Kiyoshi Mio-USA TODAY Sports/Sipa USA

Houston Astros vs Chicago White Sox: Both teams are struggling this season

After the Houston Astros failed to score a single run last night, they will try to bounce back tonight when they visit the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field.

 

The Astros have a tough month

The Houston Astros are second in the AL West with a 33-40 record. After losing three straight games to the Seattle Mariners, they avoided the sweep with a 4-0 win, which was their fourth win of the season without allowing a single run. They came in Chicago after winning the series against the Detroit Tigers but failed to score a single run  for the third time this season. The Astros have a 4.18 ERA, a .236 batting average, a .321 on-base percentage, and 1.32 walks plus hits per inning pitched. Jose Altuve leads the team with 87 hits and 42 runs for the season, and Kyle Tucker is tied for the fifth place in the MLB with 19 home runs.

 

The White Sox are the worst team in the league

The Chicago White Sox are at the bottom of the AL Central with the worst record in the league of 20 wins and 54 losses. After losing four consecutive games, they won 3 of the last 5 games including a 2-0 win last night against the Astros. The White Sox have a 4.85 ERA, a .248 batting average, a .330 on-base percentage, and 1.41 walks plus hits per inning pitched. Paul de Jong is the best player on the team with 53 hits, 26 runs and 14 home runs.

 

Betting Trends

The White Sox are 5-15 SU in their last 20 games overall, 3-9 SU in their last 12 games at home and 6-12 SU in their last 18 games against teams from the AL West. The White Sox have played under the total wun line in 5 of their last 7 games overall, 4 of their last 5 games against Houston, 5 of the last 6 against them at home and 4 of their last 5 games against teams from the AL West. The Astros are 1-9 SU in the last 10 games played on Wednesday and 2-4 SU in the last 6 games played as favorites. They have played under the total run line in 15 of their last 20 games overall and 11 of their last 13 games on the road.

 

Prediction and Conclusion

The Chicago White Sox have the worst record in the league, but they played way better than the record shows in last night’s 2-0 win over the Astros. Now the White Sox will go out with their best pitcher, Garrett Crochet, who is 6-5 for the season with a 3.16 ERA, 116 K, 82.2 IP, and 0.90 WHIP. The Astros will try to bounce back with Hunter Brown on the mound, who is 3-5 for the season with a 5.00 ERA, 76 K, 68.1 IP, and 1.43 WHIP. The Astros are the better team and cannot allow losing two straight against the White Sox. It will be tough to score a lot against Crochet, but the defense will do its job, and Houston will win this one.
