I went with the over in Monday’s matchup between the Braves and Dodgers and it bit me in the butt as the pitcher’s controlled tbe day. Well I’m not getting bit again as I’m expecting an even better matchup here. Ian Anderson’s been stellar since joining the Braves’ starting rotation, posting a 1.95 ERA in his last six regular season starts and following that up with 11.2 scoreless innings to start the postseason with 17 strikeouts. On the other hand, you have Clayton Kershaw who looks like Cy Young award Kershaw and now the typical postseason Kershaw we’ve become accustomed to seeing in years past, with three runs allowed in 14 innings with 19 strikeouts and in three past playoff starts against Atlanta, Kershaw has a 0.43 ERA. This could be a 2-1 game no matter which way you slice it, so give me the under as my premium pick for this game.
