The 2017 NCAA Division 1 baseball season began back February and will conclude on June 27 with the College World Series championship in Omaha, Nebraska. Last season Coastal Carolina defeated Arizona in the finals, giving the Chanticleers their first championship in school history. This was a major upset since Coastal Carolina’s odds of winning the championship were 55/1 before the season and 25/1 entering the tournament.
Coastal Carolina opened the season listed at 29/1 to repeat as champions — the 19th shortest odds in the country. Over the off-season, Coastal Carolina left the Big South Conference for the Sun Belt Conference. TCU and LSU (+700) were listed as the co-favorites to win the national championship.
The field in Omaha is set following the completion of the Super Regionals, and there are now eight teams left vying for the World Series. Louisville, who opened the season listed at +1600, is now the favorite at +275. LSU, who entered the season as the co-favorite, now have the third-shortest odds at +350.
