3 Prop Bets to Take for Dodgers vs. Braves, NLCS Game 6

The Los Angeles Dodgers’ bats came alive in Game 5, with outfielder A.J. Pollock hitting two home runs and third baseman Chris Taylor hitting three home runs. It was a night to remember for the Dodgers, but hopefully they will remember how to attack Atlanta Braves pitcher Ian Anderson in Game 6, who Los Angeles chased after three innings in Game 2.

Max Scherzer was scratched from his game six start, and Walker Buehler will be taking his place on only three days rest. Buehler has failed to get past the fifth inning in each of his last two starts, and it would appear to be the case again tonight.

Tonight has the potential to be a high-scoring contest.

Here are three prop bets to take in NLCS Game 6, odds courtesy of WynnBET Sportsbook.

Best Prop Bets For Dodgers-Braves NLCS Game 6

  • Over 4 Total Runs in the First Five Innings (-115)
  • Chris Taylor Over 0.5 Hits (-180)
  • Corey Seager Over 0.5 Home Runs (+425)

Over 4 Total Runs in the First Five Innings (-115)

Braves pitcher Ian Anderson struggled in his last outing against the Dodgers and Los Angeles starter Walker Buehler is pitching on short rest. 

These offenses will be swinging early to try and knock the opponent starter out of the game as early as possible. 

Atlanta’s SunTrust Park is a home run-friendly ballpark, especially for lefties, so Anderson and Buehler will have their hands full with two lineups that can stack a lot of power at the top of the batting order.

Chris Taylor Over 0.5 Hits (-180)

Much like how Houston Astros designated hitter Yordan Alvarez took over an entire series with his bat in the ALCS against the Boston Red Sox, Taylor can do the same against the Braves in the NLCS.

Taylor has batted .529 (9-for-17) in the NLCS with three home runs and nine RBI, and he’s not done yet. He can put up even bigger numbers if the players preceding him in the lineup can find a way to get on-base.

Corey Seager Over 0.5 Home Runs (+425)

Last season’s NLCS MVP has been too quiet in this season’s NLCS, and that ends tonight. 

Seager batted .328 with eight home runs and 20 RBI in the postseason in 2020, he can certainly rise to the occasion and carry this team when needed. 

Pollock and Taylor got the job done last night, tonight it will be the top of the lineup, with Betts and Seager.
