ATLANTA – The evening slate of the MLB playoffs on Tuesday consists of two potential elimination games. The Atlanta Braves and Milwaukee Brewers will play one another as well as the Los Angeles Dodgers facing off against the San Francisco Giants.
Atlanta Braves To Close Out Milwaukee Brewers
The odds for this game have recently seen some solid line movement in response to the announcement of the starting pitchers. Before the pitching matchup was announced, regulated sports betting sites listed the Atlanta Braves as (-140) betting favorites with the Milwaukee Brewers coming back at (+120). Now, the odds have changed a bit.
Braves Vs. Brewers Moneyline Odds
- Atlanta Braves -155
- Milwaukee Brewers +130
Charlie Morton (14-6, 3.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) and Eric Lauer (7-5, 3.19 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) are set to start and given the pitching choices, it probably makes sense for the line movement to swing a bit in Atlanta’s direction. Morton will be on three days rest after his six-inning, two-earned run performance in Game 1. He has not thrown on short rest in 13 years which could leave the door open to Brewers’ sports bettors cashing in on a nice payday.
The first pitch is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. EST and can be seen on TBS.
San Francisco Giants One Win Away From NLCS
The San Francisco Giants have a 2-1 series lead over the Los Angeles Dodgers and will have a chance to eliminate their NL West opponent with a win tonight. MLB betting sites refuse to give the Giants the shorter betting line despite their continued success.
Giants Vs. Dodgers Moneyline Odds
- San Francisco Giants +140
- Los Angeles Dodgers -160
Anthony DeSclafani is the confirmed pitcher for the Giants, while the Dodgers have yet to name their starting pitcher. Once Los Angeles releases who their starter is, these odds are likely to see some movement, but it’s fair to say that San Francisco has value on their betting line to begin with.
Sportsbooks have continuously undervalued the Giants this season in comparison to the Dodgers and even with the team’s back to the wall on the brink of elimination, the Dodgers are still listed as the favorites. San Francisco has had the better record overall, the better head-to-head record, and is now leading the series. Bet on the Giants for this one.
TBS will have coverage of the game beginning at 9:07 p.m. EST.
