Noah Syndergaard (1-1, 3.75 ERA, 13 Ks) will take the mound for Los Angeles. The former Mets product pitched well versus the Cubs last week, striking out nine in six innings of work, despite earning the losing decision. 

New York vs Los Angeles Trends

NYM is 10-8 against the spread this season, with a 10-8 over/under record. LAD is 8-10 ATS this year, with a 9-8-1 O/U record.

Corey's Free Pick

The writing is on the wall for the Mets to bounce back with a victory here. Prior to yesterday’s master class from Clayton Kershaw, New York was streaking, and there’s a chance lightning strikes twice with a veteran gem from the mound. Mad Max thrived in Los Angeles, and a solid outing from him should keep the Mets in this contest.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
