# Of No-Hitters For 2016 MLB Over/Under 4.5
Yes: +115 or No: -115
This is a resounding yes in my view. In 2015, Max Scherzer threw 2 no-no’s, and could have easily thrown 2 more. This was 2 of 7 doled out last campaign.
There are so many teams that are loaded with HR happy clubs that have plenty of swing and miss candidates like the Houston Astros and Baltimore Orioles. This also brings us to our next stat.
Will a pitcher Strikeout 16 or more batters in a game this season?
Yes: -150 or No: +110
There are just so many great pitchers that could accomplish this feat. I love Chris Archer, Clayton Kershaw, Chris Sale, Felix Hernandez and Stephen Strasburg to potentially do this early on in the year.
There are a ton of poor clubs in the National League who could fan at the mercy of a top pitcher.
The third number we look at is:
Will there be a 50 Games Saved guy this season?
Yes: +100 No: -140
I just think all Closers will fall just short.
With parity being at an all time high in the American League, it almost rules it out.
Like the Cubs to win almost 100 games, yet I see the club acquiring another Closer midway through the year to help out Hector Rondon.
Pittsburgh’s Mark Melancon might have a shot, however I think there is also a chance he could be traded.
