Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Mets vs. Phillies

It’s a matinee rubber match in Queens between these division foes, with the first pitch set for 1:40 p.m. ET. The Phillies send Zack Wheeler to the bump while the Mets counter with Chris Bassitt. 

Wheeler has been pretty dominant this season as he comes into today’s game with an 11-5 record, 2.63 ERA (10th), and 1.03 WHIP (16th) over 21 starts in 2022. The right-hander has posted four straight quality starts, including a 6.0-inning performance against the Marlins on Tuesday, where he allowed just one earned run on five hits and a trio of walks. Wheeler earned the win, and the Phillies improved to 12-9 in his starts this year. 

Bassitt enters today’s contest at 9-7 with a 3.39 ERA (30th), and 1.12 WHIP (23rd) in 21 starts this year. The right-hander last pitched on Monday against the Reds and surrendered one unearned run on eight hits and a walk over 8.0 innings of work. Bassitt picked up his second win in as many starts in the outing.

These two starters squared off against each other back on May 29th, and each posted quality starts in the 5-4 extra-innings win for New York. Wheeler gave up three runs in the first inning, but just one was earned. The 32-year-old has made two starts against the Mets this year and owns a 1.69 ERA against them and limits their hitters to just a .154 batting average. Each of these guys is in great form, boasting sub-1.50 ERA’s in two starts this month. Let’s ride with NRFI in this N.L. East clash.

Most player props are straight over/under plays that open at or near -110 and are adjusted based on where the money lands.
