College World Series odds through day 2

We’re down to 48 teams. In 24 hours, we’ll be down to no more than 32. Highlights from yesterday’s action include a Virginia win over UC Irvine, a Kansas State win over Rice, and a second win from at-large whipping boy Oklahoma State.

The real story, however, was a 25-inning (yes, you read that right) game between Texas and Boston College. You’d think we’d be talking about BC’s Mike Belfiore, who pitched 9.2 innings of scoreless relief, but Texas’s Austin Wood blanked the Eagles for thirteen innings. Thirteen.

My simulator doesn’t account for the suffering (both emotional and bullpen-related) that BC must be going through, but with that limitation, follow the jump for updated College World Series odds. Naturally, the 2-0 teams are heavily favored to win their regionals. In the double-elimination format, they need only one more win, while whoever comes out of the loser’s bracket will need to beat them twice.
