Best NRFI Bets Today – Free NRFI Picks

NRFI Prediction 1: Kansas City Royals at Seattle Mariners (-110)

The Royals are one of the best first-inning teams in baseball, averaging .67 runs per first inning, but we are going with the under in today’s AL showdown. The Royals have averaged just .33 runs per first inning over their last three games, and their run production in the first frame drops to .42 runs when they are on the road. Today, they face George Kirby, who does not walk many batters at all and has pitched better at home in his career.

Brady Singer has mixed up his pitch usage this season, and he is making the start for the Phillies. Singer has looked much better this season after a dreadful 2023, and he will look to continue his case by starting off today with a scoreless first frame. This is a great NRFI target. The Mariners are averaging .32 runs in the first, which is 27th in the MLB, and Singer gives them a tough matchup.

NRFI Best Bet Today #2: Colorado Rockies at San Francisco Giants (-110)

The Rockies are headed on the road from Coors Field, and this is a great offense to fade on the road. The Rocklies are one of the worst first-inning offenses in the MLB on the road. Colorado Averages just .38 runs in the first frame when they are away from hitter friendly Coors Field. They are facing righty Randy Vasquez who they hit hard at Coors, but this game is in San Diego.

The Padres are averaging .81 runs in the first frame, which is one of ht best markets in baseball, but they have been worse at home. So far this season, they are averaging .45 runs at home. Dakota Hudson makes the start for the Rockies, and though he has been getting hit hard, the Padres roster has a .305 xwOBA against Hudson, which is a solid mark.
