I get why Chicago is favored as they have a solid lineup from top to bottom and Lucas Giolito’s shown flashes of brilliance at times this season. However, while I’ve had a hard time trusting Jesus Luzardo, the fact is that he’s had playoff experience before, something we can’t say for Giolito and the White Sox enter the postseason in a bit of a slump, losing 9 of their last 12 games and you have to wonder if getting edged out for the division title at the end of the regular season did something mentally to the club heading into the playoffs. The A’s are deep, have a solid bullpen and are no strangers to playoff baseball, even without fans in the stands. I think the wrong team’s favored in game one, so give me Oakland as my premium pick for this game.
