Best NRFI Bets Today – Free NRFI Picks

NRFI Prediction 1: Colorado Rockies at Toronto Blue Jays (-125)

Toronto and Colorado have both struggled to score runs in the first inning so far this season, so we are targeting this one for an NRFI. The Blue Jays are averaging .15 runs per first inning, and the Rockies are averaging .31 runs per first inning.

Kevin Gausman, the Jays ace, takes the mound tonight at home. Gausman entered this season coming off an injury, and it’s been tough sledding for him so far. The good news for Gasuman is he gets to face a Rockies lineup that swings and misses a ton, and Gausman is great at inducing whiffs and chases.

Ryan Feltner makes the start for Colorado, and he is 0-2 to the NRFI so far this season. Despite this lack of first-inning success, the Jays offense has been struggling, so we expect him to be able to get three outs in Toronto.

NRFI Best Bet Today #2: Chicago Cubs at Seattle Mariners NRFI (-125)

The Cubs head to Seattle for a series against the Mariners, and we expect there to be an NRFI in the first game of this series. Jordan Wicks makes the start for the Cubs, and he has pitched well so far as a starter. Wicks is great and inducing whiffs and chases, and Seattle struggles against left-handed pitching.

Bryce Miller makes the start for Seattle, and he’s 2-0 to the NRFI so far this season. The Cubs are averaging .67 runs per first inning, but we like their bats to cool off tonight in a pitcher’s park against Miller who is great at inducing chases.
