Atlanta Braves          

The Braves tumble into tonight’s matchup sporting an 18-16 record that pegs them as the 2nd best team in the NL East. At the present time the division is led by the Philadelphia Phillies, who own a 1 ½ game lead over Atlanta. With this in mind, it’s clear Atlanta can take the top spot in the division if they’re able to extend their win streak. Unfortunately for Atlanta, tonight’s MLB baseball betting odds are undoubtedly pegging them as the underdog this Monday night. To prove them wrong, Atlanta will be sending none other than Max Fired to the mound. So far this season, Fried is 4-1 and sports a brilliant 2.11 and a 0.99 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Ozzie Albies (7 HR, 18 RBI, .281 BA), Freddie Freeman (6 HR, 19 RBI, .298 BA), and Ronald Acuna Jr. (6 HR, 20 RBI, .294 BA).

Los Angeles Dodgers   

The Dodgers leap into tonight’s action sporting a 22-14 record that pegs them as the best team in the NL West. However, Los Angeles’ reign atop the division is far from secure as they have 2 teams hot on their trail. In fact, the Diamondbacks are but a game behind LA and the Padres are just 2 ½ games behind the Dodgers. Accounting for Los Angeles’ recent mishaps, it’s clear that they need a strong outing at home this Monday night. And to ensure they get it, the Dodgers will be sticking with Walker Buehler here. Buehler enters this evening’s contest with an 3-0 undefeated record as well as a 5.22 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Corey Seager (2 HR, 10 RBI, .232 BA), Justin Turner (1 HR, 11 RBI, .275 BA), and Cody Bellinger (14 HR, 38 RBI, .412 BA).
