NCAA Baseball Odds - Arkansas vs. Oregon State CWS Game 3 Preview

CWS Arkansas vs Oregon Beavers Odds

The Oregon State Beavers were one strike away from finishing as the college baseball national runners-up, but they fought back for a wild win over the Arkansas Razorbacks in Game 2 of the national championship series. Now the teams will face off in a winner-take-all Game 3 with the title on the line.

Oregon State has been living on the edge throughout the College World Series but will be favored to claim the championship with a win in the deciding game. Arkansas was on the precipice of celebrating the title and it is fair to wonder how well the team will be able to bounce back.

The Beavers’ bats got hot at the right time in Game 2 and the team is hoping to carry that over in the final game of the college baseball season. The Razorbacks have controlled almost the entire national championship series and hope that results in the title in College World Series betting.

Last Time Out

Arkansas held a 3-2 lead in the top of the ninth inning and were just one out away from the national title, but Oregon State wouldn’t let that happen. Cadyn Grenier singled home pinch-runner Zach Clayton to tie the contest and Trevor Larnach gave Oregon State the 5-3 win by blasting a two-run homer.

The Beavers looked to be done but the exhilarating victory keeps them on track to win the title. The Razorbacks were previously 42-0 when entering the ninth inning with a lead but closer Matt Cronin allowed three runs in the final stanza.

Luke Bonfield had a big game for the Razorbacks, finishing 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Arkansas was hoping its early offense would be enough but the inability to tack on runs hurt the team when the Beavers rallied.

Free College World Series ATS Picks

Arkansas had a great shot to wrap up the championship but couldn’t get the final out in the top of the ninth inning. The Razorbacks are not going to be able to bounce back from that.

Oregon State is the better team and is going to ride this wave of momentum into a big-time performance in Game 3. Both teams are running on fumes after a long College World Series but the Beavers will be able to put together a fine showing.

There won’t be as much drama in this one as the Beavers will take control early and the bullpen will hold up. Oregon State seemed destined to finish in second place in the college baseball tournament but the favorites from the start of the College World Series will in fact claim the national title in NCAA baseball betting. The “under” is the pick as both sides will be using every available arm to lock this one down.
