The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves meet Tuesday in MLB action atTruist Park. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Preview
The Los Angeles Dodgers have scored 18 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 straight games. The Dodgers have won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Freddie Freeman leads the Dodgers with 64 hits and 31 RBI, while Mookie Betts and James Outman have combined for 84 hits and 57 RBI. Bobby Miller will make his major league debut when he gets the ball tonight. Miller was 10-10 with a 3.79 ERA and 227 strikeouts in his minor league career.
Atlanta Braves Betting Preview
The Atlanta Braves have scored 12 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 8 games. The Braves have won 9 of their last 13 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Ronald Acuna Jr. leads the Braves with 62 hits and 27 RBI, while Ozzie Albies and Austin Riley have combined for 91 hits and 53 RBI. Spencer Strider gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 2.96 ERA and 86 strikeouts this season. This will be Strider’s second career game against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 61-24 in their last 85 Tuesday games and 96-45 in their last 141 overall. The Braves are 45-15 in their last 60 during game 2 of a series and 38-14 in their last 52 Tuesday games. The over is 4-1 in Dodgers last 5 overall. The over is 5-2 in Braves last 7 overall. The Dodgers are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Atlanta.
Bobby Miller is considered a top-20 prospect and expected to become a top of a rotation starter, so he's not your typical pitcher making his big league debut. However, I do have a thing where I don't like to bet pitchers making their first career start. Also, this isn't the easiest debut on the road against a stacked Braves lineup. Spencer Strider has been fabulous through 51.2 innings. I have to lean Braves because I know what I'm getting, and of course I lay the RL to shave the juice.
