Pick on the Moneyline of Dodgers-Braves for Sunday

VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Sunday’s matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Los Angeles Dodgers Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Atlanta Braves look to settle the score on their three-game set in the late game of the Sunday MLB slate with a pair of young starters going on each side.

Los Angeles Dodgers (-115, 8.5) vs Atlanta Braves

Tony Gonsolin gets the start for the Dodgers, who has allowed two earned runs or fewer in all 13 of his starts this season and is the National League’s wins leader, posting a 9-0 record with a 1.58 ERA.

Gonsolin has found success this season with being able to lower his walks issued, giving out eight walks in his last seven starts and going at least six innings in six of those starts after he had a 5.5 walks per nine innings rate last season.

The Braves counter with 23-year-old Spencer Strider, who has been getting 13.6 strikeouts per nine innings and was elevated from the bullpen to the starting rotation nearly a month ago.

As a reliever, Strider had a 2.22 ERA, but that balloons to 4.63 as a starter and he has given up 4.2 walks per nine innings this season.

Sunday’s matchup features two of the top three bullpens in the National League in terms of ERA and with the Dodgers leading the league in runs per game, they will finish their trip to Atlanta with a win.

The Play: Dodgers -115
