This National League contest includes a team at the top, and the bottom of the league.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are off to a hot start this far into the long season.
The Braves are looking for a cure to this bad showing they have been having.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The L.A Dodgers have been playing hot so far this season, both offensively and defensively. As a team, the Dodgers are hitting .265 with 8 home runs and 62 RBIS this far in the season.
The Dodgers are led by 3 hitters hitting above .300. Enrique Hernandez is leading the team in average and home runs while hitting .400 with 2 home runs so far. The young outfielder Yasiel Puig is hitting .365 with 5 RBI’s and 5 extra base hits.
Adrian Gonzalez is hitting .314 with 8 RBI’s.
The big lefty Alex Wood is taking the mound for the Dodgers. Wood is currently 1-1 this season, pitching 12 innings with a .450 E.R.A and 6 strikeouts.
After a rough first start, Wood came back in a victory against Arizona where he pitched 7 innings while giving up only 1 run in a victory.
The Atlanta Braves are going to be one of the league’s worst this season, where they are currently last in the NL East. The Braves have only hit 3 home runs this season and hitting a dismal .208.
The only bright spot is Nick Markakis right now. Markakis is hitting .333 and 12 RBI’s with 9 doubles already this season. He is paced by Adonis Garcia hitting .286. There isn’t another player on this team with more than 7 hits on the season.
The Braves are putting Matt Wisler in for the start on Tuesday. He is 0-1 with a 4.61 with 2 starts. Oddly, Wisler was last seen in relief on Sunday where he threw 1 inning for the Braves.
Wisler’s last start he was defeated by Washington pitching 6 innings of below average baseball.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
This game has the potential to be a blow out in the makings. The Braves cannot hit the baseball outside of Markakis, and they can’t find their identity on the mound yet, trying to figure out who is a starting pitcher and who is a reliever.
I look for the Dodgers to start this series hot and take an easy win in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers ML & Strong LEAN Over
I’m always iffy to take an under on a team like Toronto or Boston, as both are capable of scoring 5+ runs in a single inning. I think we see 3 scoreless innings before Toronto gets to Price, and that will be enough for Estrada to work with
