Arkansas vs South Carolina Odds For 2012 College World Series

Filed under: Other Sports Odds |

The South Carolina Gamecocks had to wait an extra day due to weather in Omaha to play for their World Series lives. But the extra time didn’t phase the two-time defending champions who were coming off of their first postseason loss in three years.

The Gamecocks ousted the Kent State Golden Eagles on Thursday afternoon to keep their hopes alive for a remarkable third-straight national championship.

South Carolina will face Arkansas on Friday night in Omaha, with the Razorbacks looking to move on to the College World Series Final with a win. Arkansas defeated south Carolina 2-1 in their opener and will have to be beaten twice by the Gamecocks if South Carolina hopes to advance to another CWS final.

It was a very entertaining, albeit low scoring, affair between the Gamecocks and the Razorbacks the first time around.

So how do the odds stack up for this one?

College World Series Betting Odds available at 5Dimes Sportsbook have set the Gamecocks as favorites to win this game and force a win-or-go-home scenario for both over the weekend. On the moneyline, South Carolina is going off at -175 on the amount wagered, while Arkansas comes in on the other side of the line in the role of the underdog at +135 on the betting odds.

The over/under run total for the game is set at 7 runs.

This one is scheduled for the first pitch at 9pm ET, with coverage picked up by ESPN. It’s the only game on the slate in Omaha for Friday night.

It would be something if the Gamecocks do pull it off and somehow find their way back to the championship final with a couple more wins over Arkansas. Actually, it would be one of the most impressive feats we’ve seen in sports in quite some time.

Of course, that starts with a win on Friday night.
