Context

The White Sox beat the Astros 8-5 on Tuesday. It was a surprising result for many bettors as 85% of moneyline tickets were on Houston. The Astros (71-41) have the best record in the American League, the ChiSox (42-68) have the worst.

Can the Southsiders win two games in a row or will the ‘Stros resume their winning ways?

Be contrarian and bet bad teams after a win. Many bettors think it is unlikely a bad team will win two games in a row and will bet the other side, which artificially inflates the line. Bet Chicago to win back-to-back games for the first time this month.
