Series Betting Analysis
Easily the most lopsided “Super” on the board, the question remains whether or not South Florida can bottle up its winning ways and continue in Austin.
Heading into the regionals, the Bulls ranked outside the top 100 in home runs per game, slugging and fielding percentage.
Winners of nine of its last 11, South Florida beat a Florida team that made the semifinals of the SEC Tournament before routing Miami.
Unlike South Florida, there are not many categories in which the Longhorns fall out of the top 100. Texas is top-25 in fielding percentage, on-base percentage and stolen bases.
Probable Starting Pitchers & Projected Odds
Why is Texas fetching numbers so high in the regional market? Starting pitchers Tristan Stevens and Ty Madden have been nothing but electric. This is the top pitching staff in the nation, ranking first in earned run average.
The series price should mathematically fetch -900, but a better bet may be a future.
The Longhorns would enter Omaha on the other side of the bracket of Arkansas and Vanderbilt, giving their odds value considering the small hurdle of South Florida.
Pick: Texas -2000 | Championship Future +800
