New York Mets (8-8) vs. Los Angeles Dodgers (11-8)

As we head towards the end of April, the MLB season is heating up with intriguing matchups, and this Friday’s game between the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium is no exception. Both teams are striving to climb the standings early in the season. The Mets are coming off a stronger recent performance, leveling their record at .500, while the Dodgers, despite a better overall start, have stumbled recently. This game, being broadcast nationally on MLBN, promises to be a pivotal contest for fans and bettors alike, making it a prime target for MLB picks and predictions.

The Mets have posted a positive trend in their last five games with four wins in them. This is shown in their hitting and pitching improvements, with a team batting average of .248 and a number of respectable ERA of 3.48. The offensive line-up has already amassed 75 runs on 136 hits, which is a good indication of a propensity for high-scoring games, particularly with a .333 OBP (on-base percentage). Their performance in away games, an attribute which could give their team an edge when facing off against the Dodgers away from home.

On the contrary, the Dodgers have witnessed a stumble as they lost four out of the last five games. In spite of this, the team has the highest runs scored which is 100 and their batting average is .264 in the whole league. The power hitting dominates with 25 home runs and the top slugging percentage of .433. Nevertheless, their pitching style has been rather inconsistent with an ERA of 4.37. The club needs to plug their leaks on the mound to avoid the Mets’ batters taking advantage of their current weaknesses.

Sean Manaea (1-1, 4.3 ERA) vs. Yoshinobu Yamamoto (1-1, 4.5 ERA)

The 4.3 ERA of Sean Manaea (Mets) might seem less promising than those of the others on the list, but his 18 strikeouts limited to only 7 walks in 14.2 innings is appealing. He could use his strikeout capability, which may well prove to be decisive against a Dodgers lineup that usually hits deep, foul, well beyond the fences. Manaea of his current form is certainly one of the main players who is supposed to limit some of The Dodgers’ star hitters, but the fact that his WHIP is high (1.38) means that he is also involved in some cases.

The Dodgers’ Yoshinobu Yamamoto holds an ERA of 4.5, but the metric of WHIP that stops him at 1.06 shows that he keeps hitters within control more effectively. The 21 strikeouts in 16 innings shown by him are nice but it must be overseen by him to face a Mets team that is currently performing well. If he plays well like this it will be the factor that decides whether they are able to revive their early season mojo or not.
