Why Bet the Mets

The Mets just wrapped up a four game series in San Diego, where after losing the first two, they won the final two. New York is led offensively by Yoenis Cespedes.

His WHIP is 1.48 on the season, and has struck out 28, while walking 12. The Dodgers have struggled at home this season, winning just 5 of 13 games. Los Angeles is led offensively by Chase Utley, with a .298 batting average, as well as Joc Pedersen with 6 homeruns. The Dodgers are batting .241 as a team, and have scored 129 runs on the season.

My Expert Score & Prediction

This should be a pretty fun game. How will Alex Wood do against a tough New York Mets lineup? After a slow start offensively, the Mets have been hitting the baseball all over the ballpark. Yoenis Cespedes is quite the challenge, but even more against lefthanded pitching. He can crush the ball well out of Dodger Ballpark if Alex Wood doesn’t be careful. Look for the Mets to out score the Dodgers in this game, especially with Jacob DeGrom on the hill. The bet for this game is the New York Mets -129 over the Los Angeles Dodgers.The final score prediction:NY Mets 4 – LA Dodgers 3.
