Final Mets-Dodgers Prediction & Pick

The Dodgers are coming into this series off a series in which they lost two games to the Nationals, a team they should handle easily. Expect them to rebound in this series. They have the much better offense in this one and should be able to score a few runs off of Jose Butto. Still, Gavin Stone is giving up runs. The best lay in this game will be on the total. Take the over in this one.
