This is the 1st installment of a 3-game American League Wild Card series. The Chicago White Sox finished 4th in the American League with a 35-25 record and are 2nd in the AL Central Division.

They started slow but exploded on both sides of the ball mid season but had their engines slowed nearing the end. Chicago had a strong offense during the regular season with 306 total runs made and had a team BAA of .261 which is 6th best in the league. They are also the 6th best pitching team with a team ERA of 3.81 in their 60 games played. Jose Abreu was their best offensive player in the regular season with 76 hits which is the 3rd most made in the league while topping the league with 60 RBIs and 19 homers which is 2nd best in the majors.

Chicago White Sox vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 9/29/2020

The Oakland Athletics are on their 3rd postseason in the last 3 years and are hoping to finally make it out of the Wild Card stage. The Athletics were constantly top spot in the American League and never made it out of the top 3 for most of the season. The team doesn’t exactly shine on the offensive side with a team BAA of .225 in 15th place while only making 274 runs this season. But you can never count them out in pitching as they are the 5th best in the league with a team ERA of 3.77. Mark Canha leads the team’s offense with 47 hits, 33 RBIs, and 5 homers while Matt Olson has 42 RBIs and 14 home runs. Oakland finished in 3rd place in the American League with a 36-24 record and is 1st in the AL West Division. Oakland is 5-5 in their last 10 games.  Jesus Luzardo will be on the mound for the A’s in the 1st game. He is now 3-2 with a 4.12 ERA and 59 strikeouts this season. 

Chicago White Sox vs Oakland Athletics. MLB’s pick for the 1st game is the Oakland Athletics -120. Chicago is a good team but it’s hard to side with them for now since they struggled a lot nearing the end of the regular season. There is no doubt in Chicago’s potential but the A’s have kept it steady recently. The offense is not that strong for Oakland but their bullpen will make up for that big time. The A’s are 8-0 in their last 8 home games versus the White Sox. Oakland will bash Chicago to a predicted score of 7-1.
