Time for one of the fastest bets in sports.

Every time a major golf tournament comes around I get so excited to place my bets, but then I remember I have to wait four whole days to cash in. I don’t quite have enough patience for that. A golf tournament is like the poker table in a casino, but No Run First Inning and Yes Run First Inning bets are like the slot machines. Place the bet, wait six outs, count your winnings. 

Odds are available at WynnBET Sportsbook.

Best NRFI Bet Today

Pirates vs. Rockies +138

This is the highest total on the board today, so it might seem counterintuitive to pick it as my NRFI pick today. The Rockies often crush lefties, but Jose Quintana has been good for the Pirates. Probably because he is trying to play his way off of them. His last start was not so good, but I expect a bounce back at least for one inning. 

The bigger reason for this pick is no Bryan Reynolds for the Pirates. He is their best offensive player and with him on the IL the Pirates offense does not pose much of a threat. 

Best YRFI Bet Today

Mariners vs. Rangers +108

The Mariners are the hottest team in baseball. They have won 11 straight games and have done much of it with pitching, but their bats have been hot as well. I love getting Julio Rodriguez in a bet like this, but really it has more to do with the Rangers offense. 

Over the past week, Corey Seager has a 1.599 OPS and five home runs, Leody Taveras has a 1.145 OPS, and Marcus Semien joins them with an OPS north of 1.000. Seager was announced as a participant in the home run derby and might get to work early if his bat stays hot.
