Chicago Cubs vs Houston Astros. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. Over the course of the weekend, the Twins destroyed the Cubs, triumphing by a combined score of 27-4 on Saturday and Sunday.


The reigning champion Astros, who just won a series against the Los Angeles Angels and Chicago White Sox, will present difficulties for Chicago once more on the road.


This season, Valdez was difficult to score against, especially in his most recent games. With another strong performance against the Cubs, he will build on the momentum he created in those two starts.


Taillon, his opponent, is currently getting back into form after suffering a groin injury. If he is off, there will be too many innings for the already overworked Chicago bullpen to handle.


The Astros are 24-11 in their previous 35 interleague home games against teams with a losing record and 42-19 in their last 61 games after a road trip of seven or more days.


They’ll be easy pickings for a Cubs squad that is 4-11 in their past 15 interleague road games when playing a team with a winning record and 1-5 in their previous six road matches.


Tomorrow, place a bet on the Astros to win by two runs or more. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 6-4.
