Game 3 of the NLCS between the Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers will begin on Tuesday at 5:08 p.m. ET on TBS. The Braves took a 2-0 series lead Sunday night, after defeating the Dodgers 5-4 in Game 2. Charlie Morton will be on the mound for the Braves and Walker Buehler will get the start for the Dodgers. Below we are going to go over some of our favorite player props for Tuesday’s ALCS Game 3, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Walker Buehler over 15.5 total outs recorded (+105)

The Dodgers need their NL Cy Young candidate in Walker Buehler to pitch a gem and eat some innings in a must-win Game 3 on Tuesday. Los Angeles manager Dave Roberts has not been hesitant in using his bullpen, which may have hurt him in Game 2. But he’ll have his best pitcher on the mound in Buehler, who is looking to rebound from his shaky Game 4 in the NLDS against the Giants.

In that start, Buehler allowed three hits, one earned run, and struck out four batters in only 4.1 IP. It was his shortest start since Sept. 22 against the Colorado Rockies, where he went 3.2 IP. In his one start against the Braves during the regular season, Buehler threw seven innings back on August 31. We are going to roll with the plus money value and hope that he can make it at least to the sixth inning.

Austin Riley over 1.5 hits (+230)

Riley has been one of the best players in the postseason and is becoming a household name at third base. The 24-year-old has left his mark on the postseason, recording a hit in every game the Braves have played up to this part. Riley is hitting .364 with two home runs and four RBI in 22 playoff at-bats. We are going to bank on him to get more than two hits in today’s game, which he’s done twice in six games. However, he went 2-for-3 against Buehler back in August, where the Dodgers won 3-2.
