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

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

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 6 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.
