Corbins Burnes & Justin Steele

Brewers vs. Cubs, 8:05 p.m. ET

There's NRFI value today at iconic Wrigley Field when the Chicago Cubs host the Milwaukee Brewers.

Justin Steele will start for the Cubs, and he boasts a commendable 20-4 record to the NRFI this season, with an equally remarkable 11-3 home NRFI split. Steele is 40-8 to the NRFI since 2022, with an astounding 24-4 home NRFI split over that span.

Notably, Steele exhibits great proficiency when facing batters for the first time in the order, conceding just a .205 average across exactly 200 at-bats. He has had success against key Brewers batters such as Rowdy Tellez (1-9), William Contreras (2-7), Willy Adames (5-19) and Victor Caratini (1-10).

Brewers veteran right-hander Corbin Burnes will counter Steele, and he has an impressive 18-8 NRFI record this season, including an 11-3 road NRFI split. This extends Burnes' NRFI dominance to 24-7 when pitching on the road since 2022.

Much like Steele, Burnes shines when facing batters in their initial at-bats, holding them to a .199 average across 206 at-bats. Reflecting on past encounters against Chicago Cubs' hitters, Burnes has shown his dominance against the likes of Patrick Wisdom (1-12), Ian Happ (5-20), Cody Bellinger (3-15) and Yan Gomes (0-5).

This NRFI selection is priced at -135 on DraftKings, and be sure to use the 25% profit boost they are offering today on this game!

As always, six outs to glory…
