MLB picks Monday 6/26 – YRFI & NRFI best bets today: Reds’ Cole Irvin and Twins’ Sonny Gray Stepping Up

Kicking off the Major League Baseball week is a modest 6-game lineup on Monday. As teams transition between series, the spotlight falls on matches like Reds vs Orioles, Twins vs Braves, and Brewers vs Mets. An abundance of choices is available for constructing compelling YRFI/NRFI wagers, as I aim to improve on my weekend’s 3-1 standing.

This market is gaining significant traction amongst baseball bettors. Indeed, it eliminates the necessity of enduring a 3-hour match (or somewhat shorter these days due to decreasing game durations!) to ascertain the fate of your bet. The result is either gratification or letdown, but it’s instant and rests on the first inning.

Below, I present my top YRFI/NRFI picks for Monday. Also, don’t forget to explore all of our MLB picks.

Cincinnati Reds at Baltimore Orioles: NRFI (+115)

In this eagerly awaited series of the season, we anticipate thrilling displays by young, promising players likely to be seen in future All-Star Games. Our betting here primarily hinges on the promising odds. Cole Irvin is set to initiate the match, and despite his full-season figures being skewed by early rough patches, he has demonstrated steady improvement since resuming rotation duties recently.

The Reds, exhibiting average performance against left-handed pitchers, and the Orioles’ home turf’s adverse impact on right-handed hitters should provide a favorable context for Irvin.

This factor should also benefit left-handed Brandon Williamson. Despite Baltimore’s strong 112 wRC+ record against lefties and Williamson’s modest major league performances, we’re largely wagering on the stadium’s effect. We hope Williamson can maintain a first-inning zero on the scorecard. Given Williamson’s past struggles in the initial order rounds, the odds and park effects make this a worthwhile bet.

Minnesota Twins vs Atlanta Braves: NRFI (-110)

Spencer Strider from the Braves has predominantly excelled in 2023, despite stumbling during two mid-June encounters. He regained his standard form last Wednesday in Philadelphia, delivering a powerful 6.0 innings, 1-run game with 9 strikeouts and no walks. Strider has kept a clean sheet in the first innings of four out of his last five starts. Given the Twins’ line-up’s meager experience against Strider (just three lifetime at-bats), I predict early game struggles due to lack of familiarity.

Sonny Gray, stepping up for Minnesota, is anticipated to effectively restrain Atlanta’s potent line-up. Gray’s impressive 2023 performance includes a 4-1 record, a 2.53 ERA, and 84 strikeouts across 81.0 innings. The right-hander had an impressive ten-game streak of NRFIs before succumbing to Boston for a run last week. Expect Gray to kickstart another NRFI streak come Monday night.
