Given that there is a wealth of information on the teams involved - college baseball world series odds are certainly not like taking a shot in the dark. Using a similar research path, one would follow when wagering on MLB World Series odds, bettors can review each teams regular season statistics to make informed decisions on the future odds to win the NCAA Baseball Championship.
Which college baseball team is the best
Heading into the 73rd annual tournament, a wide open field shows a number of solid squads vying to be the best college baseball team. With one title, during five appearances, UCLA is looking for their second National Championship after the Bruins won the tournament in 2013. UCLA is a top favorite after they posted a 47-8 record and won the Pac-12 Conference title this season.
College Baseball Betting Picks
Explained below, the Omaha Elite Eight are determined from 64 teams. Here we discuss a few teams we feel will survive Regional and Super Regional rounds and advance to the 2019 US College World Series. 12/06/19 UPDATE: UCLA, who were ranked #1, was upset by Michigan and Georgia Tech was tossed by Auburn.
Two of our four World Series squads to watch are still battling!
Vanderbilt Commodores Odds: 3.75
As the only NCAA Men's Championship, in Vanderbilt's 147 year school history, the Commodores won the 2014 US College Baseball World Series. Looking for more, Vandy (49-10) was one of the top teams in the Nation this season. Red-hot late in the season, the Commodores defeated Auburn, Mississippi State, LSU and Ole Miss by a 36-15 margin to claim the 2019 SEC Championship.
Arkansas Razorbacks Odds: 4.00
Skidding some recently, on a 2-5 slide, bettors should get a decent price on Arkansas heading into Fayetteville Regional action. Heartbreakingly close last year - Arkansas is looking to close the deal this season. The Razorbacks were up 1-0 on Oregon State in the best-of-three 2018 finals but the Beavers clawed back and won two straight games to claim their third NCAA World Series Pennant.
UCLA Bruins Odds: Eliminated
Heading to a number of NCAA baseball stat sites, Canadian 'Cappers can arm themselves with the knowledge needed to make college baseball betting picks. We mentioned UCLA as there is a lot to like about the Bruins. Entering the postseason riding a 10-game winning streak - UCLA is a stacked squad that posted a .294 team batting average and scored 363 runs over 55 games.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Odds: Eliminated
Closing out our early 'teams to watch' College World Series free picks segment, we are looking at Georgia Tech as dog with a shot in the Atlanta Region. The Yellow Jackets closed the season on an 11-2 run before losing to North Carolina in the ACC Championship. A rematch between the Tar Heels and Yellow Jackets in the Atlanta Super Regional best-of-three final would not surprise us.

How the College World Series Works
How College Baseball Playoffs Work
Winning the US College World series is no small feat. Over three and a half months of US College Baseball betting action, from mid-February to late May, teams play up to a maximum of 56 contests. Much like college football and college basketball, the bulk of those matches are conference games. After the regular season - top teams battle in five-round Conference Championships.
Then, the NCAA Baseball Selection Committee draws up a 64-team double elimination tournament. Different from March Madness brackets; contenders are divided into eight "Super Regions" with eight teams in each. Super Regions are further divided into four-team Regional divisions. The two teams that advance to the Super Regional Finals compete in a best-of-three series.
Super Regional winners make up the Elite Eight teams that are tagged with World Series NCAA Baseball betting odds. Usually running eight straight days, a double-elimination tournament reduces the field to the final two teams who play a best-of-three series to decide the Champion. In the 2018 tournament, Oregon State played 12 games (10-2) to win the National Championship
Can college baseball use wooden bats
First played way back in 1859, when Williams College faced Amherst College, wood bats were used exclusively in college baseball for over a century. Still a point of contention today, with vocal proponents on both sides, an NCAA rule change made high-powered aluminum and composite bats legal in 1975.
Why college baseball use aluminium bats
First, their lighter weight increases swing speed by an estimated 5 to 10 miles per hour. Composite bats also quickly compress and release on contact with the hardball and that spring like motion causes the ball to come of the bat faster and fly further. A larger "sweet spot" on aluminium bats is a top reason as well.
Are college baseball in 9 innings
NCAA Baseball governing body wants teams to play 9 inning games as often as possible. All Regional playoff and College World Series matches go at least 9 innings. In the regular season, the third match of a weekend conference series, plus one or both games of a doubleheader, are often seven inning contests.
Can College baseball players dip
Wildly popular, because it helped keep players mouths moist, which they used to keep gloves subtle on old dusty diamonds, chewing tobacco was common place a century ago. Knowing its potential to cause cancer, and its addictive nature, college baseball players are not allowed to dip while with the team.
What College Baseball Team Has The Most Championships
Head and shoulders above all, when it comes to National Championship title wins during the first 72 US College World Series, the University of Southern California stands alone. Rod Dedeaux spent 45 years as the USC bench boss, from 1942 to 1986, and posted numbers that will never be duplicated.
Rod Dedeaux won 11 National Championships, had a run of 37 years without a losing season and finished with a 1332-571-11 overall record.
However, the Trojans last title (12th) is a distant memory as it was two decades ago in 1998. Since then, nine teams have celebrated their first World Series title including five in the past six years. That brings the number of schools with an NCAA Baseball National Championship to 30 over 72 tournaments.
Texas and LSU are next behind Southern California as the Longhorns and Tigers both have six titles. Arizona with five championships, plus Miami (FLA) Cal State Fullerton and Arizona with four victories are next. Texas leads all schools with 36 appearances including the Longhorns early exit in round two last season.
Who Won College Baseball World Series in 2018
Underdogs, with a lot of heart, Oregon State claimed their third NCAA Baseball National Championship as the Beavers won the College Baseball World Series in 2018. The Beavers lost their first game in the tournament, and then the first game in the Finals, but bounced back to claim the title.
Canuck bettors should note that NCAA baseball betting odds supporting back-to-back title wins has not paid off since the South Carolina Gamecocks turned the double in 2010 and 2011. Oregon State has a chance to earn their second back-to-back title as the Beavers were National Camps in 2006 and 2007.
