The Houston Astros excellent season continues as they travel to Chicago to play the White Sox. The Astros have their eyes on having the best record in the league and have certainly helped their cause as of late going 8-2 in their last 10 games. In an effort to close the gap on the Dodgers the Astros will hand the ball to Gerrit Cole (14-5, 2.87 ERA) who doesn’t need much said about him as he is a leading Cy Young contender.
Cole is crushing this year and is the second fastest to 200 strikeouts all time with his performances in 2019. It hasn’t been so rosy when you look at his stats against the White Sox, though. He has faced White Sox batters 66 times and has given up a .348 average and has conceded 9 extra base hits in that time.
Chicago White Sox
The Chicago White Sox will only be playing for pride here as they now sit 15.5 games back in the American League Wild Card race. Batting and pitching have both been poor for the White Sox this year, but the pitching really has been the biggest disappointment this year ranking way towards the bottom in most categories. In an effort to salvage some pride here the Sox will send out Ivan Nova (7-9, 4.80 ERA) who has had an up and down season.
It has, however, mostly been ups for Nova in his last 4 starts where his team are 4-0 over that stretch and has only given up a 0.64 ERA. With Cole on the other side of the equation, Nova will need to continue that outstanding form if the Sox have any chance of winning this Tuesday.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Under is 6-2 in Astros last 8 vs. American League Central.

Free Houston Astros vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction:
I think Nova can continue his great form here as the Astros are not the same team away from home. Obviously nothing needs to be said about Cole and he should be able to buck the trend and have a fine start against the White Sox in this spot.
