Cleveland Guardians vs Houston Astros 5/24/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Cleveland Guardians will go against the Houston Astros in MLB action in Minute Maid Park, TX, on Tuesday, May 24, 2022, at 8:10 PM ET. Cleveland’s biggest problem this season was starting pitching, but Triston McKenzie put up a fantastic effort to lead the team to a win over Houston on Monday.

 

Amed Rosario led off the third inning with an RBI fielder’s choice, then Jose Ramirez took over the rest of the night with a two-run homer and two RBI groundouts.

 

McKenzie went seven innings, surrendering just one run on 3 hits and one walk while striking out 3 batters. Myles Straw reached base twice and scored both times, while Ramirez went 2-5 with a double, a home run, and four RBI.

 

With the shock, Cleveland is now ahead on the money line for the year, but the run line is even at 19-19. Cleveland’s offense was a question mark before the season, but the lineup ranks seventh in scoring with 4.62 runs per game and a.702 on-base percentage. Cleveland’s pitching fell far short of expectations, with a 3.98 ERA.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Cleveland’s last 7 matches.
  • The Cleveland Guardians are 3-6 SU in their last 9 matches.
  • Cleveland is 2-7 SU in their last 9 matches against Houston.

Cleveland Guardians vs Houston Astros Predictions 5/24/2022

 

Houston‘s pitching was outstanding all year, but it couldn’t hold up in the opener against Cleveland on Monday night. The offense struggled as well, with Alex Bregman’s single drive in the seventh inning serving as the only bright spot in an otherwise dreadful showing.

 

Luis Garcia came up short after pitching five innings and surrendering four runs (two earned) on 5 hits and 2 walks while striking out four batters. Jose Altuve added a double, but the Astros were unable to score because they were 0-6 with runners in scoring position.

 

With their excellent start, the Astros are still up a healthy amount on the money line while going 22-21 on the run line. The Astros are 11-32 against the over, with only one of their previous nine matches going over the betting total.

 

Houston is sixth in the Majors with a.724 OPS, despite their below-average scoring (4.26 runs per game). The Astros pitching staff is excellent, with a 2.84 collective ERA that leads the AL, and a 2.66 bullpen ERA that leads MLB.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Houston’s last 6 matches.
  • The Houston Astros are 15-5 SU in their last 20 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Houston’s last 6 matches against Cleveland.

Cleveland Guardians vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. While the Astros’ first game didn’t go well, we shouldn’t expect many more like it during the year, given this is a full squad that was performing well in every aspect.

 

Valdez is enjoying another quietly fantastic season, and with Plesac struggling, he should have plenty of run support on Tuesday. Plesac did not do the same since the start of 2021, including being labeled with a 120 ERA/133 FIP so far this season.

 

This will be a particularly difficult task for him, given Houston boasts the fourth-best wRC+ in baseball, meaning that its scoring numbers should continue to rise significantly. Valdez understands how to minimize serious damage, as seen by his 65.7 percent groundball rate, which led to a 75 ERA/81 FIP this season.

 

Given Houston’s significant beginning pitching edge on Tuesday, this is a terrific location to bet on the Astros rebounding back in a big manner. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 4-2.
