College World Series odds: Omaha day 5Posted by Jeff Sackmann
Another day, another "upset." I suppose it's a stretch to call it an upset when #1 seed Texas beats #5 Arizona State, but the Sun Devils looked quite a bit stronger on paper. Then again, the top teams in the tournament were never separated by much. It would've been equally surprising had everything gone exactly according to plan.
LSU now stands as the favorite, and today's Arkansas-Virginia game will determine who the Tigers will face for a place in the championship.
Full odds after the jump.
Team FinalTwo Champ Texas 66.5% 29.7% Arizona State 22.1% 13.6% North Carolina 11.4% 5.5% Arkansas 3.3% 0.9% Virginia 24.1% 14.6% Louisiana State 72.6% 35.7%
