The Chicago White Sox ran away with the AL Central division in 2021 and cruised into the playoffs with an impressive 93-69 record. Unfortunately, the team ran into the Houston Astros for an early postseason departure, but shortstop Tim Anderson and his crew will look take another step forward in 2022.

FanDuel Sportsbook recently released projected win totals for each MLB franchise. White Sox fans are simply going to love the outlook, which is set at 92.5 wins. Chicago also holds +950 odds to win the World Series.

Chicago White Sox Projected Win Total

There's every expectation that Chicago has the tools to be a serious threat at the World Series title in 2022. The franchise pieced together 93 wins in a season that saw separate injuries to Eloy Jimenez, Luis Robert, and Yasmani Grandal.

The weak AL Central division also must be factored into Chicago's win total. The White Sox posted a 44-32 against division rivals in 2021 and should do more of the same this year.

The Minnesota Twins did add Carlos Correa in free agency, but failed to make other offseason splashes. The Detroit Tigers and Kansas City Royals may take a step forward, but it's hard to rely on young talent, and the Cleveland Guardians are more interested in shedding payroll.

With one of the scariest lineups in baseball, Chicago will attempt to recreate their 4.9 runs scored per game from last year. This offense ranked seventh in the MLB and healthy campaigns from Robert and Jimenez primes the White Sox' starting nine to be more lethal in 2022.

Chicago's 92.5 win total ranks second in all of baseball (along with the Houston Astros and Toronto Blue Jays), and well ahead of the next AL Central team on the list, the Twins at 81.5 wins.
