How hard is it to win three in a row?

In a full slate of Sunday games, no starting pitcher is 3-0 in Last 3 Starts. Only two pitchers (Gilbert on the Mariners, Anderson on the Braves) are 2-0.

And if you lose the 4th start bet and pitcher Wins 4th in a row.....triple your bet against his next start.

Great batting strategy! I'll have t keep doing this. Maybe I've discovered the Golden Goose.

Manoah has only lost three games in his first 32 starts. Pretty amazing. I wouldn't bet the farm on #4 today, but with the way the Yankees are swinging the sticks, he'll have his hands full. At least he doesn't have to worry about Stanton, who is enjoying a day of R&R.

How's this for a betting strategy? Whenever a pitcher has won his last three starts, bet against him?

The Braves have to be heavy favorites in Wrigley today. The opposing pitcher, Justin Steele, is winless in his last three starts and is 1-5 on the season, but in his last three starts he has a 2.37 ERA. Isn't he kind of owed a win here? Isn't Wright due for a loss?

Following this logic, you would bet against Alek Manoah in Toronto. He's also 3-0 in his last three starts.

Encouraging you do that is the opponent: the Yankees.

So I'll put my imaginary money on Steele and Taillon today, but in the second game I'm not betting on the underdog. Definitely not.

I think your theory is correct, Alex.  Pablo Lopez has also "only" earned $7, despite his microscopic ERA and WHIP.

It's a good question and I can't really answer it.

I think it's because, even in a small sample size, it's almost impossible to stand as far above the pack when five categories are counted instead of four.

After only 4 starts, already 1/6 of the way to 200 Ks.

The only Cubs run scored last night when Wright - who had only walked 3 batters all year - walked Rivas and Heyward to lead off the inning.  Settled down and was on the way to getting out of the inning unblemished (strikeout, fielders choice grounder) when Wright went to pick Hoerner off 1B, Hoerner got into a rundown, and Rivas sprinted home from 3rd while that took place.

Kind of feels like that could be scored an error ...

Picked up Wright in the 2nd round of our reserve draft.  Can't profess any special insights here - except that everyone else was busy grabbing prospects and I looked at Wrights first start (which came between our auction and our slow draft for reserves) and thought "if this guy masters his control he's dangerous".

Question on formulae ... wondering how an SP who is really racking up the K's in a big way could be more valuable in 4x4 than 5x5?

Kyle Wright (P) ATL - Apr. 28
https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=14765

Wright (3-0) earned the win over the Cubs on Thursday, tossing seven innings during which he allowed one run on three hits and four walks while striking out eight.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Wright continued his upstart campaign with his third quality start, each of which has resulted in a win. The right-hander notched 11 swinging strikes, didn't allow any extra-base hits and finished with eight punchouts. Wright has been so good this season that his ERA actually increased (to 1.13) with the superb performance, as he entered the contest having allowed only two earned runs across his first 17 frames.
