In Game 2 of the World Series coming off an extra-inning game, the Phillies will send out their ace Zack Wheeler.

In the regular season, Wheeler was phenomenal to the NRFI, posting a 23-3 NRFI record with an 11-2 road NRFI split. When facing teams' leadoff hitters he has dominated, only allowing 11 hits in 73 at-bats, paired with 17 strikeouts.

After allowing the Phillies to come back from a 5-0 deficit, the Astros will send out Framber Valdez. In the regular season, Valdez was 25-6 to the NRFI with a proficient 10-4 home at NRFI split.

Like Wheeler, Valdez has also performed well against teams' leadoff hitters, only allowing 17 hits in 94 at-bats, good for a .181 average.

Valdez's most important matchups will be against Kyle Schwarber, who is 0-for-7, Nick Castellanos, who is 0-for-4, and Rhys Hoskins, who is 0-for-2

FanDuel has this NRFI priced at -132, which is excellent value. After a long extra innings game Friday night, bet on these two NRFI aces to toss a scoreless first inning in Houston.

Pick: NRFI -132 (FanDuel)
