MLB Top 3: Hot 'over' pitchers on the mound Wednesday

Looking play some totals? Wednesday's Major League Baseball action features a trio of pitchers that have trended toward scorelines finishing over the total.

Here is a look at three pitchers to consider if you're looking to play totals.

Jake Westbrook, St. Louis Cardinals (7-8, 4.35 ERA)

Westbrook has been one of the top 'over' pitchers in the majors to date, with the 'over' going 13-5 in his 18 starts. The veteran right-hander has fallen on hard times of late, allowing 20 earned runs over his previous 16 1/3 innings.

The Cardinals take on the Brewers in Milwaukee on Wednesday.

Mike Leake, Cincinnati Reds (10-5, 3.01 ERA)

Leake has seen the 'over' in four of his last six starts, and the 'over' is 7-4 in his 11 home starts. The 26-year-old is winless in his last four starts and surrendered four runs on nine hits over five innings in his last appearance.

The Reds entertain the Arizona Diamondbacks on Wednesday.

Juan Nicasio, Colorado Rockies (7-6, 4.94 ERA)

When Nicasio pitches, runs are often plentiful. The 27-year-old right-hander has hit the 'over' in 15 of his 22 starts, and has had 12 'overs' compared to just three 'unders' when pitching at night.

The Rockies visit the Phillies in Philadelphia on Wednesday night.

I'd love to read more articles on why sharps like totals so much, especially in baseball. One of the Covers Evpers (could have been Steve Merrill) a couple seasons ago wrote a great articles on why he loves overs in MLB games as opposed to unders. It was really insightful to read another opinion on stuff even with offense trending downwards in baseball in recent seasons. Good stuff
