The college baseball postseason is heating up, and "Bayou Bets," the twice-weekly sports betting show on Bet.NOLA.com, was all over the LSU vs. Kentucky super regional on Thursday's show.
LSU is a -250 favorite in its super regional series against the Wildcats this weekend, making the Tigers the biggest favorite of any team to reach Omaha for the College World Series.
There are a couple of caveats to that, one being that No. 1 Wake Forest's series against Alabama isn't listed at most major sportsbooks. But hosts Zach Ewing and Jim Derry still were optimistic about LSU's chances.
Also covered were the NBA Finals, where the Denver Nuggets are an overwhelming favorite; the Saints' latest offseason practices and Zach's dream baseball trip with his father and two sons.
The show is sponsored by Caesars Sportsbook, official odds partner of The Advocate and Times-Picayune, and airs live at 4 p.m. on Monday and Thursday. Both live coverage and on-demand viewing are available on the Bayou Bets YouTube channel.
