The Jays have not had the start most were anticipating but they are now riding a 3 game winning streak.
On May 5th, their bats came life, driving in 12 runs in a 12-2 victory. The Jays currently rank 15th in runs per game in the MLB, but we would expect this to start climbing in May.
On the other hand, Clayton Kershaw is taking the mound for the Dodgers and has been lights out this season, however, gave up 5 in his last outing. Dickey has been the polar opposite, he’s had a terrible start but only gave up 1 in his last outing vs Texas.
Toronto Blue Jays
The recent winning streak is giving a spark to the club and historically the team has performed well in May. Edwin in particular seems to always put up big numbers in May.
He had 6 RBI’s last night with 3 extra base hits, including a Home Run.
He’s heating up! Some of the issues around the 7-9 spots of the batting order look to be coming around with Barney platooning 2nd hitting .306 and Carrera hitting .359.
Martin has also upped his average and hit a walk off the other night.
Donaldson is having another MVP type season, leading the American League in Home Runs and Runs Scored. He’s also atop the leaders in RBI’s, Slugging % and Hits. 1 through 9 the Jays offense is starting to look like that of 2015.
The real concern is R.A Dickey, his knuckle ball seems to be like flipping a coin so you’ll never know which Dickey you’ll get.
The bullpen has also been quite shaky to start the season so the pitching on Saturday afternoon is a legitimate concern and may ultimately determine the outcome.
Clayton Kershaw is one heck of a pitcher and is pitching phenomenal as always, so far this season. You would expect nothing less from him against the Jays on Saturday. He has a 1.96 ERA, ranking 8th in the NL.
The Jays bats may not have an answer to this stud on Saturday in this interleague matchup.
The Dodgers are 3-7 in their last 10 and this is mainly due to inconsistent run production. In their 3 wins, they put up 23 runs but in their 7 losses, they only put up 16 runs.
No Dodger is hitting above .300 but they do have the ability to explode with runs as of those 3 wins in their last 10, they had a 12 run game and an 10 run game.
Against Dickey would be the most likely time for the Dodgers to put up a lot of runs vs the Jays.

Free Toronto Blue Jays vs. LA Dodgers MLB Prediction:
With a pitching matchup heavily favorable for the Dodgers, expect the Dodgers to pull out with the win here, even though Kershaw lost and Dickey won his last outing, we would expect Kershaw to bounce back. The Jays offence has not shown a consistent high output just yet.
The game has potential to be high scoring 25% of the time but I believe this one will stay a low scoring afternoon affair, 7 runs or less.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Dodgers ML
I’m hesitant to take an under on a team like Toronto, since they are able to put up big runs any given inning. However, Kershaw is on the
mound and Jays have not shown any consistency putting up big innings just yet.
