I look for the Dodgers to keep rolling in this game and for the Mets to keep up their struggles.
Los Angeles is a much better team and I feel they will show that on Saturday.
The Dodgers have the pitching advantage with Scherzer on the mound and I feel he will be strong in this one and LA will hit around Hill.
Give me the Dodgers on the moneyline.
