Runs Typically Rare When NYM, LAD Meet

With both the Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets employing some of the best pitchers in the game today, it should be no surprise that offense can be hard to come by when these two clubs clash. The UNDER is 5-2 in the past seven meetings between the Mets and Dodgers with the teams combining for an average of 6.1 runs per game.

Shark Bites
  • The Dodgers’ lineup is batting a career .170 against Noah Syndergaard.
  • The Dodgers have won just one of their past six road games.
  • The Mets have won four of their past five games when hosting the Dodgers.

After starting the season looking untouchable, Dodgers’ pitcher Kenta Maeda has fallen off. Maeda has allowed four runs in four of his past five starts while posting a 2.1-to-1 K/BB ratio. The Japanese allowed six hits, four earned runs and two home runs in five innings of work when he first faced the Mets this season. 

Noah Syndergaard will take to the mound for the Mets coming off back-to-back shutout performances. Syndergaard has recorded 21 strikeouts and no walks in his past two outings. The last team to score a run against ‘Thor’ was the Dodgers – a game that the Mets won 4-3.
