Shayne Trail breaks down his favorite NRFI/YRFI bet of the day below, but you can follow all of his bets in the Action Network app.
|Matchup||Z. Wheeler (Phillies) vs. K. Wright (Braves)|
|First Pitch||4:35 p.m. ET|
After picking up an upset type of win Tuesday, the Phillies will send out one of their aces in Zack Wheeler. Already 1-0 to the NRFI in the postseason, Wheeler is now 23-3 to the NRFI in 2022 with an 11-2 road NRFI split.
The Braves, in a very important game, will send out Kyle Wright, who is 22-8 to the NRFI with a near-perfect 15-2 home and NRFI split.
Wheeler's most important matchups today will be against Dansby Swanson, who is 6-for-37, Ronald Acuña Jr., who is 8-for-34, and Travis d’Arnaud, who is 5-for-17.
Wright's most noteworthy matchups will be against Rhys Hoskins, who is 3-for-11, Kyle Schwarber, who’s 0-for-8, and Nick Castellanos, who's 0-for-6.
The Phillies are still one of the worst offensive teams when scoring on the road in the first inning, Wheeler is today's best NRFI option, and Wright has excellent numbers against
FanDuel is offering a fair price tag of (-132) With the Braves riding an 8-2 NRFI streak in their last 10 games, look for the trend to continue once more.
Pick: NRFI -132 (FanDuel)
|Matchup||Y. Darvish (Padres) vs. C. Kershaw (Dodgers)|
|First Pitch||8:37 p.m. ET|
Yu Darvish is 20-8 to the NRFI with a measly 11-6 road NRFI split. The Dodgers will counter with their veteran Clayton Kershaw, who is 19-3 to the NRFI with a perfect 11-0 home NRFI split.
Darvish's most notable matchups today will be against Freddie Freeman, who is 7-for-22, Mookie Betts at 5-for-26, and Justin Turner, who is 4-for-22. Kershaw's matchups will be against Manny Machado, who is 9-for-35, Brandon Drury, who is 3-for-20, and Juan Soto, who is 0-for-8.
The Dodgers scored two runs in the first inning Tuesday. Darvish is a different pitcher on the road, especially early on in games.
With this side of the NRFI being in question, I would pass or play the value on the YRFI at (+120) over on DraftKings.
Pick: Pass (Consider YRFI +120 at DraftKings)
As always, six outs to glory…
