Braves vs Dodgers: NL East vs NL West Preview and Live Odds

Looking to stay within striking distance of red-hot San Francisco, Los Angeles is 5.5 games behind the Giants in the NL West, the Dodgers aim for two straight wins over Atlanta. Los Angeles blasted four solo homeruns, rookie shortstop Corey Seager hit three of them, during their 4-2 victory last night. Following a 1-6 mid-May stumble, the Dodgers have won eight of their last twelve contests.

It’s been a while since an MLB squad finished with a winning percent below .300 (Detroit went 43-119 for a .265 WP in 2003) but two teams are flirting with that low-water mark this season. The Minnesota Twins and Atlanta Braves are sporting identical 16-38 records with exactly one-third of the MLB season in the books. The Braves paltry 168 runs scored is the worst mark in the Majors.

Clayton Kershaw vs Bud Norris: Los Angeles Bettors Have a Huge Pitching Advantage

With Zack Greinke moving to Arizona during the offseason, LHP Clayton Kershaw (7-1 ERA 1.56) is back to being the primary producer in Los Angeles. The numbers are incredible as the Krushinator has allowed 15 earned runs over 86.2 innings pitched. The Dodgers won Kershaw’s six May starts by a combined 22-5 margin - including three complete game shutouts. Enjoy the show.

Facing the daunting task of matching Kershaw, Bud Norris (1-6 ERA 5.71) gets the call for Atlanta here. Norris opened the season as a starter but his 8.74 ERA in April pushed him into a reliever role. With Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz on the disabled list, Norris faces the Dodgers for the first time since the 2012 MLB season. Norris has been decent as a reliever but he is in tough here.

MLB National League Betting Ticket: Following on the heels of a four game winning run in May, we look to keep the good times rolling in June. Suppressing the need for greed, we are backing Los Angeles with a ten-unit wager on the money line posted on the William Hill MLB betting board.
