Best NRFI Bets Today – Free NRFI Picks

NRFI Prediction 1: Los Angeles Dodgers at Chicago Cubs NRFI (-140)

It’s scary to fade the top of the Dodgers’ batting order in any scenario, but today is a great game for an NRFI. In order for that to happen, Mookie Betts, Shohei Ohtani, and Freddie Freeman need to get out, but we think that will be the case today.

Kyle Hendricks is the Cubs’ starter today, and the Dodgers’ fade has more to do with the weather than Hendricks. Hendricks is 1-0 to the NRFI this season, but the cold weather and inbound wind at Wrigley lead us to believe that Hendricks can put together a 1-2-3 inning.

On the flip side, Bobby Miller makes the start for the Dodgers after a dazzling debut last week. Miller did not let up a run in six innings, and as we already noted, the weather should kill any balls hit in the air.

Based on the weather in this one, we like neither team to cross the plate in the first.

NRFI Best Bet Today #2: Seattle Mariners at Milwaukee Brewers NRFI (-135)

Freddy Peralta and Logan Gilbert are two studs, and we expect both of these pitchers to put up sweat-free frames in the first inning. Neither of these offenses has been electric to start the season, so we are going with the pitching in this one.

Peralta did not allow a run in the first inning of his first start, and he only allowed one run in the entire start. Gilbert is also 1-0 to the NRFI this season, so both of these pitchers are primed not to allow runs in the first inning.
