The Braves (88-73) enter the playoffs after winning their fourth straight NL East title. They did that despite losing Ronald Acuna Jr for the last two and a half months of the season. That's when Freddie Freeman and Austin Riley took over to lead the team back to the playoffs. Riley hit a team high 33 home runs while Freeman hit 31 homers with a team leading on-base percentage of .393.

The Brewers (95-67) won the NL Central with the third best record in the NL behind only the hundred-win Giants and Dodgers. The key to Milwaukee’s success this season was their pitching as Brandon Woodruff, Corbin Burnes and Freddy Peratla all made 25 or more starts while posting sub-3.00 ERA's. To back up that rotation was one of the best closers in baseball, Josh Hader who's 1.23 ERA was the lowest among relievers in baseball.

Charlie Morton takes the ball for the Braves in game one of this series. Corbin Burnes gets the start for the Brewers. The 26-year-old Burnes went 11-5 on the year and his 2.43 ERA was the best of any starter in baseball. He ended his season with a loss, but it was hit first since May.  Morton, a 37-year-old veteran just wrapped up a solid season in Atlanta going 14-6 over a league leading 33 starts posting a 3.34 ERA. Morton is 7-3 in his postseason career.

The Brewers are a 1.5-run favorite against the Braves. The over/under is 7 runs.
