Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets Betting Prediction
The Mets send RHP Jacob deGrom to the mound against L. A.’s top-ranked scoring offense on Tuesday night (5.39 RSPG), who hasn’t missed a beat since returning from a shoulder injury, considering he’s 3-1 with a 2.15 ERA across five starts this season (0.55 WHIP), which is a slight upgrade upon his career 80-54 record and 2.49 ERA (1.00 WHIP).
On the flip side, the Dodgers send LHP Tyler Anderson to the mound against New York’s fifth-ranked scoring offense tonight (4.69 RSPG), who’s comfortably having the best campaign of his seven-year career sitting 13-2 with a 2.69 ERA in 24 appearances this season (1.26 WHIP), which already includes a winning performance against the Mets (6 IP, 3 H, 0 ER).
I’ll take the under here, as Anderson has tossed five innings or more and allowed one run or less in six of his last eight outings for Los Angeles (2.08 WHIP, 1.02 WHIP); setting the stage for a low-scoring battle against the Mets and deGrom, who’s 0-4 with a 2.87 ERA in ten career starts against the Dodgers (0.99 WHIP).
Score Prediction: Dodgers 3, Mets 2
Best Bet: Under 6.5 (+100)
