Cain Perfect Game: Next Game Odds

Six times since 1999, a pitcher threw a perfect game. Five times since 1999, that pitcher's team lost his next start.

Matt Cain tries to break that streak for the Giants tonight as they face Jerome Williams and the Los Angeles Angels. Early betting action sided with the Angels at about 54%, who were small home underdogs.

But Cain brings a 8-2 mark to the game and was dominant in no-hitting the Astros last week. Meanwhile Williams is 6-4 to date on the season for the Angels.

If this speech sounds familiar, it was repeated in April when Philip Humber threw a perfect game. The White Sox lost his next six starts.
