Framber Valdez & Tyler Glasnow

Astros vs Marlins, 6:40 p.m. ET | Rays vs Giants, 9:45 p.m. ET

Our first custom NRFI selection today points to Houston Astros' ace, Framber Valdez. In this ongoing season, Valdez boasts a commendable 19–3 NRFI record, further enhanced by a near-perfect 8–1 road NRFI split. This solidifies Valdez's away NRFI record at 23–3.

When contending with batters during their first time through the order, Valdez's performance shines, permitting a mere .175 average over 189 at-bats. In his previous encounters with Miami Marlins hitters, Valdez has effectively held his ground, stifling Jake Berger at 0–5, Luis Arraez at 0–3, Brian De La Cruz at 0–2, and Jon Berti at 0–3.

An advantageous factor for Valdez today lies in the Marlins' struggles as one of the weakest first-inning hitting teams in baseball. This season, their overall NRFI percentage is at 80%.

Our second custom NRFI selection revolves around Tampa Bay Rays' ace, Tyler Glasnow. In the current season, Glasnow commands an 11–1 NRFI record, coupled with a perfect 5–0 road and NRFI split. This cements Glasnow's NRFI record at 13–1 since 2022.

Similar to Valdez, Glasnow excels when confronting batters during their first encounter, conceding only a .200 average across 100 at-bats. Glasnow's track record showcases his mastery over hitters such as Michael Conforto at 0–9, Joc Pederson at 1–6, Thairo Estrada at 0–2, and Brandon Crawford at 1–4 from the San Francisco Giants lineup.

This customized NRFI is priced at (-165) on DraftKings.

As always, six outs to glory…
