Astros' 10-game win streak snapped

Houston lost for the first time in 11 games Sunday afternoon as it fell 4-3 at Boston to drop to 31-16 overall and 15-12 on the road. Carlos Correa went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBIs in the loss. Alex Bregman went 0-for-1 with three walks and a run. Josh Reddick was 2-for-2 with two doubles and two walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The under is 5-1 in the last six White Sox road games. The under is 8-3 in the last 11 Chicago games on Mondays.

Houston

The under is 4-0 in the last four Astros games overall. The under is 36-15-2 in the last 53 Houston games on Mondays.

Prediction:

I'm sure Houston will score some runs here, but can Chicago keep up against Peacock? Both teams are coming off weekend series' with no day off plus travel and the bats might be a bit tired. The Astros might be a little uncomfortable facing so many different pitchers, while Peacock has been pretty locked in lately. Going with the under in the series opener.
