MLB’s Top Money Pitcher Starts Thursday

Josh Tomlin is not quite a name that comes to mind when you think of dominance, but there is no better word to describe him for bettors this season. Bettors would be up $769 if you backed Tomlin in each of his 10 starts this season – assuming you wagered $100 on each game. Tomlin will take to the mound once again when the Cleveland Indians visit the Seattle Mariners Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Mariners are 8-3 in Nathan Karns’ 11 starts this season.
  • The UNDER is 5-1 in the Indians’ past five outings.
  • Josh Tomlin is 4-0 with a 2.12 ERA in four career starts at Safeco Field.

Tomlin has pitched well this season - with a 3.54 ERA - but it has been the run support that has made him an incredible bet. The Tribe has supplied Tomlin with 5.6 runs of support per game - which is among the top third in the MLB.

The Mariners will counter Tomlin by sending Nathan Karns to the bump. Karns has been a good fifth starter for the M’s this season, but he is coming off an outing in which he allowed eight hits and seven runs through just four innings.
