Editor's Note: The start of Saturday's Florida vs. Texas A&M College World Series game has been delayed due to weather.


Omaha, Neb. — Two seasons ago, an SEC team was the selection committee's last pick to make the postseason. Entering the Hattiesburg Regional with a near .500 record, 3-seed Ole Miss moved on to win the national title.

Fast forward to the present, and the Florida Gators are well on their way to replicating the Rebels' 2022 success.

The Gators have been in reload mode after taking a championship series loss in Omaha a season ago.

The pitching staff entered the season with plenty of underclassmen bringing no experience. Because of the staff's struggles, Florida will never have a mathematical advantage in projections against any opponent.

However, the staff has generated top-35 ranks in xFIP and SIERA over the past 15 games. Another piece of good news comes from mid-March, when the Gators took a series from A&M in Gainesville.

While it would make sense for Texas A&M to send staff ace Ryan Prager to the mound, the Aggies are expected to start Justin Lamkin instead.

Lamkin started one game against Florida in March, allowing two earned runs on four hits and striking out five in 4 2/3 innings. He owns a 5.73 ERA on the season and hasn't made it through four innings in any of his last four starts.

Prager, meanwhile, pitched in Gainesville earlier this season against this lineup, allowing six earned over 2 1/3 innings pitched. Those are similar numbers to Prager's opening game in the College Station Super Regional, as Oregon posted six earned runs in the 1 2/3 innings against the Aggies' ace.

Throw in the recent injury situation that includes a season-ending injury to future first-round MLB Draft pick Braden Montgomery, and the Aggies may have troubles with the pitching staff and lineup.

Betting Picks & Prediction

This game projects to have the worst weather of all openers, with wind gusts reaching 30 mph blowing in from center field. As of writing, that wind direction flips the other way early Sunday morning, indicating that overs are the play when the losers' bracket begins.

Any total on this game will depend on the wind direction, so I'll enter plays in the Action App when things become clearer.

Pick: Florida ML +160 (Play to +120)
