Dodgers hit five HRs in blowout
Los Angeles cruised to a 16-3 home win Tuesday night over Toronto to move to 83-44 overall and 49-16 at home. A.J. Pollock helped lead the Dodgers offense as he went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, a double, two walks and two runs scored. Max Muncy was 1-for-1 with a solo homer, three walks and three runs. Will Smith finished 1-for-4 with a home run, a walk, two runs scored and two RBIs. Cody Bellinger ended the night 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, two runs and three RBIs. Chris Taylor was 3-for-4 with a homer, a walk, three runs scored and four RBIs. Corey Seager went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs. Joc Pederson finished 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBIs. Clayton Kershaw passed Sandy Koufax on the all-time Los Angeles wins list as he gave up three earned runs on six hits with six strikeouts and three walks over six innings.

MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are 7-3 in their last 10 road games versus a right-handed starter. Toronto is 3-13 in its last 16 interleague games.
The Dodgers are 5-0 in the last five Buehler interleague starts. Los Angeles is 7-1 in the last eight meetings.
This probably won't be a complete annihilation like last night, but Buehler is having a fantastic season and is going to give the Jays a much different look than Kershaw. With Toronto likely to use several underwhelming pitchers, the LA offense should feast again. Go with the runline bet again for a team as good at home as the Dodgers are.
