The probable starting pitchers for this one are Derek Lowe for Atlanta and Jon Garland for the Dodgers.
The Dodgers lost 9 out of their first 15 MLB baseball betting matchups and were just 3-4 at Dodger Stadium. LA went under the total in just 4 of their first 15 games.
Los Angeles was ranked a poor 26th for run production and an even worse 27th for staff earned run average as its becoming more clear why Joe Torre retired as manager at the end of last season.
With the McCourt’s still fighting over ownership in their divorce case and Dodger Stadium being considered a war zone it is not a good time to be a Dodger fan.
The Braves were 7-8 with the MLB betting odds to begin the season and went over the total in just 5 of those games.
Atlanta was 3-4 on the road and was struggling to generate offense as they ranked 25th in the major leagues for run production which wasted the fine efforts of the pitching staff that was ranked 6th for earned run average. Veteran Chipper Jones had a solid start with a .327 batting average while Alex Gonzalez had 3 home runs.
The Braves have lost 3 of Lowe’s last 5 starts against the Dodgers with 3 of those games going under the total. The Dodgers have lost 3 of Garland’s last 5 starts against the Braves with 3 of those games also going under the total.
Heading into this series the Braves had won 8 out of their last 11 games against the Dodgers. Atlanta got the money in 5 of their last 7 games at Dodger Stadium and the series went over the MLB betting total in 6 of the last 8 games between the teams in LA.
