EARLY TUES. 1ST 5 INNING BLUE CHIP TOTAL!
(MLB) Houston vs. Chi White Sox, 10/12/2021 2:07 PM, Score: 10 - 1
Total: 8.50 | -102.00 Under
Result: Loss
I'm playing on Chicago/Houston UNDER for the first 5 innings. The first three games all finished above the total, for the first five innings. (In both Game 1 and Game 2, it took runs in the 5th inning to make it go over.) I expect a lower-scoring start this afternoon though. Rodon has a 2.08 ERA and 0.769 WHIP his last three starts. He hasn't been taken deep in over a month. Rodon, on the other hand, was 5-2 with a 3.18 ERA during the day, opposing hitters batting just .188. While he's battled injuries, when healthy, Rodon is dominant. He had this to say: "The last few days, it seemed like I've turned a corner. Ball is coming out good. I feel good. I feel ready." Yesterday's ppd game allows the Astros to come back with McCullers Jr. instead of Urquidy. That's a big upgrade. You may recall that he threw 6 2/3 shutout innings in Game 1. He allowed just one hit through the first six innings. Expect a low-scoring start.
