Michigan took Game 1 of the College World Series, handing Vanderbilt just its third loss since April 15. But the Commodores fired back on Tuesday night, thanks to a dominant performance from ace Kumar Rocker.
That brings us to a winner-take-all Wednesday showdown (7 p.m. ET, ESPN), with Vanderbilt a heavy -200 favorite to take home its second CWS title.
Mason Hickman is projected to start for Vandy; he has allowed just eight earned runs in his past six starts, spanning 33.2 innings. He’ll face off against Michigan’s Karl Kauffman, who been a workhorse of late for the Wolverines, pitching 38 of a possible 45 innings in his past five starts.
Let’s dig into my projected lines for Game 3 and the best betting values on the board.
