Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Yankees vs. Red Sox
New York Yankees vs. Boston Red Sox – 7:10 pm ET
The most storied rivalry in baseball is set to add another chapter this weekend, but the first inning of the first game will be surprisingly uneventful. Domingo German will be getting the ball for the Yankees this evening. His numbers are inflated due to being knocked around in his first start of the season, but since then, he’s gone three straight starts without allowing more than two runs. Tonight he gets to face a Boston team that appears to have packed it in as they sold at the deadline, and the future of their stars is unknown. On top of that, the Red Sox are 27th in first-inning runs per game at home this season.
Taking the ball for the other half of the inning will be Nathan Eovaldi. Eovaldi has had his share of struggles since coming off the IL in July, but he’s been great in the first inning this season. He enters this outing with a 2.65 ERA and 1.12 WHIP through 17 starts. He is the counterbalance to the Yankees lineup that is second in the majors in first-inning runs per game on the road. Along with that, this Yankees lineup has hit Eovaldi will in the past as through 198 at-bats, they have a team xBA of .313. However, this Yankees team is not the well-oiled machine we saw in the first half. They have struggled mightily of late and have scored in the first in two of their last three games, so they are due to regress here.
Pick: NRFI +115
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.
