The Los Angeles Dodgers attempt to even the NLCS with a road matchup against the Atlanta Braves on Sunday night. First pitch from Truist Park in Atlanta is at 7:38 p.m. ET. The Dodgers are listed as -160 favorites (risk $160 to win $100) on the money line in the latest Dodgers vs. Braves odds from Caesars Sportsbook, while the over-under for total runs scored is 7.5 (see the latest lines for every game on our MLB odds page).

Before making any Dodgers vs. Braves picks, you NEED to see the latest MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

This model, which simulates every game 10,000 times, enters the second week of the 2021 MLB playoffs with a 207-175 record on top-rated MLB money-line picks, returning well over $700. It also had a banner 2019 season, the league's last full schedule, returning more than $1,400 on its top-rated money-line and run-line picks. Anyone following it has seen some HUGE returns!

The model knows the Dodgers can take solace in Max Scherzer. The future Hall of Fame right-hander was one of the best pitchers in baseball this season, producing a 2.46 ERA with 236 strikeouts in 179.1 innings pitched. Scherzer has also been electric in the postseason with a 1.46 ERA in three appearances. Los Angeles led Major League Baseball in run differential this season, and the Dodgers are arguably at their best when Scherzer is on the mound. 

The model also knows the Braves have a strong pitching option in Ian Anderson. Atlanta is 4-1 all-time when Anderson takes the ball in a playoff setting, and he has an ERA below 1.00 in his postseason career. The Braves took Game 1 on the strength of Austin Riley, who belted a home run and contributed the walk-off hit in the ninth inning, and Atlanta is deep and talented. Riley, Freddie Freeman and Ozzie Albies are all playing at a star level, and the team's offense is formidable as a result. 

Now, it has set its sights on Dodgers vs. Braves. We can tell you it's leaning under the total, and it also says one side of the money line has all the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks of your own.
