The Los Angeles Dodgers will play the New York Mets in Game 2 of their series at Citi Field on Wednesday night.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 90-38 this season and have won three games in a row. Los Angeles won Game 1 of this series by a score of 4-3 on Tuesday night. The Los Angeles pitching staff has a 2.83 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP, and a .210 opponent batting average this season. The Dodgers offense has scored 690 runs with a .262 batting average and a .338 on base percentage. Mookie Betts is batting .282 with 31 home runs and 69 RBI’s for the Dodgers this season. The projected starter for Los Angeles is Tyler Anderson, who is 13-2 with a 2.69 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 140.2 innings pitched this season.

The New York Mets are 82-48 this season and have lost two games in a row. Prior to losing Game 1 of this series, New York won three out of four games against the Rockies. The New York pitching staff has a 3.53 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a .236 opponent batting average. The Mets offense has scored 610 runs with a .257 batting average and a .329 on base percentage this year. Pete Alonso is batting .271 with 31 home runs and 105 RBI’s for the Mets this season. The projected starter for New York is Jacob deGrom, who is 3-1 with a 2.15 ERA and a 0.55 WHIP over 29.1 innings pitched this season.

Los Angeles is 45-10 in their last 55 games and 46-20 in their last 66 Wednesday games. The over is 6-2 in Los Angeles’ last 8 game two’s of a series. New York is 6-0 in their last 6 Wednesday games and 36-17 in their last 53 home games. The under is 12-3 in New York’s last 15 game two’s of a series. Los Angeles is 47-20 in these two teams last 67 head to head meetings.

This should be another great matchup to watch between two of the top teams in baseball. Both starting pitchers have an ERA under 2.70 and have been very impressive this season. I like the value that we are getting here with the Dodgers. Los Angeles has been so good this year that I cannot pass them up as an underdog with Anderson on the mound.
