Atlanta Braves (Freddy Garcia) +143
Los Angeles Dodgers (Ricky Nolasco) -152
There isn’t such a thing as a series that is really over at 2-1 through three games, but the truth of the matter is that it sure feels that way for the Braves. Not only would they have to win this game as +143 underdogs on the MLB odds, but they would have to come all the way back across the country to win a winner-take-all game against LHP Clayton Kershaw, the best pitcher in baseball and a man who already shut them down in Game 1 of this series. Does Atlanta just fold in this game? We tend to think that they do, especially with RHP Freddy Garcia doing the pitching.
We have no confidence whatsoever right now in Garcia even though he did pitch well in his limited time in the lineup this year for the Braves. However, RHP Ricky Nolasco was a great addition in the middle of the season for the Dodgers. He’s the type of guy that can come in and throw seven innings and allow two runs, getting out of a jam here or there to get the job done. Nolasco doesn’t have to be pretty. He has an offense that is tearing the cover off of the baseball right now, and all of the big time hitters are mashing the baseball and peppering it all over the field. We have no reason not to believe that the Dodgers aren’t going to win this game and probably win it comfortably as well.
