MLB Baseball Gambling Total:
Two of the elite teams in all of baseball go head to head on Friday, as the Houston Astros head out on the road to play the Chicago White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field in Chicago.
The Houston Astros went 55-36 in the first half of the season, and the scariest thing is that they were not at their best dropping games to some surprisingly bad teams, but the feeling I get from Houston is that they will continue to get better throughout the year and end up being favorites for the World Series come October.
The biggest injury for the Astros during the 2021 season has no doubt been Justin Verlander who looks like he may be coming closer to a return to action, as it has been reported that he has been throwing from 90 ft and ”feels good”, so Houston’s ace might be back on the mound sooner rather then later.
One thing that is not in doubt, is that this team has the offense to win a title, as they rank first in runs scored, average and on base percentage so at this point it is tough not to say they are the best offense in the league.
Lance McCullers Jr. will get the call to the mound this Friday and he will be looking to build off of an excellent outing last time out against the Athletics where he only allowed 2 earned runs over 7 innings pitched.
Chicago White Sox
The White Sox were on a 5 game winning streak going into the break and they look like they also might be a big time player come October, as they have a pretty good overall roster themselves and will be another one of those teams who continue to get better as they get healthier throughout the back half of the season.
The White Sox do not only have an excellent offense, as they also have a top 10 pitching staff with this starting rotation being especially good with 37 quality starts on the year and the bullpen has not been all that bad either.
There is plenty of good news on the injury front for the White Sox as well with Eloy Jimenez back in AAA and closing in on a return with Luis Robert also starting to get back to baseball activities, so this White Sox has plenty of room to improve their already excellent stats.
Free Houston Astros vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
The Houston Astros are my favorites to win the World Series and I think they get the job done here on Friday, as we do not have to worry too much about the batting lineup and Lance McCullers will be on the hill, so they are very likely to have the advantage on the mound.
