The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Monday in a National League MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium. 

The Dodgers come into this game with a 7-2 record overall and they have won six games in a row. During the last six games against the Cincinnati Reds and Minnesota Twins, they outscored their opponent 40-9. On Sunday the Dodgers were able to win 9-1 and this is an offense that has a ton of confidence. Will Smith and Trea Turner have both hit a home run and driven in seven RBI’s. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Braves who sit with a 5-6 record and they had won two games in a row before losing on Sunday night baseball against the San Diego Padres. The offense only scored one run, and that led to the one run defeat. Ozzie Albies and Marcell Ozuna have been the top two players hitting four home runs and driving in eight RBI’s. In this game the Braves need to find a way to get the offense going, and give some run support to Huscar Ynoa.

Getting the start for the Braves will be Huscar Ynoa and in the first start he went three innings against the Nationals giving up seven hits and five runs. 

On the mound for the Dodgers will be Clayton Kershaw and in his first start he was perfect through seven innings when he was pulled. 

The Dodgers are 4-1 in their last five games on Monday. The under is 5-0 in the Dodgers last five games played on Monday. The over is 24-4 in Kershaw’s last 28 starts during Game 1 of a series. The under is 3-0-1 in the Braves last 4 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.

I expect Kershaw is going to have another strong start, and Ynoa is going to get lit up by the Dodgers hot bats. Look for the Braves to struggle to even get on the board, and the Dodgers are going to cruise to the victory. Back the Dodgers on the run line.
