Three hot over pitchers on the bump Wednesday

The over has been on fire in May and Wednesday features three solid candidates to top the total in their starts. Here's a look at three pitchers who take a combined 14-2 over/under record to the bump Wednesday.

Mike Leake, Cincinnati Reds (2-1, 4.15 ERA, 6-0 O/U)

The Reds righty is second in the majors with a 6-0 over/under record this season. By no means has Leake been awful. He brings a respectable 4.15 ERA into his start Wednesday and has two quality starts on the year. The over trend can be attributed to the Reds supplying him with an excellent six runs per start.

Leake will start against the Atlanta Braves Wednesday. He pitched eight solid innings and gave up just one earned run in his lone start versus Atlanta in 2012.

Jake Westbrook, St. Louis Cardinals, (2-1, 1.07 ERA, 4-1 O/U)

Westbrook has been downright amazing this season and brings sparkling 1.07 ERA into his start Wednesday. He is another pitcher who gets great run support during his starts. The Cards provide Westbrook with 4.40 runs per start. But it is the Cards' bullpen that has spoiled a lot of Westbrook's outings. The Cardinals bullpen is last in the majors with a 5.45 ERA.

Westbrook gets the ball against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday. In three starts versus the Cubs last season, he gave up five earned runs in 19 innings.

Pedro Hernandez, Minnesota Twins, (1-0, 3.92 ERA, 4-1 O/U)

Hernandez is coming off a rough outing versus the Cleveland Indians on May 3. He gave up five earned runs in 5 1-3 innings of work. The young right-hander has yet to post a quality start on the year and has yet to go deeper than five innings.

Hernandez is slated to take the mound versus the Boston Red Sox Wednesday. In his lone start in 2012, as a member of the Chicago White Sox, Hernandez gave up eight earned runs in four innings versus the Red Sox.

MLB Top 4: Biggest day/night differences in baseball

With most teams having played roughly 30 games so far this season, we have a large enough sample size to start looking closer at split stats and how that info can help with our MLB bets.

Here's a look at four teams with a huge difference between their performance in day games and night games.

Successful day teams:

Kansas City Royals

10-4 day, 7-7 night

The Royals are a top team in the American League when it comes to playing day games. Kansas City's pitching staff has a 2.62 ERA in day games, good enough for second in the AL. Compare that with a 4.04 ERA in night games and the disparity is glaring.

Their batting average in day games is .279 against .256 at night. The light-hitting Royals have just 16 homers on the year and just six of those came with the sun shining.

The Royals' next early start will be versus the New York Yankees at home on May 12 with Ervin Santana slated to pitch against Hiroki Kuroda. The Yankees are currently 6-6 in day games.

Minnesota Twins

10-6 day, 3-9 night

The Minnesota Twins are the worst night team in the majors at 3-9 but are a respectable 10-6 in day games.

Pitching has let the Twins down when they play under lights. Their 5.24 ERA in night games is third worst in the AL. They have fanned just 60 batters in their 13 night games. That's 44 less than anybody else.

Day games are a different story. Their ERA is 2.98 under the sun and they have walked just 35 batters in 133 innings pitched.

The Twins' next day game will be versus the Baltimore Orioles at home on May 12. The O's currently boast an 8-5 day record.

Successful night teams:

Colorado Rockies

13-5 night, 6-8 day

The Rockies average roughly a full run more when they play under the lights. They have crossed the plate 107 times in 19 night games and they are third in the majors with a .284 batting average in night games.

Colorado opens a three-game series with the Chicago Cubs on May 13. All three games will be under the lights. The Cubbies are currently 7-8 in night games.

Texas Rangers

16-5 night, 4-7 day

There is no bigger disparity between night and day records then what the Texas Rangers have. The scorching heat in Arlington usually leads to a vastly superior night record for the Rangers.

The Rangers are batting .274 in night games compared to just .242 in their day games. Pitchers will also perform more comfortably in the evenings. The Rangers' ERA is 2.89 at night and almost a full run more at 3.87 during the day.

Texas is back in Arlington for a four-game series versus the Detroit Tigers on April 16.

On Wednesday night the Free MLB System play is on Washington. Game 974 at 7:05 eastern. The Tigers fit a negative system that has cashed 10 of times playing against certain road teams off a road favored win by 5 or more runs at 140 or higher, vs an opponent like the Nationals who return home off a road win. Washington has tore up American League teams scoring over 8 runs per game and hitting .352 During Inter league play. They are 4-1 in May and take on a Detroit team that has lost both times as a short road dog. Zimmerman makes the start for Washington and he has slightly better numbers this year that his Counter part Annibal Sanchez. The Nationals have the 3rd Best Home era in the league. Look for Washington to take the Opener.
