Preview

The New York Mets visit the Los Angeles Dodgers to play a 4-game series at the Dodger Stadium. The Mets swept the Nationals in their last series while the Dodgers were swept by the Pirates.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 35-17 record and have won 8 of their last 10 games. The team is averaging 5.21 runs per game and allowing 3.73 runs. Jeff McNeil is batting for .318 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 13 home runs and 47 RBI.

Carlos Carrasco threw 5 scoreless innings against the Nats and he's leading the team with a 3.63 ERA, 51 strikeouts and 6 wins recorded for the Mets.

Probable Pitcher:

Taijuan Walker (3-0, 2.83 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 1st game of the series. Walker earned the victory over Philadelphia on Saturday, pitching five innings and allowing two runs on six hits and three walks while striking out one batter. In his last 3 starts against the Dodgers he has a 3.75 ERA and 20 strikeouts across 19.2 innings pitched.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 33-17 record and have lost their last 3 games. The team is averaging .253 at bat scoring 5.48 runs per game while allowing 3.2 runs. Mookie Bets leads the team batting for .306 AVG. and 16 home runs. Trea Turner has 41 RBI. 

Julio Urias leads the team with a 2.89 ERA, 42 strikeouts and 3 wins recorded for the Dodgers.

Probable Pitcher

Tony Gonsolin (5-0, 1.80 ERA) will take the mound in the 1st game of the series for the Dodgers. Gonsolin earned the win over Arizona on Saturday, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out seven batters.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Mets are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games.

NY Mets are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games against LA Dodgers.

LA Dodgers are 13-5 SU in their last 18 games.

The total has gone OVER in 10 of LA Dodgers' last 12 games at home.

Prediction

The Dodgers lost again vs Pirates, one of the worst teams in the league but they're still averaging over 5 runs per game offensively and have won in 6 of Gonsolin's 9 starts this season. The Mets have swept the last 2 teams they have faced and the offense is on fire, they're 1-7 in their last 8 games vs Dodgers but this is a different team than last season. The Dodgers shouldn't be so heavy favorites agaisnt this Mets team. Give me the Mets and the free money.

PICK: Mets ML (+148)
