Sunday Night Baseball features a National League showdown in the Big Apple when the New York Mets host baseball’s No. 1 team the Los Angeles Dodgers. The current line on top sportsbooks has Los Angeles favored at -175, New York at +155, and the over/under run total on 9.5

Entering this game, Los Angeles on the season is 78-32 overall and 31-19 on the road. The Dodgers are 9-1 in their last 10 games played. New York on the season is 49-59 overall and 25-30 at home. The Mets are 2-8 in their last 10 games played.

The Dodgers have opened a 14.5-game lead in the NL West over the Colorado Rockies and 15 games over the Arizona Diamondbacks, while the Mets sit in fourth place in the NL East 16 games behind the first place Washington Nationals. Los Angeles beat New York 7-4 on Saturday to continue its historic run.

Los Angeles has used its excellent offensive production and strong pitching to become the top rated team in baseball with the best overall record. The Dodgers have won each of their five games this season against the Mets.

Hyun-Jin Ryu will start on the mound for Los Angeles. His last start was one of his best this season throwing seven shutout innings versus the San Francisco Giants, but he did not receive run support from his offense and did not get a decision in the game.

Offensively, the Dodgers are averaging 5.05 runs a game which is the fifth highest in baseball, with a team batting average of .259. The Dodgers pitching staff is first Major League Baseball in ERA at 3.11.

Steven Matz has not won since June 28 for the Mets. In his las outing, Matz gave up three runs over five innings and ended with a no decision, against Colorado. He pitched against Los Angeles in late June giving up three runs over six innings in another no decision.

New York has a strong offense scoring 4.79 runs a game which is No. 10 in baseball, with a team batting average of .252. However, the pitching staff has a team ERA of 4.90, which is No. 28 in baseball.

Los Angeles is 5-0 in its last 5 games played.

With this free pick, we like Los Angeles to win.
