LSU moving on to super regionals on Saturday

LSU third baseman Tommy White (47), shortstop Jordan Thompson (4), second baseman Ben Nippolt (5), center fielder Dylan Crews (3) and right fielder Paxton Kling celebrate the win over Oregon State in the Baton Rouge regional on Monday, June 5, 2023, at Alex Box Stadium. The victory advanced the Tigers to the super regional against Kentucky, which begins Saturday in Baton Rouge.

Last week, if you plopped down a $165 bet on LSU to win the Baton Rouge regional, you are $100 richer today. And, if you bet the Tigers to win the College World Series at +800, you are one big step closer, but still have a long way to go.

Now, heading into this weekend’s super regionals, top overall seed Wake Forest remains the favorite at +250 at Caesars Sportsbook, and No. 2 Florida and No. 5 LSU aren’t far behind at +500.

Do the two latter teams still represent good value? Both have to play conference opponents who also are seeded nationally.

Let’s take a look at the super regional schedule and each team’s odds to win the College World Series, as posted by Caesars Sportsbook, which is the official odds partner of Bet.NOLA.com. (Note: Alabama has not been listed in any odds or game lines since their earlier alleged scandal this season.)
