Preview

The Los Angeles Dodgers and the Atlanta Braves will play the 2nd game of the series at the Truist Park on Sunday night. The Braves took the win5-3 on Saturday game to tie the series.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 44-26 record and have won 4 of their last 5 games. The team is averaging .247 at bat scoring 5 runs per game while allowing 3.2 runs. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .303 AVG. and 17 home runs. Trea Turner has 51 RBI. 

Tony Gonsolin leads the team with a 1.58 ERA, 64 strikeouts and 9 wins recorded.

Probable Pitcher:

Tony Gonsolin (9-0, 1.58 ERA) will be on the mound for the Dodgers in the 3rd game of the series. Gonsolin took the win against the Reds on Tuesday after pitching five innings while allowing just two runs on three hits, four strikeouts, and one walk. He dominated the Braves earlier this season pitching 6 scoreless innings and earning the win.

Atlanta Braves

The Braves get here with a 42-31 record and have won 3 of their last 4 games. The team is averaging 4.7 runs per game with a .249 at bat while allowing 4 runs. Austin Riley is leading the team with 18 home runs and 41 RBI while Dansby Swanson has the better batting average with .302. 

Kyle Wright leads the pitching staff with a 3.18 ERA, 92 strikeouts and 8 wins recorded with the Braves.

Probable Pitcher:

Spencer Strider (3-2, 3.40 ERA) will be on the mound for the Braves in the 3rd game of the series. In 3.2 innings and a 12-10 loss to the Giants on Tuesday, Strider allowed six earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four. He had no bearing on the choice.

BETTING TRENDS

LA Dodgers are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games.

LA Dodgers are 12-6 SU in their last 18 games on the road.

Atlanta are 11-2 SU in their last 13 games at home.

Atlanta are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing at home against LA Dodgers..

Prediction

There's not much to say for this game except that the Dodgers have the better pitcher obviously, Gonsolin has been insane this season and already beat the Braves earlier this season and with Acuna Jr. questionable I have no doubt of who will win this game. Take the Dodgers to win the series.

PICK: Dodgers ML (-120)
