As we told you in an earlier post, LSU is a favorite to win the Baton Rouge regional this weekend, as they open at -165, meaning one would have to bet $165 to win $100 for the Tigers to advance to the supers. But what do the sportsbooks think about them winning their seventh national baseball title?

Not long ago, LSU was ranked No. 1 in the nation – for quite some time – and was the favorite at about +400 to win it all. After a couple of dropped series near the end of the regular season and a 1-2 mark in the SEC Tournament, their odds have doubled.

Does that make them a good value? Let’s take a look at the top 10 favorites and Louisiana teams to win the College World Series next month in Omaha, as of Tuesday (May 30):

Wake Forest: +400

LSU: +800

Florida: +800

Arkansas: +1000

Clemson: +1400

Tennessee: +1800

Stanford: +1800

Virginia: +1800

Vanderbilt: +1800

South Carolina: +2500

Other Louisiana teams: UL, +20000; Nicholls State, +45000; Tulane, +50000
