The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves meet Friday in MLB action at Truist Park. The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning 6 of their last 8 games. The Atlanta Braves look for a win after winning 18 of their last 21 games.
The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored 26 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 5 of their last 7 games. The Dodgers have won 7 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Trea Turner leads the Dodgers with 84 hits and 51 RBI, while Freddie Freeman and Mookie Betts have combined for 148 hits and 85 RBI. Julio Urias gets the ball, and he is 4-6 with a 2.56 ERA and 62 strikeouts this season. Urias is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA and 14 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.
The Atlanta Braves have scored 21 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 7 of their last 10 games. The Braves have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Dansby Swanson leads the Braves with 79 hits and 41 RBI, while Austin Riley and Matt Olson have combined for 136 hits and 79 RBI. Ian Anderson gets the ball, and he is 6-3 with a 4.35 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. This will be Anderson’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 9-4 in their last 13 road games and 90-42 in their last 132 overall. The Braves are 35-17 in their last 52 home games and 20-6 in their last 26 overall. The over is 4-0-1 in Dodgers last 5 overall. The under is 5-2 in Braves last 7 home games. The Dodgers are 0-5 in the last 5 meetings in Atlanta.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are going to be favored more times than not, and it doesn’t hurt that Julio Urias is on the mound, a pitcher who has allowed 3 earned runs in his last 17.1 innings. Ian Anderson has been a middle of the road guy this season, and he hasn’t been good at home, where he has a 5.84 ERA and .271 allowed batting average in 24.2 innings. With all that said, we’re getting plus money with a Braves team that’s won 18 of their last 21 games. I have to ride the hot hand and side with the Braves at home and the more favorable price.
