser
Milwaukee Brewers

This is another one that may seem a little unfair when you consider that the Brewers have won both games that he started this season. That said, Houser pitched just 8.2 innings in those outings and has an ERA of 5.19. He is scheduled to be back on the mound on Friday against the Tampa Bay Rays, who are giving every pitcher they face a hard time. They could very well get to Houser early and chase him before he even gets a chance to settle.

I have read enough, I need to place my bet now. What to do?

MLB Odds and Picks: Pitchers to Back After One Month of Action
 

Previous Betting News

When looking at games to wager on in the MLB, one of the first things that you look at is the pitching matchup. Yes, there are plenty of other factors that need to be taken into account, but it all begins with the pitcher, because if you have one that is on a hot run, their team has a shot at winning every time they take the mound. Similarly, you want to avoid teams who have a starting pitcher that is going through some struggles. As we look ahead to Week 7, we thought it might be fun to look at some pitchers you might want to back this week. We will do the same for pitchers that you might want to sit in a separate piece, but for now, let’s look at the hot hands.

MLB Pitchers to Back after Week 6 of the season | MLB Lines by MyBookie

Clayton Kershaw
LA Dodgers

The Dodgers are on a hot streak at the moment, winning 6 in a row to extend their lead atop the NL West. They will face the Minnesota Twins on Tuesday night, with Clayton Kershaw set to take the mound. Kershaw is having another stellar season with a record of 6-2 and an ERA of 2.36. His last start was particularly special, as he went 7 innings and surrendered just 1 run in an 8-1 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. That is the 2nd time in 3 outings he had gone 7 innings. He looks like a good pick again on Tuesday.

Spencer Strider
Atlanta Braves

Strider started the season with 4 straight wins before taking his first loss of the year against the Toronto Blue Jays this past weekend. That loss was certainly not on him, though, as he got zero run support in a 3-0 loss, going 6.2 innings and surrendering just 1 earned run. Overall, this season, he has a very respectable 2.51 ERA and has given up just 1 home run in his last 5 starts. He will be on the mound on Wednesday night against the Texas Rangers, who the Braves pummeled last night.

Julio Urias
LA Dodgers

It’s a smaller schedule on Thursday night, so the pickings are somewhat slim, Of the pitchers set to take the mound, I would be putting my money on Julio Urias, who heads into that game with a 5-3 record and a 3.61 ERA. Those are not the greatest numbers out there, but he is coming off a good performance in his last start, where he pitched 7 innings against the Minnesota Twins in a 4-2 win for the Dodgers. The Dodgers have won in each of his last 3 starts, so why not again?

Zac Gallen
Arizona Diamondbacks

The Arizona Diamondbacks have been a pleasant surprise this season, and rather than falling off like many believed they would, they come into this week on a 4-game win streak as they look to keep the pressure on the LA Dodgers. Zac Gallen has been an integral part of the success of this team, going 6-1 with an ERA of 2.35 to this point in the season. He has gone beyond 7 innings in his last 2 starts and surrendered just 3 earned runs in those games. I’m expecting more of the same on Friday against the slumping Pittsburgh Pirates.

2017 MLB Pitchers to Back After One Month of Action
 

Previous Betting News

Okay, MLB baseball betting enthusiasts, with the 2017 regular season now a month old, the picture is starting to take shape on just which pitchers are offering the most value as we head into the second month of what has been a mildly surprising start to the regular season.

This expert analysis on the top five pitchers that you should back after one month of action will help you maximize your chances of cashing in over the next couple of weeks at the very least. Now, let’s get down to business with the latest MLB betting picks here.

MLB Pitchers to Back After One Month of Action

Money

Miguel Gonzalez – White Sox 4-0 +$533

In his last two starts spanning a combined 16.1 innings, the 33-year-old Miguel Gonzalez has allowed just one earned run while allowing just six hits and striking out nine.

Jeremy Hellickson – Philadelphia 4-0 +$501

The Philadelphia Phillies may be mediocre at bet, but when 30-year-old Jeremy Hellickson is on the mound, you may want to consider backing the Phils. Hellickson has gone at least five innings in all four of his starts this season while not allowing more than two earned runs in any outing.

Robbie Ray – Arizona 4-0 +$455

Use some caution if you’re going to bet on Robbie Ray, seeing a how the 25-year-old southpaw got lit up for five earned runs on nine hits in 5.1 innings of an 11-5 win over the Dodgers in his last start on Saturday.

Jon Gray – Colorado 4-0 +$441

Gray got rocked for five earned runs on six hits in just four innings of a 7-5 win over Milwaukee in his first start but has only allowed one run over his last two inning, though he’s only gone a combined 8.1 inning over the two-start span.

Ubaldo Jimenez – Baltimore 4-0 +$440

Jimenez got smacked senseless in giving up an identical five earned runs in both of his first two starts and allowing three earned runs on three hits in just 3.1 innings of his last start on Monday.

ERA

Ervin Santana – Minnesota (0.64 ERA)

Ervin Santana has been downright phenomenal in not allowing more than one earned run in each of his four starts this season while tossing at least seven innings in three of those starts.

Chris Sale – Boston (0.91 ERA)

Chris Sale is just 1-1 after four starts in his first season with Boston, but that’s because the Red Six have let him down in the run support department three times this season. Sale has limited the opposition to one run or les in three of his four starts.

Dallas Keuchel – Houston (0.96 ERA)

Dallas Keuchel ha tossed an identical seven innings in all four starts this season while not allowing more than one earned run in any outing.

Chase Anderson – Milwaukee (1.12 ERA)

In four starts this season, Chase Anderson has limited the opposition to one run or less three times while not allowing more than two earned runs in any start.

Danny Duffy – Kansas City (1.32 ERA)

Danny Duffy has limited the opposition to one run or less three times in four starts this season, while not allowing more than two earned runs in any start.

Here is a look at the early win leaders.
