The Los Angeles Dodgers got incredibly hot in the second half of last season, but they really don't want to have to wait that long to make their move this year. That is why the presence of the New York Mets is a welcome sight, even if that has to come by way of a road series. On Wednesday night the Dodgers will go after their second straight victory in this visit to Queens as MLB baseball betting action gets underway at 7:10 PM ET at Citi Field in Flushing.
VietBet customers have seen the Dodgers win ten of their last eleven meetings against the Mets, who have actually been pretty good travelers this season but can't win many games at home (9-13 at the moment).
Hyun-jin Ryu. who is 3-2 on the season with a 3.00 ERA, returns from a stint on the disabled list to take the mound for the Dodgers, who are looking to improve their position in the National League West. Currently they are in third place, four games behind the San Francisco Giants, after their 9-4 victory over the Mets on Tuesday night, and they will face someone they haven't seen before - Jason deGrom, who was outstanding in his major league debut six days ago.
With Tuesday's loss, the Mets fell to last place in the National League East, where they are five games behind the Atlanta Braves.
Over 7 Runs -115
Under 7 Runs -105
The big offensive weapon for the Dodgers lately has been Yasiel Puig, who has hit .411 over his last 18 games, with 22 RBI's. Last year's rookie sensation had a stellar outing on Tuesday, as he got on base five times in L.A.'s victory.
Ryu has not pitched since April 27. He has been on the DL while dealing with inflammation in his shoulder, and says he is 100% without any limitations being placed with him, but VietBet patrons were not impressed with the way he handled his last start, as he gave up six runs in five innings against the Colorado Rockies.
On the road, however, MLB baseball bettors need to take special note the Ryu performs, and then some. He has pitched 26 consecutive scoreless innings as a visitor. Will he have his work cut out for him on Wednesday night? Well, the Mets got eleven hits on their Tuesday defeat, but are hitting just .207 over their last six games. Curtis Granderson, the big off-season free agent acquisition, had a single, double and homer for them, but admittedly that is the exception rather than the rule, as he is hitting just .205 overall.
The Mets can use another nice outing from deGrom, who is taking a turn in the rotation while Dillon Gee is injured, and went seven solid innings against the Yankees last Thursday, giving up just four hits and a single run. He spent the early part of the year in Las Vegas (Triple-A), where he had a 2.58 ERA.
