Let’s take a closer look at the MLB betting odds for Game 3 of this National League Division Series at Dodger Stadium, with the first pitch scheduled for 8:07 p.m. ET on TBS.
Atlanta managed to tie this series at a game apiece with a 4-3 victory over Los Angeles on Friday as +103 home underdogs, while going ‘Over’ the baseball betting total for a second consecutive contest.
The Braves went 40-41 on the road during the regular season—the only MLB division winner that didn’t finish with a winning record in that category.
Los Angeles could easily hold a 2-0 advantage over Atlanta as the series shifts to Southern California, as it has out-hit its current opponent by a 21-11 margin in two games.
The Dodgers are 7-1 in their last eight games following an off day, while the ‘Under’ has gone 6-2 in that situation.
Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran (14-8, 3.20 ERA) finished the regular season by winning his final two games, while he didn’t issue a walk in his last 17.2 innings of work.
The right-hander went 6-4 with a 3.38 ERA in 14 road efforts, surrendering 12 home runs in 88 combined frames.
Teheran will be facing the Blue Crew for the first time in his career.
Dodgers starting pitcher Hyun-Jin Ryu (14-8, 3.00 ERA) was handed a loss in three of his last four efforts, with the offense supplying him just five runs of support over that span, as he looks to bounce back from a 2-1 home defeat to the Colorado Rockies last time out.
The left-hander went 7-4 with a 2.32 ERA in 15 home games, issuing 21 walks and striking out 79 batters in 97 combined frames.
Ryu didn’t record a decision in two efforts against the Braves this season—limiting them to a .224 batting average.
I’m going to recommend that readers back the Braves in their sports picks, as they’ve won eight of Teheran’s last 11 outings versus teams with a winning record.
