Best NRFI Bets Today – Free NRFI Picks

NRFI Prediction 1: St. Louis Cardinals at New York Mets (-120)

These two teams are two of the worst teams in the MLB at scoring runs in the first inning, and considering the matchup, there is value in betting no runs in the first. The Mets are averaging .25 runs in the first, which is the worst mark in the MLB, while the Cardinals are averaging .36, and we are fading both top-of-the-lineups here.

Miles Mikolas is going for the Cardinals tonight, and despite having one of the highest contact rates in the MLB, Mikolas has pitched well. The current Mets’ roster has a .312 xwOBA and a .238 batting average against Mikolas, meaning he has pitched very well against them. The Cardinals have never seen Jose Butto before, but based on this lineup’s inability to score runs, this is one of the best NRFI bets on the board today.

NRFI Best Bet Today #2: New York Yankees at Milwaukee Brewers (-110)

The Yankees’ bats came alive in the first inning during their last series against the A’s, but we don’t expect this to continue. Yes, New York has a scary top-of-the-lineup, but they have not been as dominant as you’d expect. New York is averaging .46 runs per first inning, but on the road this season, this number drops to .15.

The Brewers are one of the top first-inning teams in the MLB, scoring an average of .63 runs in the first frame. However, tonight, they face Luis Gil, who has insane stuff when he is on. Gil struggles to find the zone at times, and walks often kill NRFIs, but when he is on, he is very hard to hit. The Brewers are prone to striking out, so if Gil is on his game, the Brewers should be retired with ease.
