MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Mets are 8-2 in their last 10 Thursday games. New York is 5-18 in its last 23 road games.

Los Angeles

The Dodgers are 22-8 in their last 30 games overall. Los Angeles is 4-0 in the last four Ryu starts.


I don't trust Vargas against many teams at all, but against LA it seems almost hopeless. He is bound to give up some runs and he isn't likely to get much support as Ryu has been dealing all season. Consider the runline heavily. This contest has Dodgers win written all over it.
