The Houston Astros look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Astros have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last 10 games. The Astros have won six of their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Jose Altuve leads Houston with 60 hits and 25 RBI while Evan Gattis and Chris Carter have combined for 56 RBI. The Houston Astros have won six of their last eight home games. Dallas Keuchel takes the hill, and he’s 6-1 with a 1.98 ERA and 49 strikeouts this season. Keuchel is 1-1 with a 3.97 ERA and nine strikeouts in his career against the White Sox.
The White Sox are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 2 of a series and 1-4 in Quintanas last 5 starts. The Astros are 4-1 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 14-3 in Keuchels last 17 starts. The White Sox are 4-0 in Quintanas last 4 starts vs. Astros.
While Keuchel doesn't lose very often, all the value is on the White Sx in this spot. The White Sox have played their best ball on the road, and Quintana has beaten the Astros in his last four games. I'll take a shot with the road team and heavy plus money.
