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)

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.
