The Chicago White Sox and Houston Astros face off on Friday in their second game of the MLB season at MinuteMaid Park. On Wednesday it was the White Sox that were able to secure the 3-2 victory. 

White Sox Betting Preview

The White Sox used two runs in the ninth inning to secure the one-run victory. Tim Anderson got his season out to a strong start finishing with two hits, one run, and one walk. Andrew Vaughn also finished with one hit and two runs. Getting the start for the White Sox will be Lance Lynn and last season he finished with an 8-7 record and an ERA of 3.99. In this game the White Sox need to get the offense going earlier, and try to take some of the pressure off of Lynn. 

Astros Betting Preview

The Astros have high expectations to start the season, but they didn’t look good in the first game of the season. The Astros couldn’t get anything going with the offense until the 7th inning. They also scored a run in the 9th inning, but it wasn’t enough as they lost. Yordan Alvarez finished with one hit, two runs, and one RBI. Cristian Javier will be on the mound for the Astros and last season he finished with an 11-9 record and an ERA of 2.54.

White Sox vs Astros Trends

The Astros are 6-0 in their last six games on Saturday. The White Sox are 4-1 in their last five games against the American League West. The under is 4-0-1 in the Astros last five games on grass. The under is 4-0-1 in the Astros last five games overall. The under is 3-0-1 in the White Sox’s last four road games. 

Shane’s Free Pick

All the trends point towards the under, and runs are going to be hard to come by again here. Javier has been lights out all season, and he’s going to lockdown the White Sox’s offense. The Astros offense might be a little better here, but not enough for this game to be higher scoring. Back the under to cash here.
