Best NRFI Bets Today 2024 05 21 Jon Gray

The NRFI is one of the most exciting bets in sports, and we have two games that have value in the market. If you’re looking for a parlay, combine the two for +243, but they also have value as straight bets.  

We’re starting with the NRFI in the Rangers vs. Phillies game. Both these offenses are potent, but we believe the pitching will shine. 

The same goes for the Mariners and Yankees NRFI, as both offenses have power, but the pitchers have been very reliable. 

As a new member, you're in for a treat with our exclusive bonuses on FanDuel Sportsbook. Simply place a $5 bet, and you'll instantly receive $150 in bonus bets if the wager wins, a fantastic offer for the baseball season.

Best NRFI Bets Today: Rangers vs. Phillies (6:40 PM, EST)

1st Inning Under 0.5 Runs (-125) at FanDuel

On Tuesday, the Texas Rangers will battle the Phillies in Philadelphia. The Rangers are 24-24 in second place in the AL West, only trailing the Seattle Mariners. The Phillies are the best team in baseball at 34-14, leading the NL East by 5.5 games. 

This matchup is headlined by starting pitchers Jon Gray and Ranger Suarez. These pitchers have a combined 10-1 record with a 1.73 ERA. Even though the offenses are good, the pitchers are better. 

Jon Gray is 2-1 this season, averaging precisely one strikeout per inning. He has a 1.17 WHIP and is coming off a 6.1-inning performance in which he gave up four hits and no earned runs. In Gray’s last 19.1 innings, he has only surrendered three earned runs with three walks.

The Phillies are going with Suarez in this matchup who still has not lost a game this season. He has a perfect 8-0 record with a 1.37 ERA. The pitcher has struck out 58 batters in 59 innings pitched and holds a 0.76 WHIP.

Suarez has a lot of momentum coming into this contest as he hasn’t allowed a run in his past two games. 

Suarez is the best pitcher in baseball this season, and Gray has also been dominant. Look for these two pitchers to give us a clean first inning to cash this fairly priced NRFI at -125 on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Best NRFI Bets Today: Mariners vs. Yankees (7:05 PM, EST)

1st Inning Under 0.5 Runs (-110) at FanDuel

For our second NRFI on Tuesday, we are going with Seattle vs. New York. The Mariners are 25-22 this season, leading the AL West by 1.5 games. This lead could fade if the Astros start to deliver, but Seattle has done an excellent job sustaining success. 

The Yankees are also in first place, leading the Orioles by two games in the AL East. This matchup consists of two pitchers with a combined record of 6-1. 

The Mariners are starting Bryan Woo, who is 1-0 this season with a 0.93 ERA. Woo has only given up one earned run this year in 9.2 innings. 

He has struck out eight batters and has a 0.62 WHIP. In 2024, Woo looked dominant in two starts against Kansas City and Oakland. 

The Yankees are going with Clarke Schmidt, who is 5-1 with a 2.49 ERA and has struck out 55 batters in 50.2 innings this season. He is one of many pitchers for the Yankees who have filled the void without Gerrit Cole. 

In Schmidt’s last three starts he has thrown 19.2 innings only allowing 12 hits and three earned runs. Schmidt has shown great strikeout ability this season and has not been walking batters, which is key to cashing an NRFI bet.

These two pitchers have been dominating the strike zone and keeping walks to a minimum, which is what we look for when taking an NRFI. Look for these two pitchers to have a nice and easy first inning to help us cash our second parlay of the night.
