Chicago at Houston
Sunday 05/31 02:10 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Houston -137 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.59) RESULT: LOSS
Houston is no fluke, 10th in baseball in runs scored and tops in homers. The Astros are on a 27-13 run, 5-1 when Roberto Hernandez takes the mound. Houston has won 11 of 17 and plays its third straight home contest, part of a nice 7-game homestand. Chicago is in town with a terrible offense, 29th in baseball in runs scored (only the Phillies are worse). The White Sox are 35-85 on the road against a team with a winning home record. The White Sox trot out lefty John Danks (2-4, 5.69 ERA), who has been brutal on the road at 1-3 with a 6.93 ERA. Danks was roughed up by the Blue Jays in five innings of work Tuesday, allowing six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five. The White Sox are 6-13 in Danks' last 19 starts, 4-12 when he's an underdog. He's also 0-4 against Houston. Play the Astros.
