Dodgers at Mets Betting Preview
The weekend series between the Dodgers and Mets will conclude on Sunday, with the teams playing some exciting contests in the prior days. L.A. has been on fire, while the Mets have slipped back into third place in the NL East. If betting on this game is a weekend priority, make sure to head over to Online Betting Sports and make it happen.
New York is behind both Atlanta and Philly now, after being in first place for an awfully long time. It isn’t a shocker to see them slipping, but with so much time still left in the year, it’s tough to see. Normally, the Mets go on a late-season surge to qualify for the playoffs and not the other way around. A victory on Sunday evening could boost their morale, heading into a critical week.
The Dodgers, meanwhile, are just a spoil of riches. They find new big-name players to bring in not only every offseason but each trade deadline. They took two All-Stars from DC this time around, one of whom will be the starting pitcher for the game. But that is what happens when you have the money to pay everyone, and a farm system is built up nicely.
If the Dodgers having Max Scherzer on the mound makes you confident, bet L.A. by clicking Online Betting Sports.
The betting picks for the game are below.
The spread for Sunday night is set at LAD -1.5. The over/under is eight runs. The NYM moneyline is +150, while the favored Dodgers are listed at -180 to win.
Dodgers Trying to Catch Giants
It has been a long time since San Francisco was a good time during an odd year. But, at 75-42, they are four games ahead of their divisional foes. It has come as a surprise to almost everybody outside the organization. That shouldn’t be a big issue for L.A. since there is still so much time left.
The big surprise has been Cody Bellinger, with just 37 hits and a sub-.200 batting average in the games he’s played and hasn’t been hurt in. Mookie Betts is currently injured and missing time. Trea Turner is still trying to find his footing in his new home.
Of course, it’s World Series or bust, again.
Mets Look for Key Win
A lot of losses have snuck up on the Mets of late. And that’s just baseball. But if they do not win their division, they will not be getting a playoff spot. The NL West will have three teams make it, so there is not going to be a Wild Card spot to grab.
Not having Jacob deGrom or consistent hitting have been two factors dragging them down. Still, they have good pitching and enough talent to win. So, let’s see it.
Cookie Carrasco Gets the Nod for NY
Carlos Carrasco has dealt with a lot this year and so has made only three prior starts. But he’ll get the ball in primetime on Sunday, looking to make things happen.
In those first three appearances, he lasted just 9/3 innings. He has nine strikeouts against two walks, posting a 6.75 ERA. Time to turn it around.
Scherzer Gets Ball for L.A.
Max Scherzer will make his third start in Dodger Blue on Sunday night. Through his first two, he has pitched 10 1/3 effective innings. He has struck out 16 while walking just one. And his ERA is sitting pretty at 1.74.
The team has just been being cautious with him, but this could be Max’s 6-8 inning performance.
The series will end with a Dodgers win, and L.A. both loves that and needs it too. Can’t beat Max.
