Money Line: -205 LA Dodgers
Over the last two seasons the Dodgers have easily been the best LA team. Their leader on the field, Corey Seager, has put together some sweet batting numbers, with a .296 avg, a .394 OBP, and a nice slugging .502. How are the guys from Atlanta's field going to handle that? They aren't going to - that's how. The Dodgers generally find tendencies and adjust to what is being presented - and if they stay even slightly ahead of what the Braves will try to do, they will be fine.
The 33-year-old Nick Markakis is barely squeaking by, hitting just .186 over his recent stretch with 1 homer, 4 RBI and just 8 runs. He is supplying a real lack of hitting value for Atlanta. Not good for their best RBI batter. Atlanta has also been struggling over the last few weeks on the fielding side of things, putting them in 11th in errors.
