Atlanta vs. L.A. Dodgers: The Dodgers earned home field advantage by virtue of just two more wins than the Braves, one of which was in Monday’s tie breaker. They also defeated the Braves in five of seven meetings this season.
The Dodgers have three solid starting pitchers in Clayton Kershaw, Walker Buehler and H J Ryu while the Braves’ best starter has been Mike Foltynewicz.
L.A. will be solid favorites in the first two games at home and can be backed if priced at minus 150 or less. More likely, Kershaw will be more heavily favored and he can be played minus the run and a half. Atlanta would be playable only at an unlikely generous price of plus 160 or more against other than Kershaw in L.A.
The call is for the DODGERS to win in 4 games.
