White Sox Fans Are Going to Love Their Projected 2021 Win Total
By Larry Rupp
The 2020 season for the Chicago White Sox was one for the ages as they made the MLB postseason for the first time since 2008 and proved they have a young scary team. They head into the 2021 season with hopes of going even further this time around and fans should be excited about the team's projected win total.
The White Sox are projected to be one of the top teams in the MLB this season as they have the sixth-highest projected win total set at 90.5, according to MLB odds posted on FanDuel Sportsbook.
White Sox Projected Win Total
Reigning American League MVP Jose Abreu bolsters a strong offensive lineup for the White Sox after leading the league in RBI in each of the last two seasons. He is surrounded by shortstop Tim Anderson (league-leading 45 runs scored in 2020) and young phenom Eloy Jimenez (45 home runs in 2019-2020).
When it comes to the pitching side of the game, the White Sox are looking to thrive off of a balanced rotation highlighted by young star Lucas Giolito. Giolito led the team with 97 strikeouts in 72.1 innings pitched last season. Plus, this team is built on a roster that lost close to no major contributors from the 2020 team.
The only teams with higher projected win totals than the White Sox are the Los Angeles Dodgers (103.5), New York Yankees (95.5), San Diego Padres (94.5), Atlanta Braves (91.5) and New York Mets (91). The White Sox are capable of putting together a great season and fans should prepare for what is going to be an exciting season.
