Dodgers vs Mets Betting Outlook
The Dodgers are consistently one of the better teams we have ever seen. A quiet stretch of 41-9 during this season is an incredible feat. At the plate, the Dodgers lead most of the offensive categories against right-handed pitchers.
They lead the league in wRC, OPS, SLG, and BABIP against right handers. The Dodgers are 45-22 on the road, and are 62-25 against right-handed pitchers on the year. As an underdog, the Dodgers are only 1-3, but that changes tonight against the best pitcher of our generation.
When I was looking at the old batter vs pitcher matchup machine, a couple of Dodgers players caught my eye. Freddie Freeman, Trea Turner, Justin Turner, and Joey Gallo are all hitting over .250 against Jacob deGrom. Also a classic New York Mets tale, is them blowing Jacob deGrom’s start.
The Mets have struggled way more with left-handed pitchers than they’ve had with right handers. They are in the middle of the league in SLG, OPS, wRC+, and ISO against left-handed pitchers compared to being in the top of the league in most of those categories against righties.
The Mets are 43-21 at home, 64-29 as favorites, and are only 25-19 against Left Handed starters.

Dodgers vs Mets Pick and Prediction
The Dodgers are an outlier when you look at teams facing Jacob deGrom. They aren’t like other teams. They are going to be able to score some runs off of deGrom and will be able to win this game, and the total will go over as well.
Take LA to win at +135 in the Dodgers vs Mets odds, and if you’re feeling frisky take the over as well. Scared money don’t make money.
Pick: Dodgers ML (+135) 1 unit, Over 6.5 (-115) 1 unit
