MLB Odds and Picks: Pitchers to Back After Two Months of Action

MLB Odds and Picks: Pitchers to Back After Two Months of Action

The new week in the MLB has already begun, but there are a ton of games till to come in Week 9, which means that it’s time to start talking about the pitchers who look like a good bet over the next few days. Those of you who routinely wager on baseball through the course of the season will be well aware of the importance of a good starting pitcher, especially in the games where there might seem to be a bit of a mismatch between the two starters. What we are looking at here are the pitchers who are in form and who might just help their team to a win this coming week, so let’s get to check out the MLB betting analysis.


MLB Pitchers to Back after Week 8 of the season | MLB Lines by MyBookie


Zac Gallen
Arizona Diamondbacks

There was a feeling that the LA Dodgers might well run away with the NL West again this season, but the Diamondbacks are doing a good job of hanging in there. They are just a game and a half out of the lead and are in a series with the Colorado Rockies to start the week. Tuesday night will see Zac Gallen take the mound, which should be good news for the D-Backs. Gallen is 6-2 this season with an ERA of 2.97, and while he is 0-1 in his last 2 starts, I think we will see him bounce back with a big performance next time out.

George Kirby
Seattle Mariners

After going on a run where he picked up the win in 5 of 6 starts, Kirby has cooled off over the last 2 games, although one of those Ls came in a 3-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves, where Kirby pitched a solid 7 innings. His last start was a bit of a nightmare, and his next start will come against the surging New York Yankees. Despite all of that, he has been mostly very good this season, so I think he is due for an uptick and another solid outing.

Framber Valdez
Houston Astros

The start of the season for Valdez was a little up and down, which was essentially the case for the Astros in general, but he has settled into a groove, as has the rest of the team. The Astros have won each of the last 4 games in which Framber has started, with the pitcher picking up the W in 3 of those games. He is now 5-4 on the season and has a very respectable 2.38 ERA. Valdez is set to start versus the Angels on Thursday, and I think he will keep the good times rolling with another strong outing.

Zack Wheeler
Philadelphia Phillies

You could look at Wheeler, see that he is 4-4 on the season, and automatically dismiss him, but I think that might be a mistake. The issue that he has is that he is getting very little in the way of run support from his team when he starts. That was seen in his last start, which came against the Atlanta Braves, where he pitched an absolute gem on his way to a 2-1 win for the Phillies. The Phillies have delivered just 10 runs in his last 4 starts, but Wheeler has been solid throughout. At some point, they are going to deliver the goods for him.
