Los Angeles Dodgers vs Toronto Blue Jays prediction

I'm not a fan of bullpen games, so I'm not running to the window to back the Dodgers and Michael Grove. However, the Dodgers and Blue Jays have been heading in different directions this week and Kevin Gausman has been terrible in the month of April. I doubt Gausman finds his footing against a lineup like the Dodgers. The Toronto Blue Jays have gone cold offensively, and now they're throwing out a shaky pitcher. Bad matchup across the board. Give me the Dodgers and the RL for max betting value.
