MLB NRFI & YRFI Odds, Picks: Today's Model Predictions

Wednesday, May 15
3:40p.m. ET
NRFI -108 (Play to -125)

Starting Pitchers: Andrew Abbott vs. Brandon Pfaadt

The 8.5-run total in this game typically equates to a roughly 50% chance of the NRFI hitting, ignoring all other factors. Of course, those other factors tip the odds considerably.

Both pitchers involved have solid underlying numbers early in games, with expected FIP marks in the 3.80 range for both players. Pfaadt has also been better than his overall numbers indicate, with an expected ERA that is more than a run lower than his ERA.

With neither lineup having elite hitters at the top, the pitching matchup is more than enough to play this side of the bet.

Wednesday, May 15
4:10 p.m. ET
NRFI -122 (Play to -135)

Starting Pitchers: Austin Gomber vs. Michael King

While not exactly household names, both starters have overall ERAs in the mid-3.00s this year, with solid first-time-through-the-order numbers.

More importantly, Colorado's offense is terrible overall, while the much better Padres struggle against lefties, boasting just an 87 wRC+ against southpaws.

There's still a slight risk on San Diego's side of the coin, but given the shallow projection on Colorado, it's worth laying the juice here.
