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


USA Today Sports

Hisashi Iwakuma became the oldest pitcher to throw a no-hitter since Randy Johnson’s perfect game in 2004, when the Seattle Mariners beat the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday. Iwakuma became the first pitcher to toss a no-no in the American League since teammate Felix Hernandez in 2012.

Iwakuma walked two batters in the fourth and ended the day with three in total as his only blemishes on his day.

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 24-17-1 Over/Under – 56 percent Over.

Chris Heston, Max Scherzer and Cole Hamels have all thrown no-hitters this season with the O/U going 1-2.

Iwakuma’s next scheduled start comes Tuesday when the Mariners visit the Texas Rangers.
