The Houston Astros and the Chicago White Sox will meet up on the MLB diamond to begin their series with game one of a doubleheader Tuesday. 

This game was rained out Monday and pushed back to 

Houston just finished a set against the Orioles this weekend. The Astros won 3-2 Friday and by a whopping 23-2 Saturday. In the Sunday game, Houston fell in a tough one 8-7.
For Monday’s outing, the Astros will send out Zack Greinke. This year Greinke is 11-4 with a 3.08 ERA and 137 strikeouts.
Over on the White Sox’ side, they’re coming off a series versus the A’s. Chicago split the first two games of that set, then in the Sunday finale the White Sox fell 2-0.

For Monday’s game, the Sox will be sending out Dylan Cease in the start. Over 33.0 innings and a 2-4 record this year, Cease has a 6.00 ERA with 33 Ks and 15 BBs.

The Astros are 6-2 in their last eight Monday games and 38-13 in their last 51 in game one of a series. The under is 39-18-2 in Houston’s last 59 Monday games and they’re 41-15 in their last 56 versus the AL Central.

Meanwhile, the Sox are 1-4 in cease’s last five starts and the over is 4-1 in their last five Monday games. Chicago is 2-9 in the last 11 meetings between these teams and the under is 4-1 in their last five meetings.

Cease kicked things off this year July 3 with a win, but then went on a four-game losing skid where he allowed 17 earned across a quartet of starts.

Cease got things going again in Detroit his last time up however, bagging two earned in 5.0 innings on seven hits. That said, I don’t think he’ll be able to control the Astros bats here so I’m going Houston.
