Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves: prediction for the MLB match
The Los Angeles Dodgers lost the first two games of the semifinal series against the Atlanta Braves. Will the hosts be able to make a comeback on October 20? Our answer is in the prediction below.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The Los Angeles Dodgers have lost the first two games of the semifinal series in Atlanta (2:3 and 4:5). Dave Roberts' charges will be looking to bounce back in the first game at home. Despite losing twice, the Dodgers looked quite good, so they have a good chance of defeating the Braves.
The Atlanta Braves secured two important victories at home. The Braves looked more convincing than their opponent at the end of each game, maintaining focus and snatching victories in the last innings. Brian Snitker's charges are just one victory away from getting into the final.
- The Los Angeles Dodgers lost only 1 of the last 5 home games
- The Atlanta Braves suffered 2 defeats in 6 previous away games
- The Los Angeles Dodgers won the last 5 head-to-head games at home.
The Dodgers are in a precarious position. If they make the same mistakes they did in the previous two games, they will not get into the final. The hosts look stronger on paper, but we saw how tired the Dodgers looked at the end of each semifinal game. We are not convinced that they have enough energy left for this confrontation.
However, the Dodgers won 5 previous head-to-head games in Los Angeles. We believe that with the support of the stand they can find the motivation to win this fight.
Our prediction -Asian handicap (-1.5) to the Los Angeles Dodgers
