The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 Sunday games and 50-18 in Kershaws last 68 starts. The Mets are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 3-8 in Colons last 11 home starts. The Dodgers are 10-2 in Kershaws last 12 starts vs. Mets.
Colon hasn't been great this season, and Kershaw is, well, Kershaw. It's hard to bet against argubly the best pitcher in all of baseball. It also helps that the Dodgers offense is picking up lately. Give me the Dodgers to win this game.
