Houston Astros vs Chicago White Sox by Sors
Pick based on Asian handicap. Not familiar with handicaps? Read our Asian handicap betting guide
The rookie pitched well in his previous two starts this season, allowing 3 hits and 1 run, while striking out five over 4 2/3 innings against Oakland on May 18 (1-2) and 6 hits and 2 runs over six innings in a 3-2 win at Detroit last Saturday, with six strikeouts.
This will be his first start against the White Sox.
Carlos Rodon (1-0 with a 4.03 ERA), who will start for Chicago, is coming off a strong outing against the Indians, in which he gave up 4 hits and 1 run over six innings in a 3-4 loss on May 20.
On the other hand, the left-hander yielded 5 hits and 5 runs over four innings in his previous start away from home in 2015 and had obvious problems with his command in his previous three starts this season, in which he walked fifteen over sixteen innings.
Rodon has never faced the Astros or any of their hitters before.
The Astros have scored four or more runs in seven of their last eight games at Minute Maid Park, while the White Sox have obvious problems in offense lately, as they were limited to three or fewer runs in eight of their last ten games.
I think that Houston will win the opening game of this series with more than one run difference.
