The Line: New York Mets +180 / Los Angeles Dodgers -200 -- Over/Under: 8
The New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Tuesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The New York Mets look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Mets have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 12 games. The New York Mets have won 10 of their last 14 games when scoring four or more runs. Jeff McNeil leads the Mets with 55 hits and 15 RBI while Amed Rosario and Pete Alonso have combined for 94 hits and 65 RBI. Steven Matz gets the ball, and he is 3-3 with a 3.63 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. Matz is 2-1 with a 3.86 ERA and 28 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look to stay hot after winning 10 of their last 12 games. The Dodgers have scored 27 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 10 straight games when scoring more than one run. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 71 hits and 48 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 97 hits and 54 RBI. Rich Hill gets the ball, and he is 1-1 with a 2.67 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. Hill is 2-2 with a 7.45 ERA and 38 strikeouts in his career against the Mets.
The Mets are 14-6 in their last 20 during game 2 of a series, 5-0 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 8-3 in Matz's last 11 starts. The Dodgers are 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games, 7-2 in their last 9 during game 2 of a series and 10-3 in Hill's last 13 starts. The Mets are 2-6 in the last 8 meetings in Los Angeles, 3-14 in the last 17 meetings and the Dodgers are 4-0 in Hill's last 4 starts vs. Mets. The over is 9-3-1 in Hill's last 13 starts overall. The under is 4-1 in Matz's last 5 starts overall.
The New York Mets are finding ways to win games and Matz has been sharp this season, but you have to question how the injuries and watered down lineup is going to hang with the Dodgers club that's swinging the bats well. I'm just not confident the Mets have enough horses to hang in this series. Hill has also found his footing after a late start to the season, as he's given up just seven hits and one run in his last 12 innings, and he's always solid when pitching in Los Angeles. The prices are a bit steep, but I like the way the Dodgers are rolling right now. I'll take it.
