Zack Wheeler & Tyler Glasnow

Cardinals vs. Phillies, 7:15 p.m. ET | Yankees vs. Rays, 4:10 p.m. ET

Our first custom NRFI selection for today features Philadelphia Phillies veteran Zack Wheeler. In the current season, Wheeler has excelled with a 20-5 NRFI record, bolstered by a strong 9-2 home NRFI split. This impressive track record brings his overall NRFI performance to an impressive 43-8 since 2022.

Notably, Wheeler's past encounters with St. Louis Cardinals hitters attest to his skill: Tyler O’Neill 0–3, Nolan Gorman 1–5, Tommy Edman 2–11, Willson Contreras 3–12, and Paul Goldschmidt 5–25.

Additionally, Wheeler's advantage is further heightened as Tommy Edman, currently in a slump, is projected to lead off today. Edman has only managed five hits in his last 27 at-bats for a .185 average. Despite the Cardinals' star-studded lineup, their road NRFI rate this season stands at a concerning 72%.

Our second custom NRFI selection today puts the spotlight on Tampa Bay Rays' ace, Tyler Glasnow. This season, Glasnow boasts an impressive 13-1 NRFI record, further enhanced by a 6-1 home NRFI split. This brings Glasnow's overall NRFI performance to an impressive 15-1 since 2022.

Notably, Glasnow's proficiency shines through when facing leadoff hitters, allowing a mere .140 average across 43 at-bats this season. Past encounters with New York Yankees hitters showcase Glasnow's dominance: Harrison batter 1–5, Aaron Judge 2–15, DJ LeMahieu 3–21, and Gleyber Torres 2–13.

Additionally, Glasnow benefits from a favorable circumstance as Harrison's batting form is currently in a slump, managing only three hits in his last 18 at-bats for a .167 average.

This custom NRFI selection is price at (-169) on DraftKings.

As always, six outs to glory…
