What is the formula for finding a profitable starting pitcher? It’s a complicated formula, and the stats that you might associate with a profitable pitcher don’t always apply.
Win/loss record isn’t everything. Clayton Kershaw is more profitable this year with a 6-4 record than Carlos Carrasco, who is 18-6. ERA isn’t a determining factor, as Zack Greinke comes in #9 on our list, right ahead of Madison Bumgarner and his 1.73 ERA.
Team start record isn’t even an accurate indicator, as Adam Morgan’s 7-6 TSR is not nearly as good as Gerrit Cole’s 19-9 TSR, yet Morgan is two spots above Cole on our list.
The most influential part of a profitable pitcher is the MLB Betting Line. Finding pitchers who win while being listed as the underdog or small favorites is the key. Of course, winning at a high rate trumps all.
