Dodgers Betting Preview
Los Angeles moved to 31-19 after defeating Atlanta. The Dodgers have combined for sixteen runs in the first two wins, and they’ll look to bring the brooms out Wednesday. The Los Angeles offense is scoring 5.04 runs per game, while batting .231, with a .326 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.24 ERA, with a 1.27 WHIP. Freddie Freeman homered during his return to Atlanta in the game one victory, and he’s up to team-leads in BA (.328), hits (64) and runs (41). Mookie Betts has collected a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he’s up to 29 RBI and 33 runs scored. Max Muncy has produced a run in both wins over ATL, and he leads LAD in homers (15) and RBI (34).
Tony Gonsolin (2-1, 1.13 ERA, 19 Ks ) will get the ball for Los Angeles. The fifth-year pitcher has regained form after starting the season in late August. Gonsolin tossed five shutout innings in St. Louis to pick up his second straight victory, and he’s now carrying a 16-inning scoreless streak.
Braves Betting Preview
Atlanta moved to 29-19 after falling to Los Angeles. The Braves have struggled to hold their ground at home versus their fellow NL powers, and they’ll look to respond in game three. The Atlanta offense is scoring 3.55 runs per game, while batting .257, with a .337 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.55 ERA, with a 1.27 WHIP. Ronald Acuna Jr. has a hit in nine of the last ten games, and he’s leading Atlanta in BA (.342) and hits (63). Sean Murphy produced a pair of runs in game one and he’s first on the team in RBI (36). Marcell Ozuna also has nine hits in nine of the last ten games.
Bryce Elder (3-0, 1.94 ERA, 45 Ks) will get the ball for Atlanta. The second-year pitcher came through with another solid outing against Seattle last week, striking out six in six full innings, while allowing just two runs en route to a Braves victory. Elder has only allowed three runs or more in two of his first nine appearances, with five of those being quality starts.
Los Angeles vs Atlanta Trends
LA Dodgers are 28-22 against the spread this season, with a 28-21-1 O/U record. Atlanta is 20-28 ATS this year, with a 29-18-1 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Los Angeles has come out strong and sent a message to Atlanta with a pair of high-powered wins, but I think the host will find a way to get back into the win column here. The Braves are one of the few teams who can match the Dodgers’ energy at the plate, and they should get up for this game with a potential sweep coming their way. Roll with Atlanta in game three.
