Los Angeles Dodgers
Los Angeles continues to look like the favorite to represent the National League in the World Series this season. With all do respect to everyone else in the league, good luck.
The Dodgers are loaded in every aspect of the game. Including the starting pitching staff which tightened up the rotation, adding Yu Darvish for their postseason run.
Alex Wood (12-1, 2.38 ERA) will start for the Dodgers. Wood has been lights out this season, but not so much in his last four starts. Despite his 3-1 record over his last four, Wood’s ERA gone up to 4.01 over those starts. He faced the Braves during that span as well, taking a 12-3 home loss. His worst outing of the season.
Atlanta has no answer for the loaded Dodgers. The Braves know what it takes to beat Alex Wood, as they did on July 21st in Los Angeles.
Atlanta got nine runs on nine hits in 4.2 innings and hit two home runs against Wood in the 12-3 win. The Braves hit .391 against him in that outing.
Sean Newcomb (1-5, 4.50 ERA) will make his first start of the year against the Braves. He has not won a game since June 27th and the Braves have lost four straight games Newcomb has started.
In his last four starts, he has pitched 23.2 innings, allowing 27 hits, 20 runs (all earned), four home runs, 17 walks and 27 strikeouts. Newcomb is 0-3 with a 7.61 ERA in those starts.

Free Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Dodgers are loaded. Unless they decide to sit most of the lineup for rest, take the Dodgers on the road. Wood had his worst start of the year against the Braves. I expect him to get a bounce back win in Atlanta.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Newcomb has been prone to give up runs recently, and the Dodgers have been scoring however they want over their last 40 games. Take the under. Los Angeles will get runs, but it will be tough for Atlanta to do so the second time around against Wood.
