There’s plenty of action throughout the day on the diamond, but today’s goal is targeting later games with better first inning value. Be it a No Run First Inning or a Yes Run First Inning bet, the aim is to combine recent hitting and pitching trends, ballpark data, and the first inning moneyline tool at OddsShopper. These are truly the quickest sweats in baseball, only needing the first six outs to cash! Here are the best value plays for tonight’s action with the best NRFI bets for Wednesday, July 13.

Red Sox vs. Rays Pick | Claim $200 FREE at BetMGM
Tampa Bay is a solid home favorite to take down the first inning, as OddsShopper has them -150 compared to the +120 Red Sox. It’s a great tool to have along with the rest of the data used in making these plays. Tampa scores 0.70 runs per first inning (RPFI) at home, tied for third best in MLB. Still, despite that season-long clip and them being a heavy favorite to win the first, BetMGM still has YRFI at +120 odds. The Rays are also beatable in the first, giving up 0.57 RPFI at their home park. Even the Red Sox are scoring at a higher clip away from Fenway, averaging 0.58 RPFI on the road. While Shane McClanahan has been dominant for the majority of the season, his counterpart in Josh Winckowski has not.

Reds vs. Yankees Pick | Claim $200 FREE at BetMGM
Despite losing last night to the Reds at home, the Yankees still plated two runs in the first inning — cashing this play last night. Back again, both this series and another play in the first, the Yankees send Luis Severino to the hill to face the Reds. Cincinnati was held scoreless last night in the first, and that should continue tonight against Severino — serving up a 3.11 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. In fact, he hasn’t given up a first inning run at home since May 10 against the Jays — five starts ago. Mike Minor is a problem, not for Aaron Judge and the rest of the Yankees lineup, rather the Reds themselves. He’s the key in getting through the first unharmed, as he’s kept both the Giants and Diamondbacks scoreless through one in both of his road starts.

White Sox vs. Guardians Pick | Claim $200 FREE at BetMGM
Neither pitcher tonight is working with an ERA below 5.00 nor a winning record despite each having a minimum of seven starts. Lucas Giolito has the slight edge over Aaron Civale, but neither has pitched well this year for the most part. The White Sox come off a two-run first inning and are averaging 0.47 RPFI on the road. OddsShopper has this fairly tight, with the White Sox being a close -120 favorite to win the first inning, compared to the Guardians at -110 odds. Both teams will have scoring chances, as indicated by the line and a reflection of the pitching matchup. The White Sox give up 0.47 RPFI on the road and are surrendering an average of 0.67 RPFI over their last three games. That’s the same number the Guardians are giving up to visiting opponents in the first inning over their last three contests.
