Corvallis Regional Odds
For fans of college baseball, the sight of Vanderbilt and Oregon State on the same field during a Regional is a dream.
The Commodores are a shell of their former championship selves in previous campaigns, while the Beavers bring the best defense in the nation alongside a pitching staff that ranks top-10 in ERA and WHIP.
With New Mexico State up first, Oregon State is expected to sit one of best pitchers in Division I in Cooper Hjerpe.
Vanderbilt will begin its road to Omaha with San Diego, the West Coast Tournament winner that earned the automatic bid. Team strikeout leader Brycen Mautz is expected to get the call against the Commodores on Friday, but the current DraftKings line of +135 are the proper odds against Vanderbilt.
San Diego’s staff struggles outside of Mautz, which should play into a Vanderbilt vs. Oregon State finale in Corvallis.
The Beavers may be the one team that can contain electric Enrique Bradfield Jr. from stealing a ton of bags.
Oregon State not only mixes an elite pitching staff with defense, but the offense is one of the better ones in Division I in taking walks and advancing runners. The Beavers have one of the highest numbers in base runs, a stat that indicates the pure strength of a lineup without dependency on the order of hits.
Look for Oregon State to win this Regional by fielding the best starting pitcher, defense and pesky batters with low chase rates.
Pick: Oregon State -140
