A monster slate tonight across MLB means plenty of value to pick apart in the first innings. There are still carryovers from Monday’s series, plus some new ones that begin tonight. Be it a No Run First Inning or a Yes Run First Inning bet, the goal is targeting slumping starting pitching or taking advantage of a hot top third of a lineup. No more sweating a whole game as six outs is all that’s needed to cash a ticket! Here are the top value plays for tonight’s action with the best NRFI bets for Tuesday, June 14.
Best NRFI Bets Today: No Run First Inning Picks 6/14
Rays vs. Yankees Pick
The Yankees continue to live up to their nickname, as it was bombs away in the first inning on Sunday against the Cubs. Coming off a five-run opening frame, the Bombers now turn their attention to the visiting Rays. Tampa is one of baseball’s best teams in runs per first inning (RPFI) on the road, averaging 0.77, which is good for third best in the league. The Yankees are a problem for any pitcher, and Corey Kluber just hasn’t been good enough to shut down this top part of New York’s lineup. Gerrit Cole will take the hill for the Yankees and have to deal with Tampa’s power, so between the two arms, one of them is bound to give up a run.

Marlins vs. Phillies Pick
Despite the recent victory last night over Miami, the Phillies are still just 7-14 this year against the rest of the division. The Marlins lost their lead late as they saw another scoreless first inning — they are third worst in MLB in RPFI on the road. With the Marlins being a non-factor in the first innings, this is more about whether the hot Phillies bats can get to Trevor Rogers. That’s the good news for the Phillies, as Rogers has been shaky at best over his last four starts with some stinkers mixed in. Philadelphia has a rough history trying to beat the Marlins, so don’t put anything past Zach Eflin to struggle early in his outing.

Twins vs. Mariners Pick
Here is one more perfect matchup between a road team that loves to score early against an opponent with a strong record of RPFI at home. The Twins got on the board early thanks to Byron Buxton’s continued assault on opposing pitching, and Minnesota improved on its league-best 0.90 RPFI on the road. While the Mariners failed to cross the plate in the first inning, they are still third overall in RPFI at home, averaging 0.96 per home game. As bad as it has looked overall for the Mariners this year, they are still a viable threat to score in the first every home game, and Minnesota’s numbers on the road are a true bonus.
