Little League World Series Betting

The Little League World Series is an annual baseball tournament for kids aged 10 to 12 years old and has been held in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, since 1947. The field of 16 at the 2019 Little League World Series is down to the final four. Curacao reached the International final with a 7-2 win over South Korea and Louisiana advanced to the U.S. bracket championship with a 10-0 defeat of Virginia.

Waiting for the bracket championship games are the two tournament favorites. Hawai’i cruised through the U.S. side winning all three games, including a 5-2 victory over Louisiana in the first game. The State of Hawai’i looks to go back-to-back after a team from Honolulu captured the 2018 title.

Japan has dominated the LLWS recently and they look like the team to beat once again. The Japanese are playing in their third straight international final with a chance to reach the LLWS title game for the second time in three years. Teams from Tokyo enjoyed a dominant run starting in 2010 with five titles in eight years.

Over the years the event has become a worldwide spectacle and has grown in popularity, especially in the U.S. where regional qualifying games and LLWS contests are broadcast on ESPN. Championship games from each bracket will be televised on ABC on Saturday, August 24. The International game between Japan and Curacao starts at 12:30 p.m. ET. The tilt between Hawai’i and Louisiana will determine the U.S. representative in the final. That game is slated for 3:30 p.m. ET.

With the growth and popularity of the game, the Little League World Series has undergone numerous changes. Eight teams from the U.S. bracket and eight more from the international bracket make up the current 16-team format. The tournament is double-elimination until the U.S. and international championship games, which remain single-elimination. The bracket winners advance to the Championship game.

Leading up to the LLWS, little leagues around the globe select their All-Star teams to compete in regional qualifying tournaments. Standards vary for each region, but both the U.S. and international brackets consist of eight regions. The eight regional winners in the U.S. come from: New England, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, Great Lakes, Southeast, Southwest, Northwest and West. The eight international divisions are: Asia-Pacific and Middle East, Australia, Canada, Caribbean, Europe and Africa, Japan, Latin America and Mexico.

From the inaugural 1947 tournament through 1956, there were mostly U.S.-based teams competing in a single-elimination format. Regions were introduced in 1957, and that tournament included the first non-U.S. champion, Monterrey, Mexico. In 1976 the U.S. and international brackets were established. The bracket winners would then meet in the championship game. The number of regions doubled to 16 in 2001.

As a country the United States has won nearly half of the LLWS titles with 35. However, from 1969 to 1991 teams from Taiwan dominated winning 15 titles during that 23-year period. Teams from Tokyo, Japan enjoyed a dominant run starting in 2010 with five titles in eight years. That streak was halted last year when Honolulu, Hawai’i, shutout South Korea for the state’s third LLWS title and the 35th for the U.S. California has produced the most wins for the U.S. with seven, though it hasn’t had a winner since 2011. California has sent a team to the championship game a total of 24 times.
