Zack Wheeler Faces Major Test On Sunday Night

The Los Angeles Dodgers are looming in an important game at Citi Field

The New York Mets have won 7 of Zack Wheeler’s last 9 starts heading into their matchup against the Los Angeles Dodgers on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball game.

Wheeler comes into this game on a hot stretch. Here’s what he’s managed to do in his last 3 starts:

9/10 vs. ARI: 7.0 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 7 K (W)

9/4 @ WSH: 5.0 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K (W)

8/30 @ PHI: 6.0 IP, 7 H, 1 ER, 3 BB, 4 K (ND)

He has avoided LA’s juggernaut of an offense this season and he was solid in his last matchup against them on September 5th of last season (7.0 IP, 3 H, 3ER, 2 BB, 9 K, W). 

The Mets opened as +120 home underdogs with Wheeler on the hill. Who would you bet on in this contest? Make sure to monitor this contest and access all updated data on the “Games” tab!
