Chi. White Sox 1 @ Houston 6 | 10/07 | 8:07 PM UTC

Houston -144

WIN

ANALYSIS: The White Sox might -- might -- be without slugger and reigning AL MVP Jose Abreu in Game 1 as he was held out Sunday due to a non-COVID illness -- he didn't even travel with the team originally to Houston but was to fly there Wednesday night. A decision on his status will be made Thursday morning. His absence would be massive. The possibility of no Abreu, plus how Sox starter Lance Lynn historically has struggled in Houston (4.92 ERA) and Astros starter Lance McCullers' domination this year and, well, the home team takes Game 1.
