Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Brewers vs. Cardinals

The Cardinals earned a 3-1 win last night and extended their divisional lead to 1.5 games over the Brewers in the Central. The Red Birds see Adam Wainwright take the ball tonight while the Crew counters with Corbin Burnes in this game scheduled for 7:15 p.m. ET from Busch Stadium. 

Burnes has been electric this season as he makes a run at his second straight Cy Young award. The right-hander comes in at 8-5 with a 2.45 ERA (6th) and 0.93 WHIP (4th) over 22 starts in 2022. Most recently, Burnes went 6.0 innings against the Reds and allowed just one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out nine. 

Wainwright has been a stable arm for the Cardinals this season and comes in at 8-8 with a 3.42 ERA (31st) and 1.24 WHIP (45th) over 22 starts. The veteran right-hander took on the Yankees last time out and got tagged for six earned runs on eight hits and four walks over 4.0 innings. He took a no-decision in the 12-9 win over New York. 

Despite the recent clunker from Waino, he’s been very dependable this year. He allowed just one earned run over the two prior starts, spanning 14.0 innings against the Cubs and Blue Jays. I like for him to bounce back this afternoon in a key divisional game. It’s also worth noting that Wainwright carries a 2.47 ERA at Busch Stadium this year, and opponents are hitting just .239 against him. With Burnes nowadays, you just expect that he’s going to turn in a quality start each time he toes the rubber. The righty has dominated St. Louis this season, posting a 0.00 ERA against them over 14.0 innings and limiting them to a .085 batting average. Let’s lock in NRFI in this game tonight.
