Over bettors sizing up Heston’s next start after no-hitter


USA Today Sports

Chris Heston became the first rookie to toss a no-no since 2007 (Clay Buchholz), when the San Francisco Giants beat the New York Mets 5-0 on June 9. 

Heston did not allow a single hit or walk, though he did hit three batters, while striking out 11 as the Giants were a +110 road dog Tuesday. 

However, going back to 1999, and excluding three collective no-no’s involving more than one pitcher (Houston 2003, Seattle 2012, Philadelphia 2014), starters making their first appearance since their no-hitter are 22-16-1 Over/Under – 56 percent Over.

Last season featured three no-hitters from LA’s Clayton Kershaw, San Francisco’s Tim Lincecum and Washington’s Jordan Zimmerman. Last season saw those pitchers go 1-2 O/U in their next start with Lincecum and ZImmerman combining for 16.2 innings pitched and one run in their start following their no-no.

Heston is expected to be back on the mound Sunday versus the Arizona Diamonbacks – according to the Giants’ current pitching rotation. He is 6-4 with a 3.77 ERA this season. San Fran has gone 6-3-1 O/U in Heston’s past 10 starts.
