Astros end win streak

Houston had its eight-game win streak come to an end on Sunday in an 8-7 loss to the Orioles. The Astros are 77-41 overall this season, 34-26 on the road and 62-51 with the under. Zack Greinke is getting the start today. He is 1-0 with the Astros with a 7.50 ERA.

The Astros are solid on the mound and at the plate this season. Houston is putting up 5.53 runs per game as a team while batting .275. On the mound, Houston posts a 3.72 team ERA with a 1.13 team WHIP. Yuli Gurriel is leading the team with 31 doubles, 23 home runs and 81 RBI while Alex Bregman is adding 23 doubles, 28 home runs and 74 RBI.

Sox shutout again

Chicago was shutout for the second time in three games when they took on the Oakland Athletics this weekend. The Sox are 52-64 overall, 28-30 at home and 60-52 with the under. Chicago has Dylan Cease on the mound today. He is 2-4 on the season with a 6.00 ERA.

The White Sox are putting up 4.12 runs per game this season while batting .253 as a team. On the mound, Chicago has a 4.86 team ERA and a 1.43 team WHIP. Jose Abreu is leading the team with 25 doubles, 24 home runs and 83 RBI while Yoan Moncada has 21 doubles, 20 home runs and 59 RBI. He is currently unavailable, as he is dealing with an injury.

MLB Betting Trends

Houston

The Astros are 6-2 in their last eight road games and 38-13 in their last 51 series openers.

Chicago

The White Sox have won four straight following a loss, but they are 16-35 in their last 51 against AL West opponents.

Prediction:

Greinke didn’t look great in his debut with Houston last week, giving up five runs in six innings to the Rockies. I think he bounces back today against a Chicago team that is struggling at the plate without one of their top bats. Cease has been competitive at times, but he is facing a really good Houston lineup today. The Astros are just the far better team and they should be able to prove it.

 

MLB Prediction: Houston Astros -1.5 (-165)
