Heading into Saturday night’s matchup between New York and Los Angeles, the Dodgers have taken the first 2 games of the series. However, look for the Mets to grab a win in game 3. On the season, New York has hit right-handed pitching well, ranking first in team batting average. Given Walker Buehler’s recent struggles, I like the Mets on the moneyline.
