First of all, it is paramount this time of year that you confirm who will be pitching in MLB games to end the season.

At first glance, these odds seem like a massive mistake.

Sportsbooks currently have Carlos Rodón and the San Francisco Giants as a significant underdog to Sean Manaea and the San Diego Padres in the first five innings.

As I said, this seems like an error, but you need to confirm that Rodon will be sent to the mound for this wager to be worth placing.

Yes, the Padres are a better team this season and are on their way to the Wild Card. However, Rodón has been one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, boasting a 2.88 ERA and 1.03 WHIP over 178 frames with 237 strikeouts.

The Giants southpaw did not fare well in his most recent outing against San Diego, allowing five runs over four innings. That said, Rodón did toss a complete-game three-hitter against the Padres in July with 12 strikeouts.

As mentioned above, you need to be careful with this one, but if Rodon is on the mound it is easily our MLB bet of the day.
