Houston Astros vs Chicago White Sox Predictions 5/13/2023


In this challenging weekend series against the Astros, the Chicago White Sox are hoping to turn things around.


Chicago entered this series with a record of 13–26 after suffering two straight defeats. Chicago was anticipated to challenge for the AL Central championship this season, but things were difficult thus far.


The White Sox will start right-hander Dylan Cease on Saturday night. In eight starts this year, Cease is 2-2 with a 3.59 ERA, including five strong starts.


Cease has a 10.9 K/9 ratio with 41 hits allowed over 40.1 innings. In four starts at home, Cease is just 1-1 with a 5.81 ERA.


In 20 innings, he gave up 21 hits and walked 16 hitters due to control issues. Cease’s hard-hit percentage increased to 53%, up from the lowest level in the league last year of 31.2%, but his strikeout rate decreased by 5% to 25%.


  • The Chi White Sox are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Chi White Sox’s last 6 matches against Houston.
  • The total went OVER in 13 of Chi White Sox’s last 19 matches at home.

Houston Astros vs Chicago White Sox. The MLB pick for this game is the Chicago White Sox. The White Sox were favored just a handful of times this season, given their present situation.


With Cease on the mound against Bielak, who is making just his third appearance of the year, the White Sox hold the advantage in this contest.


Both Cease and Bielak took a lot of hits this season, but Cease’s track record shows that he can make the necessary changes to recover.


Cease had trouble maintaining control and frequently puts himself in batters’ counts. As a result, he is getting more strong hits while striking out less frequently.


Against an Astros club that was not particularly patient this season, ranking only 23rd in walks per game, Cease could have an opportunity to make up for those mistakes.


The White Sox will have an opportunity to excel at the plate against Bielak, who did not demonstrate the ability to keep the ball out of play this season, striking out only 14% of batters while walking 12% of them on average.


The Chicago White Sox will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
