Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets: Picks, Predictions, Odds and Player Props

The Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Mets were supposed to kick off their three-game series on Memorial Day, but the forecast postponed the series opener to today.

Now, the teams will face off twice on Tuesday before wrapping up the series on Wednesday afternoon.

Although both teams had World Series aspirations entering the season, it's been a rocky start for New York, while Los Angeles has shown why they're the current favorites to win it all.

Without further ado, let's dive into our Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets picks for the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, where Gavin Stone will go up against Jose Quintana.

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. New York Mets betting picks and predictions

Dodgers -1.5 (+125)

The Dodgers and Mets will have already played one game against one another before tonight's matchup, and Los Angeles is tipped to win big in Tuesday's nightcap.

The first game of doubleheader features two ace pitchers, but the second pits Gavin Stone (3.60 ERA) against Jose Quintana (5.13 ERA). Neither pitcher has blown hitters away this year, but Stone has been trending in the right direction while Quintana has struggled this past month. The Dodgers are 6-3 in Stone's nine starts this season, and four of those wins have come by three runs or more. He actually faced the Mets back on April 20, and although he struggled in that game (3.0 IP, 2 ER and 5 BB), he's turned his season around since.

In five starts since that defeat to New York, Stone has pitched 32.0 innings and allowed just eight earned runs (2.25 ERA). The Dodgers are 4-1 in those games and only lost his latest start against the Diamondbacks (7-3). If he can bounce back from his latest start, the Dodgers should win big.

For New York, Jose Quintana will toe the rubber, and he's struggled. The Mets are 1-3 in his four starts this month, and Quintana has allowed eight, four, two and three earned runs against the Rays, Braves, Phillies and Guardians. Yes, these are four strong teams with playoff aspirations, but the Dodgers are just as strong and only trail the Phillies in total runs this season (270).

The Mets are 5-5 in Quintana's 10 starts this year, and each loss has come by 2+ runs, so it is worth backing the Dodgers -1.5 in the second game of today's doubleheader.

Over 8 (-110)

The second one of our picks focuses on the total, and the game looks good to finish with Over 8 Runs.

Quintana's struggles this past month have been covered, and three of his four starts finished with 9+ runs. Although Stone has impressed on the mound, his three road starts have finished with an average of 11.7 runs per contest. 

The Mets are 20th in the MLB in scoring (222 runs), but they're better against right-handed pitchers (.238 batting average) compared to left-handed pitchers (.228 batting average). Additionally, they've scored four runs or more in five of their last eight starts, which should be more than enough to push this total over 8.5 runs. 

The Dodgers have struggled at the plate in their last five games entering this series (2.2 runs per game), but could bounce back against Quintana in a big way.

Mookie Betts Over 1.5 Total Bases

There are plenty of player props to choose from, and Mookie Betts Over 1.5 Total Bases stands out. The Dodgers All-Star is only behind his teammate, Shohei Ohtani, in batting average this season and only Luis Arraez has more hits than Betts.

Not only has Betts played well this season, but he has fared well against Quintana throughout his career. Betts has faced Quintana 27 times in his career and has seven hits, including four singles, two doubles and a home run to go with two walks. Mookie is currently riding a four-game hitting streak and has 2+ total bases in five of the Dodgers last seven road games.
