Mets vs. Dodgers Prediction

I’m on the Mets here. I know Tyler Glasnow’s been one of the best starters in baseball through the first month of the season, racking up strikeouts like it’s going out of style, but the Mets have been the better team by a fair margin in this series and Glasnow showed recently that even he can be had at the best of times. The Mets continue to provide value and have shown up time and time again at the plate and I think they show up here again as well. Give me the Mets in this one.
