Best NRFI Bets Today – Free NRFI Picks

NRFI Prediction 1: Cleveland Guardians at Minnesota Twins NRFI (-135)

Pablo Lopez and Tanner Bibee toe the slab for the Twins and Guardians, respectively, and we expect there to be no runs scored in the first inning of today’s contest. Both pitchers are making their second start of the season.

In his first start, Bibee got three outs in the first inning between a ground rule double. Bibee’s ability to induce whiffs and get strikeouts makes him a great pitcher to target for NRFI bets. He struck out two batters after allowing a double, keeping his first frame scoreless for the NRFI.

Pablo Lopez allowed a first-inning home run, so he is 0-1 to NRFI’s this season. This is a better matchup for Lopez. He has a .285 xWOBA against the Guardians lineup, and his ability to rack up strikeouts makes him a great NRFI target.

NRFI Best Bet Today #2: Chicago White Sox at Kansas City Royals NRFI (-120)

Michael Soroka had a terrible first start of the season, but we are expecting a bounce back today against a middle-of-the-pack Royals lineup. He allowed three first-inning runs in his first outing, but we do not expect that to be the case again.

Seth Lugo, the Royals starter, did not allow a run in the first inning of his first start. He got all three outs without allowing a base runner. Lugo only allowed one walk and two hits in six innings of work.

The White Sox are averaging .4 runs per first inning this season, and the Royals are averaging .83. This number is juiced to the under because neither team has a great top of the lineup, and both pitchers are capable of preventing runs, making this a great NRFI bet today.
