Ricky's 7* play on Atlanta.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Braves are 7-1 in their last eight playoff games.
- The Braves are 5-2 in their last seven games versus a left-handed starter.
- The Dodgers are 1-4 in the last five meetings.
Verdict: Starting pitching might not be as big a factor in this game.
