The Los Angeles Dodgers are 40-18 in their last 58 meetings with the Atlanta Braves, and had a 4-2 record against them in the regular season.

Betting Impact:

The Dodgers are -130 moneyline favorites, per DraftKings Sportsbook. As of this writing, the Los Angeles Dodgers have not yet announced a starting pitcher. There is a chance they go with Max Scherzer after he recorded the save in their clinching Game 5 win two days ago, but it is not official. Scherzer is 0-1 with a 1.46 ERA in 12.1 innings this postseason. While Scherzer has been incredible in the playoffs this year, Braves starter Max Fried has been fantastic for the last couple of months. Fried led the majors with a 1.74 ERA after the All-Star break. He went 8-2 in that span, and 13 of his 14 outings were quality starts. Fried continued where he left off in the regular season in the NLDS, pitching six scoreless innings in his lone appearance against Milwaukee. Fried faced Los Angeles twice in last year’s NLCS, pitching to a 2.84 ERA despite going 0-1 in those starts. The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last four road games against left-handed starters, and the over is 5-0 in Fried's last five home starts against teams with a winning record.
