Best YRFI Bets Today – Free YRFI Picks

YRFI Prediction 1: Chicago Cubs at Atlanta Braves (-110)

The Cubs are one of the better first-inning teams in baseball, averaging .6 runs per first inning, and we are going with the over in today’s NL matchup. The Cubs have averaged .67 runs per first inning over their last three games. Their run production in the first frame dips to .29 runs when they are on the road, but we are backing them. Today, they face Charlie Morton, who has a .328 wxOBA against the current O’s roster with a low 22.7% K rate, a high 8.0% walk rate, and a .270 expected batting average against.

Javier Assad has had some good-looking moments this season, but this Braves lineup is something else. Atlanta has not had a ton of first-inning success so far. They average .49 runs per first frame, but that number rises to .68 runs at home. The Braves have scored a first-inning run in their last three games, making this a great YRFI target.

YRFI Best Bet Today #2: Cincinnati Reds at Arizona Diamondbacks (-110)

The D-Backs are one of the best YRFI teams in the MLB, putting up .79 runs per first frame. However, they are 0-3 to the YRFI in their last three games, but we view this as a buy-low spot. Arizona averages .9 runs in the first frame when they are at home. They are facing lefty Andrew Abbott, and the D-Backs are the best lineup against lefties in baseball.

The Reds are averaging .36 runs in the first frame, which is not good, but they have been better away from home. So far this season, they are averaging .40 runs on the road. Righty Brandon Pfaadft makes the start for Arizona, and he is coming off a 0 strikeout start where he was hit hard, making this a great look for a YRFI.
