The Houston Astros have won 19 of their last 27 home meetings against the Chicago White Sox, and look for another home series win against them in tonight's rubber match of the three-game series.

Betting Impact:

The Astros are -182 moneyline favorites, per BettingPros consensus odds. Today’s pitching matchup is between Michael Kopech (2-2, 1.92) and Cristian Javier (3-3, 3.20). After appearing in 44 games last year but making just four starts, Michael Kopech is excelling in his first full season as a starting pitcher. Kopech left his previous start against Texas last Sunday after just 0.2 innings with discomfort in his right knee. However, the injury was not considered serious, and Kopech is making his 12th start of the season just one week later. Cristian Javier is on pace for a career-low in ERA in his third season. Javier does not yet have enough innings to qualify, but if he did, his 11.29 K/9 rate would rank fifth-best in the league. The Astros are just 5-7 in Javier's starts, making him the only starting pitcher that has not guided the team to a winning record in his starts.
