The Line: New York Mets +165 / Los Angeles Dodgers -185 -- Over/Under: 7.5
The New York Mets and Los Angeles Dodgers meet Wednesday in MLB action at Dodger Stadium.
The New York Mets look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Mets have scored 16 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in their last nine games. The New York Mets have won 11 of their last 15 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 99 hits and 66 RBI. Noah Syndergaard gets the ball, and he is 3-4 with a 4.93 ERA and 72 strikeouts this season. Syndergaard is 1-0 with a 1.65 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his career against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The Dodgers have scored 23 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 13 straight games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 72 hits and 49 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 101 hits and 54 RBI. Walker Buehler gets the ball, and he is 5-1 with a 3.58 ERA and 52 strikeouts this season. This will be Buehler’s first career game against the Mets.
The Mets are 3-10 in their last 13 during game 3 of a series, 1-5 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 4-0 in Syndergaard's last 4 starts vs. National League West. The Dodgers are 39-14 in their last 53 during game 3 of a series, 70-33 in their last 103 vs. National League East and 4-1 in Buehler's last 5 home starts. The Mets are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-16 in the last 21 meetings. The over is 3-1-2 in Buehler's last 6 starts overall. The over is 6-2-1 in Syndergaard's last 9 starts overall.
Syndergaard has had some games this season where he's really gotten rocked, and he's fresh off a game against the Detroit Tigers where he allowed 10 hits and six runs in 5.1 innings. Buehler has been much more consistent, allowing three or less earned runs in eight of his last nine starts and giving up a .228 batting average on the year. While the Dodgers have been stingy at home and probably have the pitching edge based on current form, we're getting an ace quality pitcher and huge plus money. Struggles or not, Syndergaard still has filthy stuff. Syndergaard has only been an underdog eight times since the 2017 season. I'll take a shot here with the Mets.
