For the 72nd time, the NCAA College World Series took place in Omaha, Nebraska, this June. The 2022 NCAA Division I baseball tournament was as exciting as ever with the top teams in the country meeting to crown a new champ.
The 2022 College World Series was won by Ole Miss, who entered the tournament as a +800 underdog, the lowest odds of any team in Omaha. Below is a look at the 2022 odds entering the tournament, and we’ll update this page with next year’s odds as soon as they’re out.
When Is The College World Series?
This year’s College World Series begins on Friday, June 17, with a match between Oklahoma and Texas A&M. The tournament will go through until June 27, when the final game of the College World Series Finals will be played. You can bet on CWS betting odds and NCAA baseball futures right up until the final game.

Stanford And Texas Favored In 2022 College World Series Odds
Odds as of June 15 at BetUS
Stanford Best Bet At +400
If you listened to us a few weeks ago, you could’ve nabbed Stanford at +1400 value, but the Cardinal are still a worthwhile bet at this number.
They’re 47-16 and are the highest-ranked remaining team in the RPI (ranking percentage index) with strong conference wins against the top teams. Stanford won its final 12 regular-season games and built on the streak with a slugfest win over Oregon State in the Pac-12 Tournament.
After dropping a heartbreaking 13-12 game in the Super Regional opener against Connecticut, Stanford clapped back with dominating wins to seal the series and earn a trip to Omaha.
Notre Dame Great College World Series Odds Value
The Fighting Irish are already king slayers, and now they have their sights set on the College World Series crown.
Notre Dame stunned top-seeded Tennessee with a three-game series win over the Volunteers, defeating easily the most talented team on paper and one of the best college baseball teams we’ve seen in a while. With that win under their belt and a lineup hitting its stride, the Irish can make some noise in Omaha and rightfully slid up College World Series betting odds.
At the end of May, Notre Dame earned the 17th seed in the D1 Baseball Top 25 poll but has propelled itself into CWS odds contention with some great postseason play. The Irish have already proven they can beat the best teams in the sport, so this +550 value is a great wager.
College World Series History
Before the Omaha tournament last year, the Vanderbilt Commodores entered the 2021 College World Series as +250 favorites, while the eventual champion Mississippi State Bulldogs entered with CWS odds of +1000.
This year’s College World Series marks the 75th anniversary of the college baseball championship tournament and the 72nd time the event will be held in Omaha, Nebraska. Check out the most recent winners below:

What Is A Futures Bet On College World Series Odds?
When you visit your sportsbook of choice, you’ll see an option to bet on which team will win the College World Series. This kind of bet is a futures wager, which means you’re betting on events that will happen in time. You would see odds listed like this:
Unlike a moneyline bet, where there would be a clear favorite and underdog, the team with the lowest MLB World Series odds is the closest thing to a fave. In this case, it’s Tennessee and Vandy.
The lower teams on the oddsboard, though less likely to win, offer better value. If you were to bet $100 on Mississippi State and they won the College World Series, you’d get a payout of $1,600 – your original $100 is returned, along with your winnings of $1,500. On the other hand, the same bet amount on Tennessee would give you a payout of $475 – you get your $100 back, plus your loot of $375.
Our Odds Calculator can help you determine how much you’d pocket depending on the odds and the amount bet.
