Houston at Chicago

1.5 units on Chicago -135 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 2.61) RESULT: WIN
The Houston Astros, after enduring a lot of painful years, have seen some of their draft picks come of age, and this young team is 10 games over .500. They are being challenged mentally as they come into this game on a four game losing streak. Chicago is not a good team, but every fifth day they become a powerhouse, and that is when Chris Sale takes the mound. The Sox own a 30-14 record when Sale takes the mound in the role of a home favorite. Opponents have been limited to 3.2 runs a game in this spot. Sale has dominated Houston to the tune of an 0.38 ERA, with 33 strikeouts in 24 innings over three starts. The Sox are also 25-9 behind Sale vs. an oppponent that allowed 5+ runs in their last game. Houston is an ugly 40-99 on the road vs. a team with a winning home record. Make the play on Chicago.
