We’re one week away from Opening Day, and one of the best teams in the league will be right here in Chicago. With a lineup better than 95% of the league, the Chicago White Sox are going to be competing for a World Series.
White Sox Score 1+ Runs Opening Day (+100)
Yes, you’re reading that correctly. If the White Sox can score one run on Opening Day, you win and double your money. Last season, the Sox were sixth in the league in average runs per game. They scored just over five each time they took the field.
On April 1st, the Sox will begin the year out west against Joe Maddon’s L.A. Angels. No surprise, Maddon has named Dylan Bundy the starter for that game. Last season Bundy finished 9th in AL Cy Young Voting and had career bests in strikeouts per nine innings, walks per nine innings, and FIP at 2.95.
Even without Eloy Jimenez this season, the Sox lineup will be as close to bulletproof as it gets in baseball. The max bet here is $20 and the risk is worth every cent of it.
White Sox World Series Odds (+950)
From the reigning AL MVP Jose Abreu to the backend of the bullpen with Liam Hendricks and Garrett Crochet, the Sox are a good bet to win the World Series this season. That being said, the Dodgers are much better and the Padres are a tad better.
As far as the American League goes, the Sox have a great shot to make it into the fall classic. The Yankees should be their only true threat, at the moment.
Sox Favorites To Win AL Central (-115)
There are two teams capable of winning the AL Central this season: The Twins and the Sox.
Looking at it from a long view, the Sox have Luis Robert, a potential MVP candidate and the best player in the division. They have a better starting rotation, but as far as overall lineups and bullpens go the Twins are right there.
With the news of Eloy missing most of the season with a torn pectoral, that will certainly cost the Sox a few wins.
Lucas Giolito Top-3 In Cy Young Odds (+450)
Here is another reason the Sox are going to be box office this summer. Lucas Giolito is a full-blown star who has shown major improvements year-over-year. Only Gerrit Cole and Shane Biber, both former Cy Young winners, have higher odds to win the award this season. If the sox finish with a dominant regular-season record, which I believe they will, Giolito has a great opportunity to take home this prestigious award.
