College Baseball Betting Online

Just like the other major college sports, there is a carrot at the end of the stick for the Division I baseball teams. The national champion is crowned at the end-of-season eight-team College World Series, which takes place in June at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, Neb. The baseball schedule is grueling, typically consisting of near 50 games in a season, which starts at the end of February and runs through May.

A total of 64 teams qualify for the postseason tournament, including conference champions and at-large teams. The field is whittled down to eight teams through Regionals and Super Regionals that take place in the weekends preceding the CWS. The 2019 NCAA Baseball Tournament will be run from May 31 through the end of the College World Series with the latest date of June 26. All of the action from the first pitch of the tournament through the last of the College World Series can be found on the ESPN family of networks.

NCAA Baseball Tournament Format

Just like the NCAA basketball tournament, there are automatic qualifiers for all conference tournament champions. But unlike the NCAA Tournament, a college baseball team's season ends after two losses, not just one. On the eve of the selection of the brackets for the NCAA Baseball Tournament, the Selection Committee releases the top 16 seeds. Those 16 teams host four-team Regionals. The teams are seeded 1 through 4 in each mini-bracket, with No. 1 playing No. 4 in one game and No. 2 playing No. 3 in the other. The two winners face off in the second round of games, while the two losers meet in an elimination game on the same day.

From there, the two teams with one-loss meet in a second elimination game, while the 2-0 team can rest up a day. Whichever team emerges from the second one-loss game will have to win two games against the unbeaten club to advance. From there, the 16 remaining teams face off in Super Regionals. The teams are bracketed together just like in basketball, so you could easily see a pair of 4-seeds facing off for the right to go to the College World Series. The Super Regionals are best-of-three series, and the first to two wins advances to Omaha for the College World Series. In the College World Series, teams are split into two brackets of four, and the whole process begins again. The survivors of the two brackets play against each other in a best-of-three series to determine the National Champion.

Oregon State became the ninth school to win at least three national championships by downing Arkansas in three games in the 2018 CWS. The Beavers rallied from the losers bracket to advance to the final, where they again overcame a loss to win the next two games. The Beavers won back-to-back titles in 2006 and 2007.

Back in the 1960s and 1970s, USC had the dominant program. There were fewer teams at that point, thus it shouldn't be surprising that a national powerhouse was able to stay on top for a long period of time. The Trojans won nine titles during those two decades, including a run of five straight from 1970-1974. USC’s 12 NCAA Tournament championships are double that of any other school.

LSU has been the team of the 1990s and early-2000s. The Tigers didn't even reach the College World Series for the first time until 1986. The Tigers won four titles in the 1990s and their other two in the 2000s. Texas is the other team with six championships. The Longhorns have won titles dating as far back as 1949 and all the way up to 2005, and their 36 appearances in the CWS is 11 more than Miami.

Florida State holds the record for the most College World Series appearances without a National Championship with 22. The Seminoles are playing in their 40th consecutive NCAA Baseball Tournament, also an all-time record.

The best run of dominance in the history of the College World Series clearly belongs to USC. The Trojans won five straight championships from 1970 to 1974, and it's unlikely that feat will ever be duplicated. However, going back-to-back isn't anything unusual. South Carolina was the last to do it in 2010 and 2011, while Oregon State did it in 2006 and 2007, beating North Carolina both times. Vanderbilt and Virginia played against each other in the National Championship Series in consecutive years in 2014 and 2015. Both series went the maximum three games. Vandy took the first, while the Hoos exacted revenge the next season.

Coastal Carolina is one of the most improbable champions in the history of the NCAA Baseball Tournament. The Chanticleers were the 2-seed in the Raleigh Regional in 2016, winning two of three games against N.C. State before sweeping LSU in the Super Regionals. Playing in their first ever College World Series, the Chants started off by upsetting top-seed Florida before rolling into the final from there. Coastal Carolina finished the job by winning Games 2 and 3 over the Wildcats after getting shutout in Game 1, thus completing one of the great accomplishments in the history of college baseball.
