2024 College Baseball Regionals Preview 5 Best Bets to Consider

Hello College Baseball fans, what a season it has been! For some of those who followed us, we absolutely scorched the 1st half of the college baseball season, cashing in 15 of our first 20 days and ripping up to almost +20 units in our first 30 days.

We are very excited for Regional baseball as 64 teams gear up to win the National Championship. 16 of the best teams will host regionals, with 4 teams at each site, with 1 trying to make it through.

Future Bet Updates

Before the season began we gave out Future bets both in a previous article, and of course out to our members! We are looking pretty good as we stand. We have 2 of the top 4 favorites, and 3 of the top 6!

I am very excited to see what Texas A&M and Arkansas can do behind their pitching staffs. A quick rundown of our selections with new odds are below. Odds below are from DK.

  • Texas AM +2000 to +500(LEADER)
  • Arkansas +1000 to +1000
  • Wake Forest +700 to +1200
  • Alabama +3500 to +5000
  • TCU +1600 (Did not make CWS)

Regional Favorites to Watch and Dark Horses

Every year I come up with a list of some favorites to keep an eye on and a couple dark horses to make a deep run and possibly win it and this year I assume most have similar favorites. It is hard to ignore the top elite pitching on some of these staffs, they have shined all season, and they are usually what shines, more times than not, in the postseason.

Texas A&M as shown by their odds, is the most complete team. The Aggies have top end pitching, ranking top 10 in 5 of 7 major categories, while also having one of the nation's top offenses.

Tennessee's pitching and home run prowess has been something to see this season, and something I didn't see coming. They also have all the tools to win it this year and they should have an easy time in the Regionals.

Duke may be one of the most balanced teams, both pitching and offensively in the country. The Blue Devils are top 30 in 6 of 8 offensive categories, and 6 of 7 pitching categories. This team is for real behind a very good ace and closer, and if this team's bats stay hot, they will be trouble.

Here are a few teams I like that are not ranked #1 seeds in their group to take Regionals: Indiana State, South Carolina, Mississippi State, DBU, San Diego, Wake Forest.

Regional Winners We Are Taking

Now I do not expect to hit all of these because college baseball is a WILD sport, which is why I love it so much. And even though I believe the best teams have great starting pitching, good relief, and clutch hitting, anything can happen in these games.

Mississippi St has a very tough challenge with Virginia's bats at play. Virginia was one of my favorite teams all season because of their offense, but their pitching is not very good. I believe that is where Mississippi State can take an edge in this Regional. They can score just enough runs, even with their anemic offense, to get it done.

Duke is going to win this Regional behind Jonathan Santucci, Andrew Healy, and Charlie Belenson. They awarded Oklahoma the Regional, then stuck them with top-10 Duke, who is better in almost every statistical category, and they play in a tougher conference. It's never easy, but Duke should pull this out.

DBU may be a little biased as they are my favorite college baseball team, but they have all the stuff to win this Regional. They rank Top 10 in 3 and Top 15 in 5 pitching categories, are hitting .302, while slugging .545, with 55 home runs, all top 15 ranked stats on offense, while also boasting a 32nd ranked wRC+ while every other team in this group is ranked much higher. Depends how pitching lines up for them but if their offense hits, their pitching should keep them in each game.

I have not been a believer in North Carolina State all year and that doesn't stop here. South Carolina, while much better at home, isn't too far away from home, and pitching carries. I believe their pitching staff will be able to rack up the Ks, while keeping walks down, and thus keeping ERA down, enough to outscore each opponent.

South Carolina is very patient at the plate, walking 4th most in country+, with 28th ranked on-base percentage. They are a fairly balanced group and I believe they will get it done in Raleigh.

Indiana State has a tough task with Kentucky hosting, but it's not a far trip for the Sycamores. They rank 28th in ERA, 13th in K% rate, 23rd in K/BB% rate, and 28th in ERA. Their offense ranks 29th in homers, 28th in slugging, 27th in wRC+, while averaging almost 8 runs a game.

If Indiana State's pitching staff keeps things in check, things can get very interesting for the +280(Current odds) dogs.

Best Bets:
Mississippi St +130
Duke -120
DBU +175
South Carolina +105
Indiana St +280
