Noah Syndergaard gets the ball, and he is 4-4 with a 3.69 ERA and 30 strikeouts this season. Syndergaard is 1-1 with a 3.29 ERA and 24 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.

Backing the Los Angeles Angels in any shape or form seems like burning money these days, especially when the Dodgers are at home and have Tony Gonsolin on the mound. The Dodgers should be big favorites here. However, the Dodgers didn’t play well last week and Noah Syndergaard is still a more than respectable pitcher. Heck, in 76 at bats against current LAD hitters, Syndergaard is allowing a .188 batting average with 22 strikeouts. We’re getting an ace caliber pitcher and nearly double our money. I’ll take a chance.
