The Toronto Blue Jays have lost five of their last six games when scoring three or less runs.

Jacob Waguespack gets the ball, and he is 4-1 with a 4.20 ERA and 35 strikeouts this season. This will be Waguespack’s first career game against the Dodgers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Dodgers have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. The Los Angeles Dodgers have won 12 of their last 13 games when scoring four or more runs. Cody Bellinger leads the Dodgers with 141 hits and 100 RBI while Justin Turner and Max Muncy have combined for 231 hits and 142 RBI.

The Blue Jays are 9-2 in their last 11 during game 2 of a series, 16-35 in their last 51 Wednesday games and 0-4 in their last 4 interleague road games. The Dodgers are 5-1 in their last 6 Wednesday games, 5-2 in their last 7 during game 2 of a series and 4-1 in Buehler's last 5 home starts. The Blue Jays are 1-6 in the last 7 meetings and the over is 7-2-1 in the last 10 meetings. The over is 5-2 in Dodgers last 7 overall. The under is 3-0-2 in Blue Jays last 5 overall.
Waguespack has allowed 42 hits and 19 earned runs in his last 41 innings, and he has a 3.46 ERA and .253 allowed batting average on the road. Buehler has allowed 40 hits and 15 earned runs in his last 44.1 innings, and he has a 2.33 ERA and 1.96 allowed batting average at home. Waguespack has been decent enough lately to be given a shot at this price, but it's just so tough to bet against the Dodgers at home this season, and Buehler is one of those pitchers who has thrived at home this season. It's even tougher to fade the Dodgers after how last night played out. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for a better price.
