Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction:
The Dodgers have been rolling and I feel they will finish off the sweep on Sunday night. I have very little confidence backing the Mets here.
Los Angeles is the better team and I feel they will be able to do enough enough against this Mets team. I just do not see New York getting this win.
LA has the clear pitching advantage with Scherzer on the mound. I look for him to toss a solid game and for the Dodgers to have success against Carrasco.
I like the Dodgers on the moneyline.
