There's a ton of MLB games on the slate today and a variety of bets with value to choose from. Our team at BetSided has you covered from every angle with previews across the board, so we're prepared to help you enjoy your Sunday with loads of dollars in your pocket.

Who doesn't love a little instant gratification, though? I've got a few games presenting value in the first inning. Will a run be scored in the first inning or not? We don't have to wait nine innings for a pay-out with these wagers, so instant gratification will soon be our reward.

Using the odds from our friends at WynnBET Sportsbook, let's check out the best No Run First Inning (NRFI) and Yes Run First Inning (YRFI) bets of the day:

Best NRFI and YRFI Bets Today

Rangers vs Astros YRFI (-115)

I explained in detail why I expect runs early in this matchup in my preview, but just know that both of these starting pitchers STINK. Taylor Hearn and Jose Urquidy both rank in the bottom four percent in MLB in expected ERA and have been hit hard early and often.

Each lineup is dangerous, and with neither pitcher inspiring any confidence, I love the chances for a first inning run. Texas allows a first-inning run over 41% of the time on the road and a run has been scored in the first inning in two of the last three games for both squads. Those trends should continue here.

Braves vs Marlins NRFI (-125)

Ian Anderson and Sandy Alcantara are both on a tear, with Anderson amassing a 2.72 ERA over his last six starts and Alcantara surrendering just two runs and five hits over his last 15 innings. Both teams rank in the bottom-seven in MLB in first inning run scored percentage and with high wind gusts expected, I anticipate another low-scoring affair.

The Braves score a first inning run just 15% of the time on the road while the Marlins score a first inning run only 17% of the time on the season. With this pitching matchup, we're getting tremendous value here.

Twins vs Royals NRFI (-125)

The Royals are an excellent team to target for these bets, as they score a first inning run only 23% of the time and allow a first inning run in just 27% of their home games. Brady Singer threw seven scoreless innings against the White Sox in his last outing and we've got a lot of wind coming in from center field.

Bailey Ober has allowed only two runs in his last 14.2 innings and should find success against a terrible Kansas City lineup. Minnesota allows a first inning run 20% of the time and I expect an easy cash in this one.
