This game features a pair of teams heading in opposite directions as the Dodgers close out their series north of the border against the Blue Jays.
Los Angeles Dodgers
Despite a 14-15 record, the L.A. Dodgers are in prime contention in the N.L. West. The Dodgers are in the middle of a nasty slide, winning just two of their last 10 games.
Plagued by cold bats, the team that many experts picked to win the division is averaging less than 3 runs per game over their last 10. That’s not going to win you many baseball games.
The Dodgers will send rookie Ross Stripling to the mound to try to right the ship. Stripling comes in with a 0-2 record and a 4.33 ERA.
Since his near no-hitter against the Giants on April 8, Stripling has gone four straight starts where he failed to go past the sixth inning.
Over his last two starts, the young Stripling has allowed eight earned runs in 10 combined innings.
Toronto Blue Jays
The Blue Jays look like they’ve finally found their groove after slumping for the first three weeks. Toronto has scored 17 runs in its last two games, and Josh Donaldson continues to tear the cover off the baseball.
Despite their penchant for scoring runs, the Blue Jays have relied heavily on their pitching to get them through games thus far.
The Jays are 6th the majors in ERA and 11th in WHIP. They’ll send Marco Estrada to the mound to try to fend off the Dodgers. He comes in with a 1-2 record but has an impressive 2.64 ERA and an even more impressive 1.17 WHIP.
Over his last two home starts, Estrada has allowed a combined five hits and four earned runs in 12.2 innings.
Though he’s lacked the run support, Estrada has been absolutely dominant at home this year.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Dodgers are 2-8 in their last 10 games.
- Dodgers are 5-3 in day games.
- Dodgers are 1-5 as underdogs.
- Blue Jays are 7-3 in day games.
- Blue Jays O/U is 9-20-2 this year.
Free LA Dodgers vs. Toronto Blue Jays MLB Prediction:
The Dodgers aren’t a very good team right now, and Clayton Kershaw can’t pitch for them every night. The Blue Jays, on the other hand, send one of their best pitchers to the hill in Marco Estrada.
The veteran Estrada has only allowed four earned runs in three home starts, and the Dodgers just can’t hit the baseball. I’ll side with the Jays.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Toronto ML
The hotter team is sending the better pitcher to the mound, so I like the home team to close out this series with a win.
