The Los Angeles Dodgers steamrolled an overrated San Diego Padres offense in the NLDS, and they face another overrated NL team in the Atlanta Braves this time around. Will the Dodgers keep on rolling?
Here is my betting preview of the series:
The Dodgers have the best offense in baseball … and it’s not even close. You may not think it by looking at the 2020 stats, but it’s true. By 2020 measures, the Braves actually led all MLB with a .355 team wOBA (L.A. was .350), but that number and ranking greatly exaggerates the actual quality of this offense, as they were aided by quite a bit of 60-game small-sample-size variance.
