Rea: The Best Money Pitcher In Baseball

We all know about the aces – the guys that hurl double-digit strikeouts and are paid ludicrous amounts of money – but it has been relatively unheralded Colin Rea who has been the best bet this season. Rea leads all pitchers in money won with bettors being up +$674 if they wagered $100 on each of his starts. Rea will take to the mound for the San Diego Padres when they face the San Francisco Giants Tuesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Giants have won their past five games while outscoring opponents 19-11.
  • The OVER is 9-2 in the past 11 meetings between the Giants and Padres.
  • The Giants are 9-2 SU in their past 11 games as road favorites.

Why has Rea – who has a rather pedestrian 4.24 ERA – the best money pitcher in baseball? The Padres inexplicably score runs when he is on the mound. San Diego has given Rea 5.9 runs of support per outing compared to just 3.2 runs for the rest of their starting rotation.

The Padres may be hard pressed to continue this batting trend as the face Madison Bumgarner Tuesday. MadBum has a 2.72 ERA through his first eight starts and has yet to allow any team to score more than four runs in an outing.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The San Diego Padres were listed as 157 moneyline underdogs earlier in the day at BetOnline, while odds makers set the opening total line around 6.5 earlier at Bovada.
