2014 College World Series Betting Lines + Tournament Preview

Filed under: MLB Betting Odds |

2014 College World SeriesThe eight teams making their way to Omaha for the 2014 College World Series are set, and it’s unlikely that you would have been able to predict how it would turn out.

For starters, there are just two national seeds left, including only one of the top-five overall. The No.3 Virginia Cavaliers and the No.7 TCU Horned Frogs are the only nationally seeded teams to survive Regionals and Super Regionals to advance.

That means that top-seeded Oregon State, No.2 seed Florida, No.4 seed Indiana, No.5 seed Florida State and more are out.

The teams that reach Omaha outside of Virginia and TCU are Vanderbilt, Texas, Mississippi, UC Irvine, Louisville, and Texas Tech.

Oddsmakers at Bovada Sportsbook have already formulated betting lines to win the 2014 College World Series. As expected, a seeded team is on top. Virginia is set at 11/4, which is slightly under a 3 to 1 payout. TCU is not the next team on the list. In fact, the Horned Frogs are down in the bottom half of the eight. Vanderbilt (3/1), and Texas (4/1) are the closest contenders to the Cavaliers according to Bovada.

Virginia spent much of the college baseball season at the top of the rankings, but did not win the ACC nor the conference tournament. The Cavaliers were still rewarded with the third-overall seed behind Oregon State and Florida.

Virginia will face Ole Miss in their opening College World Series matchup. Also in the bracket is TCU and Texas Tech.

In the other bracket, UC Irvine will take on Texas, while Louisville will battle Vanderbilt.

The College World Series is a double-elimination format, with winners and losers brackets formed following the first series of outcomes.

Individual game betting lines for the College World Series will also be available at Bovada throughout each round.

Of the eight teams remaining, Texas by far has the most experienced program, with a record of 82-57 in CWS games in 34 appearance. The next closest number of victories is three, held by Ole Miss, TCU and Virginia. Texas Tech is making its first-ever appearance in Omaha. Louisville has the second-most CWS appearances, with this marking the school’s fifth.
