Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets Prediction

Whatever the Dodgers touch turns into gold. Left-hander Tyler Anderson will get tonight's start with a 6-0 record along with a 2.90 ERA to start the season. If you're not paying attention, the Dodgers have multiple pitchers with that kind of stat line. Anyway, Anderson has had a 4.18 xFIP in the last 30 days with 25.8% of strikeouts and 1.6% of walks. There are some blemishes though. He has allowed over 22% of line drives and is inducing just over 28% of ground balls in the last 30 days. Plus, the Mets aren't an easy team to face as a lefty. The Mets have a .186 ISO and .362 wOBA against lefties in the last 30 days. That lineup consists of Francisco Lindor, who jammed his finger on a hotel door prior to the first game of the series. This same projected lineup is also striking out just 19.1% of the time while hitting 29.7% of line drives against lefties in the last 30 days. On the other hand, Chris Bassitt will take the mound for the Mets with his 4-2 record and 3.66 ERA. The last time he was in California, Bassitt struggled immediately against the Giants. We’ll see how he responds today. In the last 30 days, Bassitt has a 4.93 xFIP and has walked 8.8% of batters. Those numbers won't cut it, especially against the Dodgers.

The right-hander has struggled against lefties recently. In the Dodgers lineup, there are four lefties that are very capable of hitting for power against Bassitt. The Dodgers lineup, as a whole, has a .218 ISO and wOBA of .359 in the last 30 days. The Dodgers have also done well-limiting ground balls and are hitting nearly 26% of line drives against righties in those last 30 days. Therefore, I'm going to roll with the over. Lindor is projected to be back in the lineup for the Mets and we've got two pitchers that will have tough tasks against some of the best lineups in baseball.
