Having the rug pulled out from under you is no way to win bets. A pitcher could hurt himself while warming up. The replacement may be another starter, but can also be a guy who is unproven in the starter role. A pitcher could be a game-time decision, with the starter a bit up in the air. Then you really want to think it through. No harm, no foul. It can be a little upsetting to handicap a game and receive odds that you found were a good value.
Then when you sit down to watch the game, a pitcher was changed and so have the odds of your pick. There can be a few exceptions. The main one is when picking an underdog team whose starting pitcher is not well-known or proven facing a favored team with a well-known ace pitcher.
A pitching change is likely to help us. But if the ace gets pulled on the team we picked against, that will definitely help us and give us a better chance to win our bet. Another good idea is betting into the lowest favorite odds and the highest paying underdog odds.
