Chicago White Sox vs Oakland Athletics. MLB’s pick to win the final game is the Oakland Athletics -125. Chicago really did well during the regular season making big offensive plays down the stretch but when the postseason was nearing they struggled on where things counted the most. Oakland is the 3rd best AL team and remained consistent throughout the season which will give them the edge to close out the series in the next game. Chicago is struggling in pitching as of late which will be difficult if they can’t get in check in the next game. Oakland will beat the White Sox to a predicted score of 5-3.
