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

San Diego Padres vs. Miami Marlins – 6:40 pm ET

With a slate packed with aces, this may be the best pitching matchup on the board. Sandy Alcantara will be taking the mound for the Miami Marlins, and what else can you say about him? He’s arguably been the best pitcher in baseball. He enters with a 2.01 ERA and leads the majors in innings pitched by a wide margin. So it should be no surprise that he’s been lights out in the first inning. Through 23 starts, he has 1.57 ERA and 0.96 WHIP. He’ll also have a great matchup for the top of the first as San Diego has the second-lowest first-inning scoring rate on the road.

On the other side, you have Joe Musgrove. His 2.91 ERA and 1.02 WHIP are excellent, even when compared to Alcantara. However, Musgrove is a lot like Alcantara as he’s been tremendous in the first inning, and he also has a stellar matchup for this evening. Musgrove has a 1.80 ERA and 0.90 WHIP through 20 starts. On top of that, the Marlins are dead last in first-inning runs per game on the season. This is the strongest NRFI play on the slate.

Pick: NRFI -150

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.
