Dodgers Struggling In La-La Land

The Los Angeles Dodgers have not been giving their home fans much reason to come out to the ballpark with the team dropping six of their past seven games at Dodgers Stadium. Those seven games have seen the Dodgers average an abysmal 1.7 runs per game and not score more than three runs once. If the Dodgers want to stay above the .500 mark they will need to start winning in LA when they host the New York Mets Monday.

Shark Bites
  • The Mets are 4-0 SU in their past four games against teams with winning records.
  • Yoenis Cespedes is 0-for-6 with five strikeouts in his career against Scott Kazmir.
  • The Dodgers are 0-4 in their past four games following consecutive wins.

The Dodgers will hope to get some sort of magic out of Scott Kazmir when he takes to the mound – despite the lefty being their worst starter of the season statistically. Kazmir has a 5.68 ERA in six starts and has allowed four earned runs or more in four of his past five starts.

Steven Matz – who will start for the Mets – has been one of the best pitchers in baseball recently. After getting rocked in his first start of the season, Matz is 4-0 with a 0.67 ERA while posting a 29-to-5 strikeout-to-walk ratio.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The New York Mets were listed as -105 on the MLB baseball moneyline at many online sportsbooks, including Bet365. The total was set at 7.5 before betting started earlier on Monday over at Bovada.

Prediction-scoring formulas run on this game pick a potential 3.9-2.4 result in favor of the Dodgers. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming MLB matchups here.
