Normally I’m not the first guy to back Kyle Wright, as he’s been beaten up more times than I’d care to admit for Atlanta, but Wright looked good in his last postseason appearance, throwing six scoreless against Miami in the NLDS. Now it’s glaringly obvious that the Braves need extra arms outside of Max Fried and Ian Anderson going forward to keep that rotation strong, but Wright’s given Atlanta a glimmer of hope and with the way the bats are performing, it could give Wright that added shot of momentum. Going against the dodgers is always dangerous and Urias has been alright himself, but this is just his second postseason start and I’ve seen Urias get pounded on the mound just as much as Wright. I just think that between two pitchers that aren’t the most trustworthy pitchers in the world, I’d tend to side with the one getting plus money. It also doesn’t hurt that the Braves have been the better team for the majority of the first two games so far. I’ll take Atlanta and the plus money as my premium pick for this game.
