The Atlanta Braves' opportunity for revenge is here, and they'll host the Philadelphia Phillies in Game 1 of the NLDS on Saturday night. The Phillies shocked the Braves in last year's postseason, knocking out the reigning champs and going on to win the NL pennant. They lost to the Houston Astros in the World Series, and the 2022 champs are among the eight teams who'll play in Division Series games Saturday. The Astros host the Minnesota Twins at 4:45 p.m. ET, after Texas Rangers vs. Baltimore Orioles starts Saturday's AL Division Series Playoffs at 1:03 p.m. ET. The Los Angeles Dodgers host the Arizona Diamondbacks in the other NL Division Series, with Game 1 starting at 9:20 p.m. ET.

First pitch for Phillies vs. Braves is set for 6:07 p.m. ET at Truist Park. The latest MLB odds list Atlanta as the -207 favorite (risk $207 to win $100) and Philadelphia as a +173 underdog. The Orioles (-138), Astros (-157) and Dodgers (-195) also are favorites Saturday.

Top MLB picks for Saturday

One pick highly recommended by the model is the Dodgers (-195) beat the Diamondbacks. Los Angeles dominated the most recent series, and that was at Dodger Stadium, as well. The Dodgers outscored Arizona 23-5 in that three-game series in late August. Left-hander Clayton Kershaw, expected to start Saturday, allowed one run on three hits in the second game of that series, a 9-1 Dodgers victory. Kershaw went 13-5 with a 2.46 ERA and 1.06 WHIP this season.

The Dodgers are one of MLB's top offensive teams, led by Mookie Betts and Freddie Freeman. Both hit over .300 and were among four Dodgers with at least 100 RBI. L.A. scored 906 runs in the regular season, second only to the Braves, and 160 more than Arizona. The Dodgers also had 83 more home runs than the Diamondbacks, led by Betts (39), Max Muncy (36), J.D. Martinez (33) and Freeman (29). Merrill Kelly (13-8, 3.37 ERA) is expected to start for Arizona. See the model's top MLB picks here.
