Why the L.A. Dodgers are a good bet on the money line?

Dodgers’ starter Rich Hill’s been steady this season. Hill brings an 11-5 record, 3.66 ERA, and 1.12 WHIP into the MLB Playoffs. Because this is his 13th season in MLB, Hill should remain steady in this game against the Atlanta Braves. The Braves bat 2.08 against Rich Hill. If Hill can pitch deep into this game, at least until the 7th inning, the Dodgers should have a shot to close out the Braves on Monday afternoon.

Why the Atlanta Braves are a good bet on the money line?

Atlanta starts pitcher Mike Foltenywicz. Foltenywicz didn’t produce a fantastic record this season, he only went 13-10, but he did end the Braves’ regular season with a fantastic ERA, 2.88. Not only that, but Foltenywicz keeps opposing runners off bases with a strong 1.08 WHIP. He’s faced the L.A. Dodgers 54 times. L.A. bats .254 against Foltenywicz. They shouldn’t have the same success versus Mike Foltenywicz on Monday, though, because he’s already had his bad game, a 4 earned run 2-inning outing against L.A. on Oct. 4.

Final MLB Betting Analysis for Dodgers vs Braves

Can Mike Foltenywicz brush off the Game 1 disaster to throw a fantastic 6 to 7 innings against the L.A. Dodgers in Game 4? That’s the key for the Braves. Foltenywicz has a higher ERA at home, 3.19, then he does on the road, 2.48. However, he allows a lower batting average, .191 to .199. He should pitch a much better game against the Dodgers on Monday then he did 4 days ago. If he does, the Dodgers will lose because Hill shouldn’t go past 5 innings in this. Once Atlanta gets to the Dodgers bullpen, they’ll pick up plenty of runs. NLDS Game 4 Pick: Atlanta Braves
