There are always a number of different ways to bet on a Major League Baseball game, but a new trend has emerged during the 2022 season. A No Run First Inning (NRFI) bet has started to become extremely popular as bettors look for games that won’t have any action in the first inning.

There are only four MLB games scheduled for today, but you can find at least three options to look at with this game. Here are three of the top NRFI bets to make on September 26.

Cincinnati Reds vs. Pittsburgh Pirates

The Reds and Pirates are two of the worst teams in baseball this season, and neither team has played in a meaningful game in weeks. Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are using the final few weeks as a chance to play some younger players, and that has led to very little offense.

The Reds just scored eight total runs in a four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers, and they don’t pose a huge offensive threat. Cincinnati will also have to deal with Roansy Contreras of the Pirates, and he is a strikeout machine.

Pittsburgh does have some offensive talent in their lineup, but they have been living off of the home run. Look for the Pirates to get shut out in the bottom half of the first inning for this NRFI bet to cash in.

Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals

It’s a bit risky to take a NRFI bet in a game featuring the Atlanta Braves because that team can score. Atlanta is coming to Washington after an emotional series with the Philadelphia Phillies, and it will take them a while to get going. 

Washington is not a good offensive team, and they got even worse after trading away Juan Soto and Josh Bell at the trade deadline. The Nationals are limping into the end of the year, and they aren’t going to do much hitting in this game. 

Atlanta will eventually break out and do some damage in this game, but it will come after the first inning.

Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox

AL East rivals meet up in Boston on Monday night to begin a series when the Red Sox host the Baltimore Orioles. Both of these teams are going to miss out on the playoffs this season after each team made a nice run at one point or another.

Baltimore is clearly the better offensive team in this game, but they are also coming to Boston from Houston. That’s a long trip, and the Orioles are going to struggle to find some offense early in this game.

The Red Sox are in the middle of a long losing streak, and they just haven’t been able to find any offense of late. Boston is also facing an Orioles team with a good pitching staff, and this is going to be a rough day at the plate. 

Fenway Park in late September is also a tough place to hit, and that is going to help this game have zero runs in the first inning.
