The Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers face off on Friday in an MLB showdown at Dodger Stadium.

Braves Continue to Stay Hot

The Braves have basically been on a constant heater all season, and this week has been no different. The Braves faced off against the Rockies in a three game series and they were able to win all three games. The pitching only gave up eight runs total in the three games and they are going to need that strong pitching again here. On the mound for the Braves will be max Fried who sits with a 5-1 record and an ERA of 2.85. In his last start against the Giants he went six innings giving up six hits and two runs. 

Dodgers Slept On?

The Dodgers are still one of the best teams in baseball, but it doesn’t seem they have gotten enough attention for how how well they have played. Against the Diamondbacks in the last sereis the pitching was strong giving up only five runs total, and the yare going to need strong pitching again here. The Dodgers are averaging 5.66 runs while their pitching is giving up 4.37 runs per game. On the mound for the Dodgers is Julio Urias who sits with an 11-7 record and an ERA of 4.41. In his last start against the Red Sox he did struggle a bit giving up eight hits and six runs and three home runs. 

Shane’s Free Pick

This is a big series for both teams, as this could end up being the National League Championship series in the playoffs, but it will be Braves who pick up the first wins. Fried has been so dominant heading into this game compared to Urias who is coming off a start where he gave up six runs. The Braves offense is going to hit a couple of long balls off of Urias and that will be the difference as the Braves secure the win. Back the Braves on the money line.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
