New York Mets vs. Los Angeles Dodgers MLB Prediction:
I feel the Dodgers will keep rolling in this series. They have already shown they can take down the Mets and I do not see that changing in this series.
Los Angeles is the better team here and I feel they will take care of business at Dodger Stadium, somewhere they have played quite well at this year.
I do not see this being a high scoring game. I feel the total of 9.5 is a little high for this matchup and I am going under.
I like the Dodgers to win and the total to go under 9.5 runs.
