Yesterday was a great day betting the MLB for me, but there is always a way to be better. My only miss was my No Run First Inning Bet. So, now we have a chance to do even better today and go 100% on my MLB bets. Or at least on my NRFI and YRFI bets today.

Best NRFI Bet Today

Rays vs. Red Sox (+106)

The Tampa Bay Rays are going with a bullpen day today and I like targeting those for an NRFI bet.

JT Chargois hasn’t given up an earned run in his 2.2 innings he has pitched this year. That is a tiny sample size, but Tampa trusts him as an opener clearly and he should be able to get through the first today. 

Michael Wacha starts for Boston and while I’ve predicted regression coming for him, I don’t think it will hit right off the bat against the middling Rays lineup.

Best YRFI Bet Today

Rockies vs. Mets (-106)

Chad Kuhl has to face one of the better offenses in baseball right now. They are top ten in OPS and runs in the past week and for the year they are a top five run producing offense. Kuhl’s ERA has blown up in the past few starts before being out with an injury. He has not pitched since August 3, when he gave up nine runs in five innings.
