College World Series odds: Omaha day 3Posted by Jeff Sackmann
Day two brought fewer surprises, but both favorites—Texas and Arizona State—were pushed to the brink by their opponents. Accordingly, Arizona State (already the favorite before yesterday's action) holds an even more commanding position, while Sunday's losers—Southern Miss and North Carolina—have a long road out of tomorrow's loser's game. The wins by the favorites also hurt LSU's chances a little bit: Now that the Tigers are that much more likely to face Texas and Arizona State in the finals, their path is more challenging as well.
Full odds after the jump.
Team FinalTwo Champ Texas 30.8% 15.2% Southern Mississippi 1.1% 0.4% Arizona State 61.7% 40.4% North Carolina 6.3% 3.4% Cal State Fullerton 11.7% 6.0% Arkansas 22.0% 5.2% Virginia 13.8% 7.5% Louisiana State 52.6% 22.0%
