The Los Angeles Dodgers return to California after a pretty successful road trip and will look to maintain that winning form as they prepare to meet the New York Mets in a four-game series with the opener set to be contested Monday night at Dodger Stadium in LA. This will be the first meeting between the two clubs this season.

The Dodgers are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now with 9 wins in their last ten games and their pitching rotation is slowly but surely getting healthier which is a scary thought considering that they are already the best in that department despite the shuffling of starters they had to deal with since the start of the season.

The Mets, who were riding along nicely winning five of their last six games had a great opportunity over the weekend to make some waves in the NL East with a four-game series against division rivals Washington. They were overwhelmed by Washington’s power starting trio in their first 3 games but avoided the sweep on Sunday behind Jacob DeGrom exquisite performance.

RH Zack Wheeler (3-4, 4.48 ERA) will attempt to bounce back from an awful defeat as he gets the ball for the Mets with LH Clayton Kershaw (9-2, 2.23 ERA) looking to solidify his status as best in the league when he takes the mound in the opener for the Dodgers.

After one of his best start of the season when he went 7 strong with just a run allowed in a no-decision at Texas, Wheeler without a doubt, suffered his worst career defeat when he was plastered for eight runs on six hits and two homeruns in just 1 2/3 innings in a 14-3 drubbing at the hands of the Chicago Cubs on Tuesday. The 27-year old threw only 62 pitches in the loss so it is safe to assume that he will be fresh for this upcoming start. The Georgia native will face Los Angeles for the first time in his career.

Really nothing much to say about Kershaw other than the fact he remains the best pitcher in the business. The 29-year old leads the NL in ERA, is tied for the lead in wins, quality starts and all that is accomplished with an offense that has often forgotten to support the lefty with the proper amount of runs. Kershaw is 2-0 with a 1.71 ERA in June and admitted that he is struggling with his stuff of late. Ouch! The Texan has been a beast against New York. He is 7-0 with a ridiculous 1.29 ERA and 84 K’s in 11-career starts against New York. Oh! And he also has 2 career complete games shutout versus the Mets.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Dodgers favorites at 320-moneyline with the total sitting at 7.
