Why you should back the Dodgers

Shortstop Trea Turner is a sound hitter with superb instincts. Turner’s swing is compact and has the ability to place the ball into any gap. The 2021 All-Star is patient at the plate and can get deep into counts. Turner is ninth in the majors in batting average (.320) and tied for seventh in RBIs (52). On June 24, he was 3-for-5 with a solo homer. 

Catcher Will Smith impacts the game offensively and defensively. Behind the plate, he is extremely nimble with a fantastic throwing arm. As a batter, Smith can hit for power with the ability to drive in runs. The 27-year-old is hitting .260 with 11 home runs and 35 RBIs. Smith is currently on a seven-game hitting streak. 

Why you should back the Braves

First baseman Matt Olson has great patience and plate coverage. Olson can rack up homers and drive in runs for the Braves. The 2021 All-Star has been a reliable defender in the corner and is a nice throwing target. Olson is hitting .249 along with 10 homers and 39 RBIs. On June 24, he was 2-for-3 with a double and one run was driven in. 

Third baseman Austin Riley is a smooth two-way force on the diamond. Riley owns serious home-run power. The 25-year-old has a strong throwing arm and sends missiles across the diamond. Riley is eighth in the MLB in home runs (18) along with 42 RBIs. In his last outing, he was 2-for-4 with a double.
