|North Carolina State||+7500|
|Texas Rio Grande Valley||+50000|
The regular season is wrapping up and schools will begin their conference tournaments this week as they eye the coveted College Baseball World Series.
Sportsbooks have posted odds on who will take home the National Championship this season in Omaha.
The No. 1 ranked Tennessee Volunteers are the heavy favorite to win it all at +350 on DraftKings. The Vols are 49-7 on the season and went 25-5 in the regular season.
Oregon State is the next closest team at +900 and the only other school with odds of 10-1 or better.
There is a large grouping between 13-1 and 20-1 on DraftKings that includes Stanford, Oklahoma State, Arkansas, Texas, LSU and Virginia.
Next week will be conference championship week, with the NCAA bracket to be announced on May 31. The Regionals will run from June 3 to June 6 and the Super Regionals will run from June 10 to June 13. The first day of the CWS is on June 17, with the championship starting on June 25.
1. Tennessee +350
The Vols have been one of the best teams in college baseball for most of the season. They went 24-2 in non-conference play and followed that up with a 25-5 record in the SEC. It is a mere formality that they will lock in the No. 1 overall seed in the tournament.
2. Oregon State +900
The Beavers are 41-13 overall and went 20-10 in the Pac-12. They are trending in the wrong direction, however, as they’ve lost back-to-back series to Arizona and UCLA. They will need to garner some momentum in the inaugural Pac-12 Tournament and show they’re a serious contender for the CWS.
3. Stanford +1300
Despite Oregon State having better odds to win the National Championship, Stanford is actually the team that clinched the regular-season Pac-12 title this past week. The Cardinal hold a 37-14 record and went 18-9 in the Pac-12.
4. Oklahoma State +1600
Oklahoma State is a curious case. It’s ranked No. 9 in the NCAA RPI and No. 13 at Baseball America, but has the fourth-highest odds at DraftKings to win it all. The Cowboys hold a 36-18 record and went 15-9 in the Big 12. A good conference tournament could lock them up the opportunity to host the regionals.
5. Arkansas +1800
Arkansas is another team entering the postseason trending in the wrong direction. The Razorbacks have dropped back-to-back series and enter the SEC Tournament stumbling. They’ll have to garner some momentum this week if they want to host the regionals.
