The Reds are dangerous in this one and in the series because their starting pitching is elite. It is their hitting that held them back.
It is the opposite for Atlanta. They have one of the best lineups in the league but how far they go in the playoffs will be determined by whether their offense keeps pace.
The Reds are in the playoffs but overall this season was a disappointment. They finished with the lowest batting average in the league.
That lack of offense puts a lot of pressure on their pitching. They have bats with plenty of pedigree in Joey Votto and Eugenio Suarez but pretty much the whole team has struggled.
Trevor Bauer has had a wonderful season, leading the National League in ERA with 1.73. He can dominate any opponent and I love the intensity he brings. I am expecting him to pitch well in this spot.
You might think the Dodgers have the best offense in the league but it hard to do much better than Atlanta. They finished second in runs per game, second in average and second in homers. They were first in OPS.
Ronald Acuna Jr. is dealing with a slight wrist injury. I am not sure he is the Braves best hitter but he makes the lineup special with all his tool. There was no more productive duo than Marcell Ozuna and Freddie Freeman this season.
With Mike Soroka out Max Fried became the de facto #1 starter. Most of his numbers have backed that up but he does not dominate lineup. He is more of a pitch to contact type.
The Braves have a top ten bullpen. They need it because their starters do not usually go deep into the game.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
Fried’s numbers look good but Bauer has been much better this season. I love his bulldog attitude and if he is dealing it will be hard to get him out of the game. He can go the distance too. I am banking on him outpitching Fried.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Reds ML +120
To get the win he is going to need a little support from the lineup. I think three runs will do it as he continues the roll he has been on this season into the playoffs.
