Shayne Trail breaks down his favorite NRFI/YRFI bets of the day below, but you can follow all of his bets on the Action Network app.
Gerrit Cole and Justin Steele
Yankees vs Pirates, 6:35 pm ET | Cubs vs. Diamondbacks, 9:40 p.m. ET
Our top NRFI custom pick today features American League Cy Young favorite and New York Yankees ace Gerrit Cole. This season, Cole has compiled an impressive 24-6 NRFI record, further accentuated by a near-perfect 12-1 road split.
Collectively, this solidifies Cole’s NRFI prowess at 26-3 when pitching on the road since 2022. In particular, when facing hitters for the first time in the order this season, Cole has exhibited notable ability, allowing only an average of .206 in 250 at-bats. . To add to his advantage today, Cole has yet to face any of these Pittsburgh Pirates hitters, giving him the element of unfamiliarity.

Our second NRFI custom pick today features potential NL Cy Young runner-up and Chicago Cubs veteran Justin Steele. This season, Steele has displayed a stellar 23-4 NRFI record, complemented by a nearly flawless 9-1 Road NRFI split. This builds on Steele’s impressive NRFI record of 43–8 since 2022.
Historically, when facing Arizona Diamondbacks hitters, Steele has consistently held his own, with notable stats against the likes of Ketel Marte at 1–8, Tommy Pham at 2–7, Christian Walker at 1–8, Lourdes Gurriel Jr. with 1- 3 and Corbin Carroll at 1-3. Additionally, Steele enjoys a clear advantage today, as in his last 25 first-inning plate appearances, the Diamondbacks have only managed to get three hits for a .125 average.
This custom NRFI is priced at (-172).
As always, six outs for glory…
