This is a bit concerning to me because the Los Angeles Dodgers are better than the Atlanta Braves in every single department on paper. Typically, this is a sign of great things to come. However, used to the heartbreak, I cannot get my hopes up and think this will be a breeze.

The Dodgers are easily the most talented team in the National League when they are firing on all cylinders. Even more important, the team is practically completely healthy. Corey Seager is the only impact player with an injury and he was replaced with Manny Machado.
However, we have seen this same Dodger team put up bad at-bat after bad at-bat and let teams back into games that really should not be in it. The Dodgers could outscore the Braves 30-5 in three games or could be outscored 10 runs to six in a sweep, or anywhere in between.
The chances of the former are larger than the latter and the Dodgers should win this series in no more than five games. Not only do the Dodgers have the advantage talent-wise, but they are also better managed and most importantly more experienced.
Experience matters in these games and the big moment could make some of these young players shell up. The Dodgers have been there, done that and know how to grind out a series win.
With all that in mind, I am confident that the Los Angeles Dodgers can get the job done against Atlanta. It’s going to be fun, buckle up.
