Action or Listed?
Some bookmakers will state the starting pitcher of each team at the time you place the bet and will offer the 3 markets above as either action or listed.
If you take the action bet, then regardless of who starts the game (It is not uncommon for starting pitchers to be changed) your bet will remain in play.
However, the bookmaker will likely recalculate the odds to account for the change of pitcher.
An alternative option is to take the listed bet. If you take the listed bet and either of the starting pitchers changes then your bet becomes void and the stakes are returned.
This is a nice bit of protection to have, especially if you have backed an ace and then he is withdrawn for a spot starter.

Key Baseball Stats To Consider
Naturally, to win a game of baseball you need to be able to score runs and often the top run-scorers are the divisional winners.
The most common pitching stat you will see is ERA. This is the Earned Run Average and is the number of earned runs a pitcher gives up over 9 innings. Anything under 4.00 is considered to be good with anything under 3.00 excellent.
Another useful stat is WHIP (Walks and hits per inning pitched). This gives you an indication of how many times a pitcher puts a runner on base each inning. A good WHIP would be around 1.20 which equates to almost 11 base runners per game.
Another stat to look at is quality starts. A quality start in baseball is when a starting pitcher pitches at least 6 innings and allows no more than 3 earned runs. A pitcher with a high percentage of quality starts is likely to give you a good run for your money.
The On Base Percentage is the number of times that a team reaches base, either with a hit, walk or hit by pitch. A good team OBP would be around .325 as this equates to approximately 13 runners on base per game.
