The Chicago White Sox will host the Houston Astros for their series finale from Guaranteed Rate Field. Chicago stole game two in a low-scoring affair, 3-1. 

Astros Betting Preview

Houston enters at 20-19 after falling to Chicago. The Astros can’t pull away from the .500 mark right now, and they’ll look to avoid falling to it on Sunday. The Houston offense is scoring 4.66 runs per game, while batting .238, with a .306 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.36 ERA, with a 1.21 WHIP. Yordan Alvarez has homered in back-to-back wins, and he leads Houston in HR (.282) and RBI (35). Mauricio Dubon produced an RBI double in last night’s win, and he’s first on the team in BA (.293) and hits (39). Kyle Tucker also recorded a run in the win over Chicago, and he’s second on the team with 25 RBI.

Hunter Brown (3-1, 3.23 ERA, 6 Ks) will get the ball for Houston. The sophomore pitcher has been a tale of two tapes this season. In seven starts Brown has allowed three runs, and he’s tossed shutout ball in three of the other ones.

White Sox Betting Preview

Chicago enters at 14-27 after defeating Houston. The White Sox finally got back into the win column, and they’ll look to sneak in a series win here. The Chicago offense is 4.72 scoring runs per game, while batting .238, with a .306 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 5.72 ERA, with a 1.21 WHIP. Andrew Vaughn has a hit in five of the last six games, and he leads the Sox in RBI (29). Luis Robert Jr. supplied the lone run last night, and he’s first on the team in homers (9) and runs scored (25). 

Lucas Giolito (2-2, 3.59 ERA, 41 Ks) will get the call for Chicago. The eighth-year pitcher put together another strong outing last week in Kansas City, striking out nine in six innings to earn his second victory of the season. Giolito has really been solid this season despite the Sox troubles, and he’s cleared seven strikeouts in four of his last six outings. 

Houston vs Chicago Trends

Houston is 19-20 against the spread this season, with a 19-19-1 O/U record. Chicago is 19-22 ATS this year, with a 21-17-3 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Chicago struck back last night, and with another pitchers’ duel potentially in play, I support buying into it here. After two low scoring games, this series could use some fireworks, but with neither team at their best right now, the Under has a real chance here. Personally, I like leaning on another strong effort from Lucas Giolito to lead them to victory. He’s been their best pitcher this season, and it could simply come down to run support again. Spot the White Sox the runs for safety here.
