MLB Top 3: Monday Pitchers Trending Toward the 'Under'
By Covers.com

With the race for playoff positioning heating up, teams are relying more than ever on quality starting pitching. Run prevention in September often means the difference between a spot in the postseason and a long offseason.

Here are three Monday pitchers who have delivered on the 'under' in recent games:

Chris Tillman, Baltimore Orioles (15-5, 3.71 ERA)

Tillman's emergence as an ace in his fifth major-league season has helped keep the Orioles' playoff hopes afloat. The 25-year-old Anaheim, Calif., native has delivered four straight "under" results, and is particularly stingy at home - registering 10 'unders' versus just four 'overs'. Tillman is coming off a rough outing against Cleveland, but has a 3.26 ERA in nine starts since the All-Star break and is primed for a strong bounce-back performance.

The Orioles open a four-game series with the visiting New York Yankees on Monday.

Jered Weaver, Los Angeles Angels (9-8, 3.33 ERA)

Weaver is having a down year by his standards - having won 38 games over his previous two seasons - but has still been a revelation for 'under' bettors. The lanky 30-year-old has been one of the most reliable pitchers in the league in that regard, recording 16 'unders' against just five 'overs' so far in 2013. He has been especially strong in the second half, going 6-3 with a 3.03 ERA in 10 starts.

The Angels visit the Minnesota Twins on Monday in a makeup game from an April 17 rainout.

Jarred Cosart, Houston Astros (1-1, 2.13 ERA)

The Astros aren't going to the postseason anytime soon, but fans have to be encouraged by Cosart's first taste of major-league action. The 23-year-old Texan has gone 'under' in six of his first nine starts, with all of those results coming on the road. Cosart's previous outing was a difficult one - he was tagged for four runs over four innings in a no-decision against Minnesota - but he has allowed more than three runs just twice in 2013.

The Astros kick off a three-game series against the host Seattle Mariners on Monday.

New York Yankees at Baltimore Orioles

Yankees avoiding a four game sweep at hands of Boston Red Sox with a 4-3 victory Sunday head on the road for a ten game swing starting in Baltimore. Lefty C.C. Sabathia starts for the Yankees having won his last two and four of his last five starts to compile a 13-11 record with a 4.86 ERA. His counter part this evening will be Chris Tillman hitting a rough spot with one win his last five trips to the mound (1-4 TSR) bringing his mark to 15-5 with a 3.71 ERA. Although both hurlers appear to be headed in opposite direction a deeper dive into the trusted baseball database some negative numbers against New York tells us Yankees are in a tough spot. New York has won just one of the six times it has traveled to face the Orioles. Yankees are a dreadful 5-12 as underdogs opening a series on the road including 0-3 w/Sabathia. Tillman having already defeated Yankees at home this year sports a perfect 5-0 TSR following a non-quality start (<6 inn, =>4 runs) and heads to the hill with a 7-2 TSR opening a series along with a smart 9-3 record in night games.
