Already down 0-1 to the Atlanta Braves in the National League Championship Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers faced another setback before Tuesday’s Game 2 even started. Starter Clayton Kershaw (back spasms) was scratched, and Los Angeles is expected to send 26-year old Tony Gonsolin to the hill in his place. The Braves will start rookie Ian Anderson, who has been phenomenal in the 2020 MLB Playoffs. He’s yet to give up a run and has struck out 17 in 11.2 innings of work.
First pitch from Globe Life Field in Arlington, Tex., is set for 6:05 p.m. ET. William Hill lists Los Angeles as the -135 favorite on the money line in the Dodgers vs. Braves odds, down from opening at -157 since the Kershaw news broke. The over-under for total runs has risen from 7.5 to 8. Before making any Braves vs. Dodgers picks, check out the latest MLB
