LOS ANGELES – The Atlanta Braves were able to win both of the first two games of the NLCS, but now that the series heads to Los Angeles, the Dodgers are expected to take home Game 3 in a low-scoring affair.
Best Game Line: UNDER 7.5 Runs
The Atlanta Braves have been in low-scoring games all postseason. The average total of their games is 5.33 runs and four of their last six games overall have gone UNDER the listed total set by legal betting sites.
Dodgers Vs. Braves Total Odds
- OVER 7.5 EVEN
- UNDER 7.5 -120
The Los Angeles Dodgers’ games haven’t been much higher scoring as their average total is 6.0 runs per game this postseason with five of their seven games going UNDER this number. Charlie Morton (14-6, 3.34 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) and Walker Buehler (16-4, 2.47 ERA, 0.97 WHIP) have both been solid pitchers the entire season and fared well against their current opponents.
Morton has faced Los Angeles twice this season and has combined for 11.0 innings pitched and three earned runs, while Buehler has faced Atlanta just once and recorded 7.0 innings and two earned runs when doing so.
Best Game Prop: No Run In First Inning
Both pitchers are spectacular in the first inning. Morton has a 1.93 ERA in the opening frame this season while Buehler has a 1.64 ERA and .113 batting average against. Barring a home run, there shouldn’t be a run put on the board early in this one.
Run Scored In First Inning Odds
- Yes +110
- No -145
The Dodgers tied for the lead in the fewest first-inning runs allowed per game in the regular season with 0.39 while the Braves were not too far behind with an average of 0.54 runs allowed per first inning.
Best Player Prop: Walker Buehler Strikeout Total
Buehler is a remarkable pitcher who excels at preventing runs but isn’t the most efficient in registering strikeouts. Those betting on the MLB can find his strikeout total set at a number he hasn’t been able to reach too often.
Walker Buehler Strikeout Total
- OVER 5.5 EVEN
- UNDER 5.5 -130
Buehler has hit six strikeouts just once in his last nine outings. He’s averaging 0.89 strikeouts per inning since the start of September, meaning he’d need to complete about seven innings of work to reach this mark.
TBS will have coverage of the game starting at 5:08 p.m. EST.
