Mets vs Dodgers prediction

Once again, the Dodgers are massive favorites at home, and you're paying inflated prices if laying it. Yes, the Dodgers are stacked and Tyler Glasnow is a talented pitcher, but they've underachieved overall up to this point. Also because of these losses as big favorites, the Dodgers are the seventh least profitable team in MLB at the moment. Adrian Houser hasn't been great up to this point, but the Mets are the hottest team in baseball with 6 straight wins and the offense has caught fire. Once again, I'll take the plus money with the Mets.
