The LA Dodgers are on the verge of tying Arizona for the lead in the Western division, and all they need is another victory against the struggling Blue Jays. Toronto lost four consecutive games, hit rock bottom in its highly competitive division, and is searching for its first victory against the Dodgers in nine games.
Bet: LA Dodgers
Odds: Winner Sports 2.00
The last time the Dodgers sat on the first place in their division was almost one year ago, but now they need Arizona to falter against the Cubs to retake the lead. They will have Ryu as a starting pitcher and with seven victories in 10 decisions, he should help them keep the winning streak alive. LA won eight consecutive games against the Blue Jays and 21/26, so there is no reason for them to be afraid of this visit to Canada.
The Dodgers have just one concern, as they hope that Matt Kemp will be fit to play after suffering an injury in the previous game. The hosts will give the ball to Josh Johnson despite the fact that their starting pitcher has compiled an earned run average of 5.16 and lost five decisions out of six. His last victory came one month ago and since then he conceded an average of more than six runs per game, making him very vulnerable against the hard-hitting Dodgers.
Bookmakers in general and Winner Sports in particular are very generous when it comes to the odds offered for an LA Dodgers victory. As long as they revolve around even value, it would be a mistake not to take advantage of them and back the red hot visitors against the reeling Blue Jays.
