Chicago White Sox @ Houston Astros Game 1 Tips 


The regular season is over and now it’s time for the postseason which sees the Chicago White Sox travel to Minute Maid Park where they take on the Houston Astros in the American League Division Series. 

The White Sox had a dominant season winning 93 games which saw them finish in top spot of the American League Central Division. 

The Astros also had a very dominant season, winning 95 regular season games which saw them crown first place in the AL West Division, to set up an exciting ALDS series. 

  • The Chicago White Sox finished the regular season ranked fifth in earned run average (ERA) with 3.73
  • The Chicago White Sox finished the regular season with the third most strikeouts in the MLB with 1,588
  • White Sox Pitcher Liam Hendriks finished the regular season with the second most pitching saves in the MLB with 38

Head-to-Head 


These two teams only managed two series against each other this year with both teams winning one each. 

In terms of games played, they have played seven matches this year, with the Houston Astros winning five of them, compared to two from the White Sox. 

However, the White Sox have beaten the Astros in the last two games. 

Chicago White Sox Form 


The White Sox finished the season strong as they won their last three series, which also included a one off game against the Detroit Tigers. 

The White Sox defeated Cleveland Indians, winning the five game series 3-2 and then defeated the Tigers in a one off game.

They then  got the better of the Cincinnati Reds 2-0 in a two game series and ended the season with a win over the Tigers 2-1 in a three game series.

In their past 10 matches the White Sox have won seven games and have only dropped three games. 

Houston Astros Form 


Houston claimed two series wins from three with the one defeat coming in a 3-0 clean sweep loss to the Oakland Athletics.

They responded by winning their next two against the Tampa Bay Rays, winning the three game series 2-1, and got revenge with a 2-1 win against the Athletics to end the regular season. 

In their last 10 matches they only managed four wins and suffered six defeats.
