How to safely and profitably bet the 2017 Los Angeles Dodgers

Los Angeles Dodgers make history on Saturday against Mets

Plus they have all gone seven innings multiple times this season, so they have the ability to go deep.

What's maybe remarkable about this 50-game stretch is the Dodgers have done it with a revolving door of players coming and going.

Left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu is the latest to pick up the baton and throw it past unsuspecting hitters.

Justin Turner's caught stealing turned into a two-out stolen base when a video review determined he reached around Amed Rosario to evade the rookie shortstop's tag, sparking a three-run first inning that started the record-setting Los Angeles Dodgers to an 8-0 rout of the Mets on Sunday night and their first season sweep of NY.

It was the 15th series sweep of the season for the Dodgers.

Steven Matz's rough season continued and the Mets scratched out just two baserunners, a third-inning single and ninth-inning walk as they fell to the MLB-best Dodgers, 8-0. Though he gave up a hit to Travis d'Arnaud in the third, Ryu managed to strike out the next two batters and concluded the inning with a ground out.

The Dodgers executed a double steal after a walk, putting Turner and Cody Bellinger in position to score on a soft single up the middle.

"When Steven got healthy, we saw in his first three starts what he's capable of and he's fought some other issues since and try to make sure he knows he's got to pitch through it, he's not going to feel good every time out", Collins said.

The back of the Dodgers' rotation has already turned into a series of "Survivor" episodes with each start an immunity challenge for pitchers such as Ryu and Kenta Maeda. This means that they are one of the teams that have their starters going six-plus innings the least.

"Obviously, I like history", Roberts said.

Matz is pitching. So check that box.

Ryu was dominant Sunday. Hyun-Jin Ryu tossed another seven shutout innings as he continues his return to old form.

"It's a wave that we're riding", manager Dave Roberts said. "We talk about that a lot - from the first pitch having that conviction and attacking the zone which he did all night with his entire mix". But, overall, the Mets can't get out of their own way. "This guys has got too good of stuff". "Then they can accomplish that before they even get to the big leagues".

We do know this, the Dodgers are dominant and the Mets are not.

The comeback started in the sixth inning against Mets starter Seth Lugo, who had pitched 4.2 hitless innings.

Los Angeles (79-32) won all seven games this season against the Mets, outscoring them 57-15 in those games.

Two of those came in Sunday's beating. This season, the former Met leads the National League in batting average (.349) and on-base percentage (.442). Justin Turner and Cody Bellinger each went yard with two RBIs, with Turner adding a double as part of his 2 for 4 day at the dish while Bellinger hit his team-leading 32nd homer of the season.

The five home runs equaled a season high for Los Angeles, delighting plenty of vocal Dodgers fans in the Citi Field crowd of 40,060.

Last summer, they made a small trade with the Seattle Mariners when they sent young pitcher Zach Lee north in exchange for Taylor. It's a bit of a junk stat, but can be viewed as a substitute for "clutch", while keeping in mind that it's team-dependent to some extent (if you have more close games, you have more opportunities).
