Dodgers Aim for Three of Four in Finale with Braves Thursday

Los Angeles continues to expand NL West lead

The Dodgers had trailed the Giants in the NL West for a good portion of the first-half of the season. Now, they find themselves five games ahead of San Francisco and the gap keeps getting wider. Two wins in the first three games of their series with the Braves have helped increase their division lead. Now, they go for the series victory with newly acquired Roberto Hernandez on the bump. This will be his second start with Los Angeles.

Braves dropping back towards NL East pack

Following their eight-game losing streak, the Braves have not recovered much with the Dodgers in town. They have fallen to five games behind the Nationals in the NL East and are in danger of having the Marlins pass them in the standings. Veteran righty Aaron Harang will get the ball today for the Braves with a record of 9-6 and a solid ERA of 3.31. He has pitched to five consecutive no-decisions of late.

One of the more exciting series this week will come to an end when the Dodgers visit the Braves for a fourth time on Thursday afternoon. We will place our bets over at Sportsbook.ag, where the Dodgers are underdogs despite their success against Atlanta. We will drop 10 percent of our bankroll on Los Angeles and the OVER 7.5 total runs scored at -110 as they take three of four.
