MLB Betting Pick and Prediction: Atlanta Braves vs. LA Dodgers – Wednesday, April 20, 2022

by Spooky Express | April 20, 2022 |

The Atlanta Braves enter this game having won three of their last five games including a 3-1 game two win in this series on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Dodgers enter this game having won four of their last five games, but are coming off a game two loss in this series on Tuesday which ended their six-game winning streak.

BookMaker has the Los Angeles Dodgers listed as -130 money line favorites at home against the Atlanta Braves and has set the total for the over/under plays at 8.5 runs. Which team will come away with the series win on Wednesday? Let’s take a look at how these teams performed so far in the series.

Atlanta: Looking to Take Road Series

The Atlanta Braves enter this game with a record of 6-7 which puts them in a tie for 2nd place in the NL East. The Braves have a run differential of -10 runs this season.

In the 3-1 game two win, the Braves managed to score three runs off of 12 hits, which started in the 2nd inning when Travis d’Arnaud hit a solo home run.

The Braves will send Charlie Morton to the mound for the series finale. Morton is 1-1 this season with a 6.1 ERA and has 10 strikeouts.

Los Angeles: Looking to Bounce Back Following Loss

The Los Angeles Dodgers enter this game with a record of 8-3 which puts them in a tie with the Colorado Rockies for 1st place in the NL West. Los Angeles has a run differential of 28 runs which is the 2nd best run differential in the MLB.

In the game two loss, the Dodgers only scored one run off of two hits which came in the 8th inning when Chris Taylor scored a run off of Hanser Alberto’s ground out.

Tony Gonsolin will take the mound for the Dodgers in game three. Gonsolin has yet to factor into a decision this season with an ERA of 1.29 and has 5 strikeouts.

Both teams are 5-5 in the last ten games of the series, however, Los Angeles has outscored Atlanta by an average score of 4.2 to 4 in those contests. The Braves have won two of the last three games and have won by an average of 3.67 to 3.33 in those matchups.

The total is 5-5 in the last ten games of the series with the teams combining for an average of 8.2 runs per game in those matchups. The under has hit in two of the last three games with the teams combining for an average of 7 runs per game in those contests.

This is quickly turning into one of the better rivalries in the MLB as both have ended the opposing team’s playoff run two consecutive seasons with the winner both years going on to win the World Series. This is the rubber match of this season as both teams have won a game apiece. However, I look for the Dodgers to come away with the win at home on Wednesday which is why I am taking the money line for Los Angeles at -130 on BookMaker for this game on Wednesday afternoon.
