This NRFI bet is different from a traditional NRFI, as it combines two separate half-innings from the first innings of two different games. This approach allows you to have a better edge and tailor the bet to your preferences.
Our first selection for today's custom NRFI features Spencer Strider, the ace of the Atlanta Braves. Strider has had an impressive season, including a 12-4 NRFI record. Strider's overall NRFI performance since 2022 stands at an impressive 30-6. When facing batters for the first time through the order, Strider has been magnificent, allowing only a .206 batting average on 27 hits in 131 at-bats.
In previous matchups against Miami Marlins hitters, Strider has thrived, with notable performances against Jean Segura (1-7), Jorge Soler (1-4), Garrett Cooper (1-4), Jazz Chisholm (0-4), Yuli Gurriel (0-3),and Brian De La Cruz (0-3). Additionally, the Marlins have the third-worst first-inning batting average (.220) this season.
