Houston is 37-15 in their last 52 Tuesday games and 2-6 in their last 8 road games. The over is 6-1 in Houston’s last 7 Tuesday games. Chicago is 5-0 in their last 5 game two’s of a series and 6-0 in their last 6 home games. The under is 20-8-2 in Chicago’s last 30 Tuesday games. Houston is 20-9 in these two teams last 29 head to head meetings.
Houston led Monday’s game for 7.5 innings before the White Sox put up four runs in the bottom of the 8th inning to win. In this game, we are going to see a fantastic pitching matchup, with both pitchers below a 2.00 ERA. Verlander and Cease have been nearly untouchable this season and I have to roll with the under here. I am expecting a very low scoring game.
