Today, we will create a custom No Runs First Inning (NRFI) bet by analyzing the performances of two pitchers.

This personalized bet can be crafted through sportsbooks such as DraftKings and Barstool Sportsbook. 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 tailor the bet to your preferences.

Phillies ace Zack Wheeler will take the mound first today.

He has continued his dominant NRFI performance from the 2022 season. With an impressive record of 32-6 since 2022, Wheeler has shown exceptional form, particularly at home with a split of 17-2.

Although the Tigers are known for their weaker hitting abilities, their struggles have worsened recently, especially in the first inning. Over the past 14 days, the Tigers have managed only two hits in 47 plate appearances, resulting in a dismal average of .091.

Historically, Wheeler has found success against certain Tigers players, such as Javier Baez (2-for-12), Zach McKinstry (1-for-5), Jake Marsinick (1-for-5) and Jonathan Schoop (0-for-3).

Our second pick is Braves veteran Charlie Morton.

Morton boasts a respectable NRFI record of 8-3 this season. However, we specifically target him for his exceptional home NRFI split, which stands at a perfect 5-0 this season and an impressive 19-2 since last season.

Additionally, the New York Mets have struggled in the first inning over the past two weeks, recording only six hits in 47 plate appearances for a .150 average.

Morton has faced the Mets numerous times throughout his long career, particularly as a division rival. Despite their familiarity with Morton, the Mets have failed to figure him out, with players like Brandon Nimmo (4-for-18), Francisco Lindor (5-for-37), Starling Marte (4-for-19), Mark Canha (3-14), Tommy Pham (1-for-7) and Pete Alonso (6-21) unable to find consistent success against him.

Considering the home NRFI splits of both pitchers, we have an impressive combined split of 36-4 dating back to last season. DraftKings offers this custom NRFI selection at a value of -175 as of writing, while Barstool Sportsbook provides the same odds.

As always, six outs to glory…
