Dodgers Struggling at Chavez Ravine

Noah Syndergaard New York Mets Kenta Maeda Los Angeles Dodgers MLB

Despite a slightly above average 17-16 record to begin the campaign, the Los Angeles Dodgers enter Wednesday’s action at the top of a bunched-up National League West. Considering how dismal they’ve been at Dodger Stadium, however, it may come as somewhat of a surprise.

Shark Bites
  • UNDER is 4-0 in the previous four meetings between these two teams.
  • The Mets are 6-1 SU in their last seven games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • Syndergaard allowed 3 ER in 6 1/3 in the Dodgers’ 5-2 win in Game 2 of the 2015 NLDS.

At online shop Bovada, the Mets get the slight nod as moneyline favorites at -118 while the Dodgers are currently -102. In runline markets, the Mets are -1.5 (+150) while the Dodgers come in at -170. As far as the total is concerned, both sides of the 6.5 number are tabbed at -115.

The Dodgers have posted a record of just 6-9 at home this season and have actually gone just 2-7 SU in their last nine ball games at Chavez Ravine.

Trayce Thompson smacked a pinch-hit homer with a couple of outs in the bottom of the ninth Tuesday night, giving the Dodgers the 3-2 win after dropping the series opener 4-2 on Monday.

The pitching matchup, much like the majority of Wednesday’s MLB schedule, is an excellent one as Noah Syndergaard gets the call for the Mets, while rookie-phenom Kenta Maeda is expected to counter for the Dodgers.

Thor has hit a bit of a rough patch since we’ve moved into May. He’s lost both of his starts in the month as he’s allowed six earned runs in 11 2/3 innings of work. Still, he’s 2-2 with a 2.58 ERA and 1.07 WHIP on the season thus far and is about as dominant as it gets with his velocity and intimidating slider.

Maeda has had a fantastic start to his career and for as good as Syndergaard’s numbers are, Maeda’s are better. The 28-year-old is 3-1 with 1.66 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in six starts. The Dodgers have lost his last two outings (Maeda took the personal loss in one) and they’ll look for improved support tonight at Dodger Stadium.
