Over bettors sizing up Lincecum's start after no-hitter

In his last start, Tim Lincecum of the San Francisco Giants became the second pitcher this season to throw a no-hitter after Homer Bailey accomplished the feat on July 2.

Lincecum's was the 36th no-hitter since 1999. During this time span, and excluding two collective no-no's involing more than one pitcher (Houston 2003, Seattle 2012), starters making their first appearance since their no-hitter make for a solid over bet, having gone 19-13-1 over/under.

The Giants currently own an o/u record of 49-43-4 and are 11-8 o/u in Lincecum's 19 starts thus far in 2013.

The Cincinnati Reds and Milwaukee Brewers kept the scoreline under the total in Bailey's first start after his no-no. The Reds lost 4-3 and the total was 8.
