Wagering on the Pittsburgh Pirates hasn’t been a thing in baseball betting for a long, long time. More recently, putting money down on the Chicago White Sox hasn’t proven to be a winning baseball betting strategy at all this season.

When it comes to MLB NRFI betting, it’s the Pirates and the White Sox who are flexing their muscles as the best NFRI teams in MLB.

Both the Pirates and White Sox are a baseball-best 9-1 on the NRFI in their past 10 games. Pittsburgh is facing the Miami Marlins on Thursday. The Marlins are 8-2 on the NRFI over the past 10 games. Stiil, bettors can access odds of +115 on the NRFI in the Pittsburgh-Miami game.
