It could be a numbers things its very hard to pin-point a wobble in a car, but you can have the struts looked at, Wheels may need to be balanced (high Speed) Steering linage may be worn. Wheel alignment...

I just got my tires rotated and balanced so maybe ill check the other things you mentioned. Thanks.

would it be the high speed linage since it only happens as I accelerate and not at higher speeds?

How long ago tires were rotated ? May want to check that wheel lugs are tight.

Wheel lugs loose, a bent or warped wheel, bent steel belt in a tire, a defective tire or 2, an upper or lower ball joint, the list of possible causes could continue to grow. You had them rotated and balanced, but did you have the alignment checked?

tires

motor, trans mounts

check engine and trans mounts,bad mounts will make it wobble during acceration,
