College World Series favorites
Florida Gators (-120)
The Florida Gators finished the regular season with 42 wins en route to an SEC Championship. That mark was the second-most wins the Gators have put up in their history and it was buoyed by the third-most home runs in the nation with 119.
The No. 2 Gators ride to Omaha has been nothing short of drama-filled with three one-run ball games. They have turned to their studs time and time again with the likes of Wyatt Langford (third-ranked MLB prospect for 2023), and Jac Caglianone leading the way offensively. The latter also pitched 4 1/3 inning in their last game vs. TCU.
If the Gators can continue to hit the long ball and get big time pitching, they'll be tough to beat this weekend.
LSU Tigers (+100)
The LSU Tigers needed a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th vs. Wake Forest to punch their ticket to Omaha but if you think they are here by fluke, think again.
The Tigers boast two studs who are widely regarded as the top two 2023 MLB draft prospects: right-hander Paul Skenes and outfielder Dylan Crews. Skenes has posted an astronomical 16.6 K/9 over 15 starts in 2023, while Crews came into the College World Series with a 1.277 OPS and .420 batting average with 15 home runs.
If momentum was a measurable it would be in the Tigers' corner heading into the weekend.
