Admittedly, we here when making predictions sometimes are probably a little biased, but as you will see, that is not entirely the case here this time.

Jake’s NLDS picks-

Jake went with the Milwaukee Brewers to defeat the Atlanta Braves in a 4 game series.

He did say that the Brewers relief corps that will presumably pitch the middle innings of the games is worrisome but the Atlanta Braves will struggle to manufacture runs and the decrease in home runs will limit the Braves’ run-scoring opportunities.

Jake also has Josh Hader as the series MVP as he says he will collect multiple, multiple-inning saves. And to go along with the earlier statement, the X-factor in the series will be the Brewers’ ability to limit the long ball for the Atlanta Braves.

Daniel’s NLDS picks-

Daniel, like Jake, see’s this being a four-game series but Daniel did indeed go with the Atlanta Braves to be victorious.

The MVP of this series according to Daniel will be Jorge Soler as he says this team has taken on a different feel and look since Soler has become Acuna “lite.” He will be the difference maker and will provide a couple of big hits to propel the Braves to the minor upset.

The X-factor according to Daniel will be Charlie Morton and Max Fried being able to limit Milwaukee and their sometimes pedestrian offense. Daniel goes on to say that while Milwaukee does possess some advantages over Atlanta in this series, the gap is not as wide as the advantages that the Braves hold over the Brewers.
