Dodgers-Braves NLDS Preview: Who Has The Edge?

Though it’s only the divisional round, we’re set to see a true battle of the titans in the Braves-Dodgers National League Divisional Series. Game 1 is Thursday.

My first prediction is this ends up being the most exciting, dramatic, best, etc. divisional round series. We’re talking about a team that won 96 games against a team that went 62-28 (.689, a 162-game pace of 112-50) after waking up from an early-season slumber. The Braves have home-field advantage, which is paramount considering they went 56-25 at home and 40-41 on the road this season. The Dodgers were impressive on the road this season, though, going 45-36.

Both teams relatively limped to the finish line, with the Braves going 13-14 in September while the Dodgers went 12-15.
