And then there were two. 

The College World Series is set with the LSU Tigers taking on Florida Gators for the right to claim the top prize in NCAA Baseball. Game 1 goes Saturday June 24 at 7pm ET with Game 2 slated for Sunday June 25 at 3pm ET. 

Let's look at the current 2023 College World Series odds.

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.

Understanding College World Series futures odds

College World Series futures odds will usually look like this:

  • Vanderbilt +235

This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to profit $235 if the Commodores win the CWS. As the tournament progresses and one team stands out, you might see that a team is has a minus sign (-) ahead of its odds. 

  • Texas -120

This means that you would need to bet $120 to win $100 on a Longhorns championship.
