Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Mariners vs. Yankees

Seattle Mariners vs. New York Yankees (1:05 pm ET)

Gerrit Cole is coming off a tough month of July as he had two starts where he was tagged for five earned runs. However, his stuff has still been at an elite level. He enters this start second in the majors in strikeouts. This afternoon, he gets to face a Seattle lineup without rookie sensation Julio Rodriguez. Without Rodriguez at the top of the order, Cole is set to face Adam Frazier, Jesse Winker, and Eugenio Suarez in the top of the first. Frazier has only faced Cole twice and stuck out in one once. Jesse Winker has actually hit Cole well as he is three for four against him, and so has Eugenio Suarez as he’s hitting .278 lifetime. However, Suarez is a high strikeout candidate, so if Cole can keep Winker and Frazier in the yard, he should have a clean top of the first. Home runs have been the issue for Cole as he’s allowed seven runs on five homers in the first inning through 21 starts this year.

Opposing Cole for the Mariners will be Luis Castillo. Castillo will be making his first start for his new club. Castillo made quite an impression on the league when he dominated the Yankees back in early July. He threw seven innings of one-run ball while allowing just two hits and striking out eight. Now we just need one more clean inning out of him today. Castillo has been solid in the early going this year as he holds a 3.21 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in the first inning. One key thing is that he has yet to allow a home run in the first, which needs to be avoided in the hitter-friendly Yankee Stadium. The Yankees may lead the majors in first-inning runs per game, but that ranking surprisingly drops to third at home, and Castillo has decent career numbers against the top of the Yankees order, so the odds are in our favor.

Pick: NRFI -125

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.
