LA Dodgers vs New York Mets Prediction

The LA Dodgers are not only one of the more trustworthy teams in baseball despite 22 losses, and the Mets have been arguably the most disappointing team in baseball. James Paxton has been sharp all season, and the Dodgers win with him on the mound. David Peterson hasn't pitched since September and is coming off a major surgery. We have no idea what to expect from Peterson, and it could take him a while to get back in the swing of things. The Dodgers are more than reasonably priced and are more trustworthy in this spot. Give me the Dodgers.
