Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers have been the best team in the National League all season. They are currently an astounding 19.5 games in front of the Arizona Diamondbacks in the NL West. They have been a terror for opponents on both sides of the ball. They are first in the National League in scoring (672) and first in runs allowed (458). Cody Bellinger leads the offense despite having come back down to earth recently. Bellinger is hitting .317 with 39 homers and 90 RBI’s. Justin Turner is hitting .292 with 21 homers and 56 RBI’s. Max Muncy has been terrific as well with 28 homers and 79 RBI’s.
On the mound for the Dodgers is Kenta Maeda. Maeda is 8-8 with a 4.12 ERA on the season. After a pair of shaky outings Maeda delivered in his last start. The veteran went seven scoreless innings against Arizona.
The Atlanta Braves have won three straight games and continue to extend their lead in the NL East. Atlanta is 72-50 and are six games ahead of Washington. A big reason for their success has been their offense. Atlanta only trails the Dodgers for runs scored in the National League with 658. Freddie Freeman, Ronald Acuna Jr, and Ozzie Albies have led the way for them. Acuna Jr. has been one of the best players in baseball with 34 homers and 28 stolen bases. Freeman is batting .308 with 29 homers, and Albies has chipped in batting .299 with 18 homers.
The Atlanta Braves will have Mike Soroka on the mound on Friday night. Soroka is 10-2 with a 2.32 ERA on the season. He is certainly a top candidate for the NL CY Young Award. In his last four outings he has allowed only five runs in 25.2 innings.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction: Dodgers ML
In a matchup of the two best teams in the National League, hitting will be the difference. The Dodgers lineup is simply more explosive. Soroka will have success before their bullpen gives up some runs late.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers ML
Kenta Maeda has solid all season. I expect the Dodgers to bounce back after an ugly loss to Miami.Take the Dodgers in a close win at this price.
