After losing to the Oakland A’s in the 2020 American League Wild Card Series, the White Sox have high expectations to make a postseason push this year, and are equipped with plenty of talent -- like José Abreu -- to do so.Here’s a look at the rest of the favorites to take the AL title in 2021, provided by PointsBet:
