The Atlanta Braves and the Los Angeles Dodgers will face-off an important series this weekend. All odds for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Braves have been absolutely rolling and are in good position to make the playoffs. They are 35-27 at home this season and sit 4 games in back of the Nationals for the division. The Braves will start Tommy Hanson tonight who is making his return from the 15 day DL. For the season Hanson has pitched to a 4.29 ERA in 126 innings of work.
The Dodgers had a very fast start to the season, slipped a little bit, and now find themselves back in the playoff run. They lead the NL West by half a game and will be looking to increase that lead this weekend. They are led on offense by Matt Kemp who is hitting .355 and one of their best pitchers all season has been Chris Capuano who pitches tonight. He won his last time out and overall is pitching to a 3.11 ERA in 150 innings of work.
Atlanta is 12-3 in their last 15 home games, 27-10 in their last 37 games overall, and 5-1 in Hanson’s last six home starts. Los Angeles is 4-1 in their last five games overall, 6-1 in their last seven games against the NL East, and 5-1 in Capuano’s last six starts against the NL East.
We like we have seen from Capuano and think Hanson is a quality pitcher as well. Give us the under for total runs scored in this game at the sports book.
