Top MLB No Runs First Inning (NRFI) Picks & Odds: Dodgers vs. Rockies

The Dodgers open up a four-game set tonight in Denver against the Rockies, with game one underway at 8:40 p.m. ET. The pitching matchup features Tyler Anderson for Los Angeles and Jose Urena for Colorado. 

Anderson has stepped up significantly, considering the injuries to the pitching staff. The southpaw comes in at 10-1 with a 2.79 ERA (16th) and 1.02 WHIP (15th) over 18 starts. Most recently, he took a no-decision against the Giants, although he went 6.0 scoreless innings and gave up just four hits and two walks. 

Urena was signed by the Rockies in early July after four outings with the Brewers to start the year. The right-hander is 1-2 with a 3.13 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in eight total appearances spanning 31.2 innings. Urena got tagged for six runs (five earned) against his former team on Saturday and took the loss. He allowed six hits and two walks while striking out five. 

Despite the rough outing against the Crew on Saturday, Urena has posted a 3.00 ERA in four starts with the Rockies. One of those starts was a 6.2-inning outing against Los Angeles, where he surrendered just one earned run on five hits and three walks. The Dodgers are 23-86 (.267) against Urena, with Trea Turner going 0-18 (.000), Mookie Betts at 1-5 (.200), and Freddie Freeman at 14-34 (.412). On the flip side, the Rockies are 28-86 (.326) against Anderson. While the team average is high, it’s worth noting Charlie Blackmon is 1-7 (.143), and Kris Bryant and C.J. Cron are a combined 11-30 (.367). The stats aren’t perfect in this matchup, but I think it’s worth a shot with the pretty sizable plus-money payout. Let’s take a shot with NRFI in Denver tonight.
