Atlanta Braves vs LA Dodgers Prediction

The LA Dodgers are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home, and it doesn't hurt to have Tyler Glasnow on the mound, who has clearly settled into his new team. However, we're getting plus money with the Braves, and that's something that's not going to happen much this season. I don't care who the opponent is or what the pitching matchup looks like, the Braves in the underdog spot is hard to turn down. Bryce Elder has also been sharp through 12 innings, for whatever that's worth. Still, the Braves as underdogs is a spot I'm looking to back based on the value.
