Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Reds vs. Marlins

Cincinnati Reds vs. Miami Marlins (6:40 pm ET)

Two indicators for a good NFRI bet are pitchers with good first-inning numbers and lineups that do not score much in the first inning. Both of those boxes are checked here. Sandy Alcantara will be getting the ball for Miami. It should come as no surprise that the best pitcher in baseball this year has been dominant in the first inning. Through 21 starts, Alcantara holds a 1.71 ERA with 0.90 WHIP in the first inning. Tonight he also gets to face a Cincinnati lineup that ranks 24th in first-inning runs per game on the road this season. Alcantara is the A-side of this NRFI.

Who makes this play interesting is the starter for Cincinnati, Mike Minor. Minor has been knocked around this season as he enters with an ERA of 6.31 and a WHIP of 1.58. Although, what may surprise you is that he’s been good in the first inning. Through ten starts, Minor holds a 1.80 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in the first. On top of that, he gets to face the second worst lineup in the majors when it comes to first-inning scoring in Miami. So let’s enjoy Alcantara’s dominance in the top half and cross our fingers in the bottom half.

Pick: NRFI -155

What are Player Props?
Player props refer to wagers that bettors can make based on player performance in a specific game. The majority of player props are built around the most common statistical benchmarks for a specific sport such as yards and touchdowns in football. Most player props are straight over/under plays that open at or near -110 and are adjusted based on where the money lands.
