The New York Mets need a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Mets have scored 17 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games. The Mets have lost four straight games when scoring three or less runs. Curtis Granderson leads New York with 89 hits and 31 RBI while Juan Lagares and Wilmer Flores have combined for 65 RBI. The New York Mets have split their last eight home games. Jacob deGrom takes the hill, and he’s 10-6 with a 2.18 ERA and 120 strikeouts this season. deGrom is 0-2 with a 6.00 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Dodgers are 11-3 in their last 14 during game 4 of a series and 50-24 in Greinkes last 74 starts. The Mets are 16-5 in their last 21 Sunday games and 8-3 in deGroms last 11 starts. The Dodgers are 16-5 in the last 21 meetings.
It's impossible to bet against Greinke, espeically with the Mets not scoring runs. Yes, New York had a field day Saturday, which means it will score two or less runs for the next week. Take one of the top pitchers in baseball and the reasonable chalk.
