I'd suggest you search the forum, or perhaps have a look at Wikipedia. I'm sure you can find pretty detailed info in existing sources. (Or just wait for a better reply than mine... )

OESD + flush draw: 1.424%
flush draw: 5.2%
straight draw: 8.0% (OESD)

I don't know what is SG

@jawoftheox, I think SG = Suited Gappers.

I have once read some interesting facts about SCs in some other forum.

There's a 5.6% chance of flopping a strong made hand (2 pair+)
There's a 6.9% chance of flopping a combo draw (12 outer+)
This gives us a 12.5% chance of flopping a big hand/draw.
(About the same chance of flopping sets with PPs)

But you will flop a flush draw or OESD 13.2% of the times.

This means that 25.7% of the time we will flop something we can continue with.

So, about 1 out of 8 times we will flop a big made hand/combo draw.

But you got to take into account that you are not a huge favorite to win the hand most of the times, even when you flop big (when we flop a set, for instance, we usually have 90%+ equity). So we really need to think all the way through when we decide to play them.
The Stack to Pot Ratio becomes important, so does position and implied odds.

I used to play them more when deep, and most of the times in position when I played mostly zoom, where there are always deep stacks around offering some tempting implied odds to your SCs.

Hope this is what you were looking for.
Good luck.

It is a little less with a S one-gapper, something like 23% instead of 25.7%. If you would like to see how was that all calculate, PM me and I'll send you a thread.
Plus, I'm not sure that the Gutshot + pair type of draw was taken into account in those calculations, so it might even be a little bit higher.
