The first inning is full of value with tonight’s slate with these series now being in their middle or second game, adding a sense of familiarity. Be it a No Run First Inning or a Yes Run First Inning bet, the goal with the middle part of any series is to ride or fade hitting at the top of lineups, with the pitching matchup being a final variable. As always, these tickets need just six outs to cash! Here are the top value plays for tonight’s action with the best NRFI bets for Wednesday, June 22.
Best NRFI Bets Today: No Run First Inning Picks 6/22
Guardians vs. Twins Pick
Here come the Guardians. Cleveland has moved atop the AL Central, further distancing themselves from the Twins with a win last night. This is the second-to-last game on a long road trip for Cleveland, where it scored a first inning run last night and is averaging one run in two of its last three road games. Overall, the Guardians average 0.57 runs per first inning (RPFI) away from Cleveland, and the Twins average 0.71 RPFI at home. There should be much wider of a gap between the YRFI and NRFI in this game, but the pitching matchup of Sonny Gray versus Triston McKenzie is enough to even out the distance. Neither of these pitchers give up a consistent amount of runs and are safe to trust tonight.

Giants vs. Braves Pick
This is a perfect match for limited scoring in the opening frame, as Atlanta struggles to score early at home, as do the Giants on the road. Atlanta is tied for second worst in all of baseball, averaging just 0.33 RPFI at home. It’s been bad all season as a result of its park and early-season struggles. The Giants haven’t been able to do much either on the road, with a meager 0.35 RPFI road average. The pitching matchup would have to feature two awful arms who surrender a lot of runs, and neither Carlos Rodon or Charlie Morton fit that bill.

Yankees vs. Rays Pick
There is certainly plenty of offense on display tonight between these two teams, so targeting the pitching matchup is going to be the distinguishing variable. Tampa gives up 0.69 RPFI at home — that’s third worst across MLB. The Yankees only give up a league-best 0.31 RPFI on the road, so don’t expect the Rays to get by Jordan Montgomery in the first inning. New York gets a crack at Shane Baz, who is the easy culprit to give up an early run. If Tampa does slide one past Montgomery, that’s the bonus built in with this play.
