Why you should back the DodgersLos Angeles right-hander Dustin May has been outstanding through his first three starts of the season, going 1-1 with a 1.47 ERA. May allowed one run across 13 innings through his first two outings, shutting down Arizona twice. He added 5.1 innings at San Francisco his last time out, giving up two earned runs on two hits while striking out three. Mets left-handed starter David Peterson is off to a disappointing start, going 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA. He has only faced the Dodgers once during his career, allowing four runs (one earned) through just 3.2 innings last June. Los Angeles is 14-6 in its last 20 home games against New York and has won eight of its last 11 games against NL East teams. See which team to pick here.Why you should back the MetsLos Angeles is playing without starting catcher Will Smith, who was placed on the seven-day concussion injured list on Sunday. The 28-year-old is hitting .333 with three home runs in his first 39 at-bats of the season, so he will be difficult to replace. Meanwhile, New York third baseman Brett Baty is getting set for his season debut after batting .400 with five home runs and 15 RBI in nine games for Triple-A Syracuse.
Baty is New York’s No. 2 prospect according to MLB Pipeline, and he should provide more offense than struggling Eduardo Escobar, who is 6 of 48 at the plate this season. The Mets are led by slugger Pete Alonso, who blasted his MLB-best eighth home run in Sunday’s win. They have won four of their last five games against the Dodgers and are in better form coming into Monday’s series opener. See which team to pick here.
