Can the Dodgers be the 15th team to come back from 1-3 in a major league postseason series?

Lyou Dodgers They are the defending champions of the Major Leagues. They have the most expensive payroll. They won 106 games in the regular season, second only to one of the Giants in all of baseball. They won 18 games more than their rival in the National League Championship Series, the Atlanta Braves, who for the second year in a row have them at a 1-3 hole.

In 2020, in Texas as the neutral venue to end the pandemic season, Los Angeles’ ninth rallied to be just the 14th team coming back from such a disadvantage. This year, if they want to do it, they will have to fight against home advantage, since being wild cards, four of the seven games would be in Atlanta with the last two remaining if they manage to survive Thursday.

Odds give them few options. According FanDuel, a comeback over 1-3 pays +380, giving them a 20.8% chance advance to the World Series, which is higher than dictated by history, where only 14 of 89 (15.73%) won a series losing 1-3.

Game 5 will be played Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium. By Los Angeles will have an opener strategy, while Atlanta sends Max Fried to the mound.

If necessary, Game 6 would be on Saturday and the seventh on Sunday, both at Truist Park in Atlanta.
