Dodgers vs Mets Season History

Dodgers Mets Prediction Best Bets July 14

The Dodgers and Mets have faced off for a three game series already this year in Los Angeles. Surprisingly, the Mets were able to take 2 out of those 3 games in Southern California.

Clayton Kershaw was able to get the lone shutout win for the Dodgers, yet the Mets still won the series.

This time the Dodgers are the ones traveling to New York where the Mets are 20-19 at home this season. They also dropped two straight games before heading into the break.

On the other hand, the Dodgers put together some nice momentum going into the All Star festivities, winning four straight games before having some time off.

For tonight’s game, we have two studs on the mound, and I think they could do some shoving.

Get Ready for Justin & Julio to Deal

Dodgers Mets Prediction Best Bets July 14

Two of the league’s best face off in what should be a fantastic pitching battle.

And I’ve got my sets on backing at least one of them fairly heavily.

Although these squads have already played, these pitchers have not seen the opposing hitters this year.

As far as a side on this game, I lean with the Dodgers to beat the Mets tonight.

They are a much better team, competing for the top spot in the NL West, and after building momentum before the break, I think they continue it today on the hands of Julio Urías.

The Pick: Dodgers -1.5 (+140) BetUS

Julio Urías over 4.5 Strikeouts (-143) BetOnline

Dodgers Mets Prediction Best Bets July 14

Do not be afraid, pay the juiceman.

Urías has cleared this line in 7/12 starts this season, which includes two games where he only made it 3 innings before being pulled.

This season, the Mets only strikeout against lefties 20.7% of the time, ranking 20th in the MLB. However, over the past month, the Mets are 9th in strikeout percentage against LHP.

Urías is coming off a great start against Pittsburgh where he struck out 8 batters in 6 innings.

Although his home and road splits are significantly different, I trust Urías to continue his form from last start and mow down some batters tonight.

If you’re scared of the juice, you can find 6+ Ks available at around +104.
