Sooooooo … how we doin’ this beautiful Wednesday, Los Angeles Dodgers fans?
Did you make it out to the 2:00 PM PST Game 3 yesterday? Did you stick around through seven dead innings to watch Cody Bellinger equalize on a high fastball, Mookie Betts notch the game-winner, and Kenley Jansen go beast mode against the heart of the Atlanta Braves lineup? If so? Props.
With five outs to go before this NLCS was, for all intents and purposes, O-V-E-R, AJ Pollock battled and knocked a ball up the middle to bring Bellinger to the plate as the tying run. After whiffing on two fastballs down the heart of the plate, the slugger continued his redemptive track by DESTROYING the highest fastball of all into the right-center bleachers.
It’s the second-highest pitch Bellinger has ever turned around for a dinger. From “series over” to thriving with a bullpen game ahead of us. Oh, how the tables …

Dodgers vs Braves Odds Today
According to our friends at WynnBET, folks seem to believe in the Dodgers opening up the coffin and climbing out. Los Angeles is -215 favorites on the moneyline (bet $215 to win $100), which aren’t wonderful odds for a team that nearly spiraled to a 3-0 deficit the day prior. You can nab Atlanta at +190 (bet $100 to win $190) if you trust them to win a bullpen game.
On the run line, the Dodgers -1.5 and the Braves +1.5 are both checking in at -110. Do you believe in LA winning by two or more, or the Braves covering and taking a thin-margin L? The over/under’s been set at 8.0, with the over checking in at -115 and the under settling at -105.
Dodgers Pitcher Today
Julio Úrias, fresh off his Game 2 relief appearance! Well, we hope he’s fresh. The regular-season 20-3 finisher currently holds a 3.60 postseason ERA in 2021, but has been saddled with an 18.00 mark in this series thanks in large part to Ol’ Dave Roberts!
We have no idea who the Braves are pitching today. Is that good?

Check in with us later. We suspect you’ll see Belli.
Dodgers vs Braves Prediction Today
I mean … you’ve got to pick the Dodgers, right? Worst-case scenario, Úrias feels a little “off” after being used in relief, and is only able to go … five innings, allowing two runs. Blake Treinen can get some run in this one. So can Brusdar Graterol. The Braves’ bullpen only has enough studs to navigate the tail end of games effectively … what, half the time? How are they going to fight through all nine?
8-3 Dodgers, and we’re all evened up.
