LA Dodgers won nine of the last 10 matches and ride a six game winning streak, but it could come to an end tonight when they face the New York Mets. The hosts won the opening game but were limited to just four runs, only half of what they achieved in the previous five victories.
Bet: NY Mets
Odds: Winner Sports 2.00
Keeping up their higher run production can be difficult with Matt Harvey taking the mound for the visitors as he didn’t concede an earned run in his last three outings. Matt recently shut down Colorado and had his first complete game, so it goes without saying that he will be a tough nut to crack in Los Angeles. The NY Mets will still need to improve their own run production if they are to avoid losing consecutive games for the first time this month.
The Dodgers have a strong starting pitcher of their own, with Ryu conceding on average three runs per game and winning 11/14 decisions in 2013. He posted an ERA of 1.40 in his last four starts and he helped his team win the last eight games with him as starting pitcher. The hosts are confident in their bullpen’s ability to defend even a narrow advantage over their opponents, something that the Mets can’t brag about. The New Yorkers have a slight advantage in what promises to be a pitchers’ duel and it is up to Matt Harvey to carry his team to victory.
Los Angeles is the team to beat right now in the National League but there is no better pitcher to bring their winning streak to an end than Matt Harvey. Winner Sports prices the visiting team at even odds so it’s worth giving it a shot and back the NY Mets.
