The Chicago White Sox will take on the Oakland A's at Ring Central Coliseum on Tuesday afternoon in the AL Wild Card round in game 1. Lucas Giolito (4-3 ERA: 3.48) will get the start for the White Sox and Jesus Luzardo (3-2 ERA: 3.81) will go for Oakland. Luzardo has been somewhat unpredictable, pitching a 6 inning shutout against the Giants in the last start on 9/19 and on 9/14/20 only getting through 4.2 giving up 4 runs to Seattle. Meanwhile, Giolito has been under a 1.5 WHIP in all 3 of the previous starts, but has given up almost 3 earned runs per game in that time span. 7.5 total seems low, take the over on Tuesday afternoon.
