The Los Angeles Dodgers also could use a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Dodgers have allowed eight runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have an ERA of 3.60 and are 15-3 this season when allowing three or less runs. Offensively, Adrian Gonzalez leads Los Angeles with 34 hits, Corey Seager has 15 RBI and Joc Pederson has six home runs. Kenta Maeda takes the hill, and he’s 3-1 with a 1.66 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. This will be Maeda’s first career game against the Mets.
The Mets are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 3 of a series and 5-2 in Syndergaards last 7 road starts. The Dodgers are 31-12 in their last 43 during game 3 of a series and 14-5 in their last 19 Wednesday games. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.
This should be a wonderful game between two solid pitchers who have held their own this season early on. And while Syndergaard has the better stuff, the Dodgers are at home and have the better lineup. So, in a toss-up game, I'm siding with the Dodgers to get the job done here.
