Los Angeles Dodgers Vs. New York Mets Baseball betting odds, picks and game preview

At the beginning of the season, the New York Mets were ignored by the baseball betting community as a legitimate contender. New York has been flirting with a National League wild-card spot for most of the season. However, their lack of consistency may be too much to overcome. By contrast, the Dodgers have been one of the most consistent teams in baseball this season. Despite their high prices, Los Angeles has been in the black with the odds. Following two World Series failures, nothing less than a Fall Classic win will suffice. And LA is looking the part!

Los Angeles Dodgers

Overall the Dodgers are 94-52 with 69 games going over. From this point, LA has led the National League West all season. LA is one of the most balanced teams in baseball. They rank fifth for run production and third for home runs. In the same way, the Dodgers rank best for staff earned run average and fourth for quality starts. It is true that Los Angeles commands some of the highest prices on the board. But LA has been so good it has overcome that after two years in the red.
