Five pitchers to bet on right now


Last week I wrote about a handful of pitchers who have struggled early and probably shouldn’t be worth backing until they prove otherwise. But several other pitchers have done just the opposite, putting on dominant performances in relative obscurity and having not yet claimed the respect from oddsmakers they should be receiving. This means value to me. I would endorse backing any of these pitchers until the prices catch up.

I have found historically that some pitchers tend to be underrated compared with fellow starters in that team’s rotation. The books set the numbers so high for the top guys, often overpricing them, that it often leaves a ton of wiggle room for the up-and-comers. Other pitchers might have done well earlier in their careers but were inconsistent and unworthy of respect from those setting the numbers. But now that they are putting it together seemingly every time they take the hill, you should get behind them.

Here are five pitchers you should back in the coming weeks because oddsmakers are still doing you a favor and keeping their prices low.
