The Los Angeles Dodgers and the New York Mets meet Tuesday in MLB doubleheader action from Citi Field. Here’s a NY Mets vs LA Dodgers Prediction. These will be the first and second installments in a three-game series. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for the games.

Los Angeles Dodgers Betting Preview

The Dodgers took on the Cincinnati Reds over the weekend. Los Angeles took losses in the first two installments of that set 9-6 and 3-1. In the Sunday finale the Dodgers lost again, this time 4-1. On Monday versus the Mets we had a rainout. That one will be made up via a single-admission doubleheader Tuesday.

As starting pitcher for the Tuesday game one the Dodgers will send out Tyler Glasnow. Over his 11 starts this year Glasnow is 6-3 with a 3.09 ERA and 87 Ks in 67.0 innings. It’ll be Gavin Stone in game two. Stone is 4-2 with a 3.60 ERA.

New York Mets Betting Preview

Over on the Mets’ side, they played the San Francisco Giants in their last series. New York took losses 8-7 and 7-2 in the first two games. On Sunday the Mets eked out a 4-3 win to stave off the sweep.

For game one the Mets are sending out Tylor Megill to start. Megill is 0-2 with a 3.00 ERA and 11 Ks. It’ll be Jose Quintana in the game two starting pitcher role for the Mets on Tuesday. This year so far Quintana is 1-4 with a 5.13 ERA in 10 starts.

NY Mets vs LA Dodgers Prediction

I’ll probably just stick with the Dodgers in game one. Los Angeles needs a solid outing from Glasnow, though. In his last two combined, Glasnow is 0-2 with seven earned runs on 10 hits and two walks in 10.0 total innings.

In game two, I’ll likely lean toward Los Angeles as well. Stone needs a good bounce-back effort after giving up four earned on eight hits in a loss May 21, but he should be fine. As for Quintana, he’s 0-1 in his last three starts, with nine earned in 16.1 innings of work.
