What are the Betting Odds for Dodgers Mets Tonight?

Another crazy October has arrived, and just like the last one, the World Series again features the New York Mets and the Los Angeles Dodgers. In fact, this season the Series is being played at Dodger Stadium. It will be the first time in Series history that the two cities have been on different sides of the rivalry.

This year’s World Series has been dubbed the “Battle of New York,” and with good reason. The two teams have combined for 15 Championship wins, with the Dodgers winning 11 times and the Mets 4 times. The teams have also combined for 15 playoff wins, with the Dodgers claiming 11 of those wins and the Mets 4.

The point here is that both teams are good and there is plenty on the line, which makes this year’s World Series even more compelling. The matchups are good too: the pitching-rich Mets go up against the pitching-challenged Dodgers. It’s the exact type of matchup that you want to see in October. The only difference is that this year both teams are healthy and looking for revenge.

So, let’s break down the odds and see what’s in store for fans who want to wager on the 2019 World Series.

How to Bet on the World Series

There are two ways to wager on the World Series this year. You can either go with one of the many bookmakers available online or get paid to place bets at certain casinos. Let’s examine both options.

First off, if you’re looking to make some extra cash via online betting, check out the many bookmakers that are available to U.S. residents. The list ranges from the familiar, like Bovada or MyBookie, to brands that aren’t as well-known but offer fantastic services, such as DraftKings or FanDuel. All of these bookmakers officially offer World Series odds, so you’ll know exactly what you’re getting into.

That being said, if you really want to profit off of this year’s World Series, you should consider making the trek to a casino. Many casinos offer good bets on sporting events, and the best part is that you don’t necessarily need to be a member of a casino group to place them. So, if you’re looking to make some extra cash, you could end up doing some side-hustling while you’re at it.

Which City Will Score First?

Both the Mets and the Dodgers enter the World Series with solid batting averages. The Mets are first in the league with a.288 average, whereas the Dodgers come in second with a.278 average. As a result, scoring first in this year’s World Series is pretty much a given. However, which team will get the glory of being the first to score is another matter. Oddsmakers have made their predictions, and here are their thoughts on which city will score the first run in the series:

  • Bovada: Mets +250
  • MyBookie: Mets +260
  • Pinnacle: Mets +270
  • Betonline: Mets +275
  • Lazada: Dodgers +300
  • Intertops: Dodgers +305

Even though the baseball season is already half over, you can start placing bets on the World Series now. Just remember that since the World Series is being played at Dodger Stadium, the Series runs slightly late. The last game of the season usually isn’t played until October, so you have extra time to place bets and watch the games.
