Mets vs. Dodgers MLB Prediction
The Dodgers will throw their ace tonight against the Mets when the two teams meet at 10:10PM ET. Will L.A. win on the runline? Read on for our prediction.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Dodgers are -250 money line favorites versus the Mets, who have odds of +210 to pull off the upset. With Clayton Kershaw set to face potential home run champion Bartolo Colon, the over/under is sitting at 6 runs for tonight’s game.
The Dodgers are 4-0 in Kershaw’s last four starts versus a team with a winning record and 10-2 in his last 12 starts when pitching in the fourth game of a series. They’re also 47-18 in his last 65 starts, 39-16 in his last 55 outings following a quality start in his last appearance, and 56-25 in his last 81 home starts.
Los Angeles has also been profitable for bettors when Kershaw faces the Mets, winning nine of his last 11 starts against New York. The Dodgers are also 8-3 in their last 11 home games versus a team with a road winning percentage of greater than .600 and are 19-8 in their last 28 games played on Thursday.
There’s little to no value in taking the Dodgers on the money line at the current price of -250. But with Kershaw on the mound, they’re still a good bet to win and if they can jump on Colon, they should cash on the runline (which offers significantly more value at -105 odds).
