Preview

The New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers will play the 3rd game of the series at the Dodger Stadium on Saturday night. The Dodgers beat the Mets again on Friday night. Cody Bellinger, Zach McKinstry and Chris Taylor homered and the Dodgers won 6-1.

New York Mets

The Mets get here with a 35-19 record and have won 6 of their last 8 games. The team is averaging 5.21 runs per game and allowing 3.73 runs. Jeff McNeil is batting for .320 AVG while Pete Alonso leads with 14 home runs and 48 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:

David Peterson (2-0, 3.03 ERA) will be on the mound for the Mets in the 3rd game of the series. Peterson gave up four runs on six hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out one and he didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 13-5 win over the Nationals.

Los Angeles Dodgers

The Dodgers get here with a 35-17 record and have lost 3 of their last 5 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 .310 AVG. and 16 home runs. Trea Turner has 42 RBI. 

Tyler Anderson allowed only three hits in 6 scoreless innnigs against the Mets and has gone three straight starts without giving up a run.

Probable Pitcher

Walker Buehler (6-1, 3.22 ERA) will take the mound in the 3rd game of the series for the Dodgers. Buehler didn't factor in the decision against Pittsburgh on Monday, pitching six innings and allowing four runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out seven. In his last 3 starts against the Mets he has a 1.87 ERA and 19 strikeouts across 19.2 innings pitched.

BETTING TRENDS

NY Mets are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games against LA Dodgers.

NY Mets are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

LA Dodgers are 15-5 SU in their last 20 games.

The total has gone UNDER in 5 of LA Dodgers' last 6 games against NY Mets.

Prediction

The Mets were dominated by Tyler Anderson and scored only 1 run to the Dodgers bullpen. They'll now face Walker Buehler who beat them twice last season but he has been pounded at home this season. The Mets have struggled to score on this series but I think thay can get 2-3 runs from Buehler and the over has cashed in 4 of Peterson's 5 starts this season. I'm taking the over.

PICK: Over 8.5 (-110)
