Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves Predictions 5/23/2023


In the National League East, the Braves are in first place and have a comfortable five-game advantage over the Mets in second.


Despite having a solid overall record, the Braves home record is only 12-10, and they rank only 24th in home money line profits ($-326).


The Braves are just 5-16 against the run line when they are the home favorite, the sixth-worst percentage in MLB.


The Braves will start Spencer Strider on Tuesday (4-0, 2.96 ERA). Strider made 31 appearances as a rookie last season, going 11-5 with a 2.67 ERA, 202 strikeouts, and 131.2 innings pitched.


Strider was nearly unbeatable this season with 86 strikeouts in 51.2 innings and a 1-0 record with a 3.13 ERA in four home outings.


The Braves are third in OPS (.795), second in home runs per game (1.63), and fifth in MLB with an average of 5.3 runs per game.


The strong lineup is led by Matt Olson, who has 35 RBI and 13 home runs. Ronald Acuna Jr. leads the squad with a 3.0 WAR, 18 steals, 11 home runs, and 27 RBI.


As of this year, the Braves staff has a 3.56 FIP and a team WHIP of 1.252. They accumulated a 9.80 strikeout-to-walk ratio (444 strikeouts to 140 free passes).


As a staff, they are presently ranked ninth in the league with 370 total hits allowed. They are fourth in MLB with 3.91 runs allowed per 9 innings and 40 home runs allowed.


The Atlanta pitching staff’s season total runs allowed is 177, and their team earned run average (ERA) is 3.49 (158 runs allowed).


  • The total went OVER in 6 of Atlanta’s last eight matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Atlanta’s last six matches against the LA Dodgers.
  • The total went OVER in 15 of Atlanta’s last 20 matches at home.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs Atlanta Braves. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers. With 40 double plays, the Atlanta Braves had the 30th-best fielding percentage in Major League Baseball (.980).


The Braves earned 1,223 putouts this season, recording 380 assists, 32 mistakes, and 32 outs. The Braves now rank 28th in professional baseball with a defensive efficiency of 67.2% out of their 3,669 innings played.


Despite the Dodgers having one of the league’s most dangerous lineups, the Braves have a significant starting pitching advantage and will be under pressure for nine innings.


Even though the Braves should win the match, be cautious, given the steep money-line odds. Although Atlanta was among the weakest teams in those circumstances, the run line offers a better value. 


This year, the Braves are 8-1 when Spencer Strider is pitching, but five of those victories—including each of the last three triumphs—were decided by just one run.


I cannot wager the -200 against the Dodgers, who have an overall record of 16-6 in their last 22 games, in Atlanta.


Los Angeles is too talented of a squad to overlook as a run-line favorite here, even if they fall short. The Los Angeles Dodgers will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
