New York Mets at LA Dodgers MLB Odds Betting Prediction

Posted by Alex Murphy on Friday,July 3, 2015 3:49, EST in

Before the MLB betting season began, much was made about the amount of money that the LA Dodgers are paying their players. History has shown that the team that spends the most is not necessarily the one that is the most successful. There is a ton of pressure on the Dodgers to win, and they will once again be put to the test when they welcome in the New York Mets for a 3-game series, with the second game set to go on Saturday.

A Look at the New York Mets at LA Dodgers MLB Odds Betting Prediction & TV Info

Date: Saturday, July 04, 2015
Time: 7:15 PM
Venue: Dodger Stadium
Opening Line: Dodgers -152

For now, the Dodgers (45-35) are holding up their end of the bargain, as they hold a 3-game lead atop the NL West. The Dodgers have not been a particularly good team on the road this season, so they have to be pleased with the 6-4 record they compiled on the 10-game road trip that they just completed. They will now be at home for the final 10 games of the first half, which is something that they have to be very happy about. The Dodgers have gone 27-13 at home this season, and it is largely their strong play at Dodger Stadium that has helped them maintain their lead atop the division. Zack Greinke (6-2, 1.58 ERA) has been the best pitcher for the Dodgers all season, but has been rewarded with almost nothing in the way of run support. He has not given up a run in his last 3 starts, yet only managed to walk away with a 1-0 record.

The New York Mets (40-40) are much like the Dodgers in that they are a much better team at home than they are on the road. Their 29-14 record at home is their best performance for as long as anyone can remember, but it is their 11-26 record on the road that has them sitting 3.5 games off the pace in the NL East. If they hope to continue keeping pace with the Washington Nationals, they are going to have to find a way to get the job done away from home. Their next 6 games are on the road, and then they will finish up the first half with a home tilt against the Arizona Diamondbacks. Matt Harvey (7-5, 2.9 ERA) will get the start for the Mets on Saturday. Harvey has only given up a single earned run in his last three starts.

Consider This Before Placing Your Bets

Baseball fans who love pitching duels are going to want to tune into this one. This has low-scoring game written all over it, and I think it will be Grienke and the Dodgers who come out on top in a tight affair.
