New York Mets vs Los Angeles Dodgers 4/17/2023 Picks, Odds and Predictions

The New York Mets will go against the Los Angeles Dodgers in MLB action in Dodger Stadium, CA, on Monday, April 17, 2023, at 10:10 PM ET. With two victories in a row over the Oakland A’s, three victories overall, and now six victories in their previous eight matches, the New York Mets are off to a strong start on this west coast trip. SS Francisco Lindor tops the team with 15 RBI, while Pete Alonso leads the Mets with seven home runs, which ties him for the MLB lead. Even without having signed Justin Verlander as a free agent yet this year, the Mets won nine games going into the game on Sunday. The Mets won the series finale on Sunday in Oakland after Pete Alonso tied the score in the ninth inning with his major eighth home run and Eduardo Escobar reached on a wild pitch in the top of the tenth to give the Mets the victory.

David Peterson will start the series opener for the Mets in LA. In his three outings thus far this year, Peterson has a 4.91 ERA and a 0-2 record. In 14.2 innings of action, he gave up eight runs and 19 hits. Peterson walked eight hitters while striking out 16 opponents. In 13 outings last season on nine starts, Peterson went 2-3. In 52.2 innings, he gave up 41 hits, walked 25, struck out 69, and had an ERA of 3.25.

  • The New York Mets are 4-1 SU in their last 5 outings with the Dodgers.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of NY Mets’ last 6 games on the road.
  • The Mets are 6-14 SU in their last 20 games on the road against LA Dodgers.

New York Mets vs Los Angeles Dodgers 4/17/2023 Picks, Odds and Predictions

As the Los Angeles Dodgers prepare to face the New York Mets, they carry the weight of two successful regular seasons that ended in disappointment in the postseason. Although the Dodgers won the World Series in 2020, they were unable to advance further despite winning over 100 games in each of the last two seasons. In recent games, the Dodgers have struggled to find consistency, failing to win consecutive matches since their three-game winning streak on April 7th against the Diamondbacks. Dodgers ace Julio Urias suffered his first defeat of the year in a 3-2 setback to the Cubs on Sunday, allowing eight hits and three runs, including two home runs, in 5.2 innings of work. The Cubs’ pitching kept the Dodgers to just two runs, striking out 11 batters in the process.

The Dodgers will start hard-throwing righty Dustin May in Game 1 against the Mets. May underwent Tommy John surgery in the summer of 2022, causing him to miss almost the entire campaign. However, he has bounced back this season, making three starts and earning a 1-1 record with a 1.47 ERA. May has thrown 18.1 innings, giving up only seven hits and three runs. Despite struggling with control at times, May feels that the injury that kept him out last season has turned him into a high-volume strikeout artist.

  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ last 6 games at home.
  • The LA Dodgers are 14-6 SU in their last 20 games at home against NY Mets.
  • The Dodgers are 8-3 SU in their last 11 games with a team in the NL East Division.

New York Mets vs Los Angeles Dodgers. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Dodgers.To exploit the weakness of Mets’ left-handed pitcher David Peterson, the Dodgers may rely on their strong right-handed hitters. The Dodgers performed well against lefties last season, with a batting average of .251 and a winning percentage of .687. Dustin May, who has only given up three runs in three starts this season, has been particularly effective at home, holding opponents to just three hits and no runs in his lone start at Dodger Stadium.

The Dodgers have been productive offensively this season, ranking fourth in the league in runs per game, while the Mets are ranked 16th. Both teams have identical home records of 5-3 this season. With this in mind, it’s likely that the Dodgers will field a right-handed-heavy lineup against Peterson in the series opener. Overall, it’s predicted that the Dodgers will come out on top with a 6-4 victory.
