LA Dodgers vs New York Mets Prediction 

Both of these teams come into this series struggling over the last week, but the Mets are coming off of a dramatic win on Sunday afternoon. The Mets are just 11-16 on the road and their pitching staff has not been very good recently, but the Dodgers offense is also struggling. In game one, the Dodgers have the pitching advantage with Glasnow over Megill, while they also have the advantage in game two with Stone over Quintana. The Mets are a mess right now and I think their best chance to win is game two, but I don’t like how Quintana has pitched this year. My LA Dodgers vs New York Mets prediction is for the Dodgers to win by at least two runs in game one and the Dodgers to get the win in game two.
