The Los Angeles Dodgers are 10-0 in their last ten games against the Atlanta Braves at Dodger Stadium. In addition, they often jump on Atlanta early, as the Braves have trailed after the third inning in nine of those ten games.

Betting Impact:

The Dodgers are huge -220 moneyline home favorites in Game 4, per BettingPros consensus odds. The Dodgers made history last night, winning their first postseason game when trailing by three or more runs after seven innings. They had entered the game 0-83 in their previous 83 postseason games when trailing by three or more runs in the eighth inning or later. Now we get to see what kind of mental fortitude the Braves have, as they were five outs away from going up 3-0 in the series. Atlanta is going with a bullpen game tonight, one day after they needed four relievers to pitch the last three innings. With how often they have had to use their bullpen through the first three games, it will be challenging to mix and match enough relievers to keep Los Angeles off the scoreboard all game. The Dodgers counter with 20-game winner Julio Urias, who is 2-0 with a 1.80 ERA in 15 combined regular season innings against Atlanta. However, he was unexpectedly called upon in relief in Game 2 and allowed the Dodgers to tie the game after being unable to protect a two-run lead in the eighth inning.
