Getting the start for the Braves will be Max Fried and in his one postseason start against the Brewers, he was lights out going six innings giving up three hits and zero runs. He is facing a better offense and the Braves need him to be good again in this one. 

The Dodgers are 5-2 against the spread in their last seven playoff games. The Braves are 4-0 in their last four games overall. The Dodgers are 40-18 in their last 58 meetings against the Braves. The under is 4-0 in the last four meetings. 

When these two teams have faced off the under has been a strong play, and that is going to be the case again in this game. Look for Fried to be lights out, and for the Braves offense to struggle. Back the under to cash.
