Arizona Diamondbacks (-175) @ Colorado Rockies (+135)

Pitching in this one is Zac Gallen for the Diamondbacks and Ryan Feltner for the Rockies.

Nothing needs to be said about Zac Gallen, he is one of the best pitchers in baseball, and while Sandy Alcantara is robbing him of a Cy Young this year, Gallen’s time is no doubt coming.

Feltner has not been the greatest pitcher in the Rockies rotation, but he has improved in his last few starts.

This line sticks out, as the NRFI in a Zac Gallen game typically runs about (-140), but with Feltner on the other side, the scales tipped. Of Feltner’s last four starts, the Braves are the only team he’s given a run to in the first inning. Fortunately for bettors, Arizona’s lineup can’t hold a candle to Atlanta’s.

So while this bet carries some risk, any bet with + in front will. With the positive payout, this bet is too good to pass up.

No Runs in the First Inning (+110)


Atlanta Braves (-130) @ Seattle Mariners (+105)

Pitching in this one is Jake Odorizzi for the Braves and Marco Gonzales for the Mariners.

The West Coast has been good to the Braves. Before Saturday’s game, the Braves were on an eight-game winning streak and had taken over first place in the National League East.

As for the Mariners, they are in a tight Wild Card race. Seattle, Tampa Bay, and Toronto all hold a wild card slot, and all three teams have 78 wins. So while all three teams should make the playoffs, there is no telling who will finish in which place.

Neither pitcher has been particularly sharp this season, and both have struggles early in games. The YRFI has cashed in eight of Gonzales’ last ten starts and six of Ordorizzi’s previous ten. This is a pretty straight forward bet, there is no reason to overthink it.

Yes, a Run in the First Inning (-125)
