As sports betting grows in the US, the number of betting markets increases across virtually the entire industry. That means there are more sports to bet on and more types of bets to make on various sports.
The good news for Tennessee Vols fans is that some sportsbooks have added college baseball to their list of offerings.
Even better, although most sportsbooks throughout the regular season typically only list futures odds for which team will win the College World Series, some of them in the postseason start offering odds for individual games beginning with conference tournaments.
That means Vols fans can use Tennessee sports betting apps to bet on individual games in this week’s SEC Tournament being held in Hoover, Ala. Those fans who are new to sports betting can claim sports betting bonuses to help them pad their betting wallet at the start.
Vols Baseball Begins Postseason This Week
Tennessee has won all three games it has played in the SEC Tournament to advance to Sunday afternoon’s championship game against Florida.
Three sportsbooks, including DraftKings Tennessee and Caesars Tennessee, have listed odds for Tennessee’s first three games of the SEC Tournament, and two have already listed odds for Sunday’s game against Florida. The Vols are bigger favorites for Sunday’s game than they have been in any of the previous three games.

DraftKings, Caesars, and other sportsbooks also have odds for other games being played this week throughout the country. All of the sportsbooks are likely to add more games throughout each day so check back periodically to see when Tennessee’s future postseason games are added.
While some sportsbooks will list only moneyline odds for each game, some will also list totals. As can be expected, most of the totals listed for college games are higher than what will be found in MLB games.
Dominance Sets Up Tennessee As CWS Favorite
The Vols rode a 24-game winning streak to a 47-7 regular season record and a spot atop all of the major rankings for the first time in school history. Tennessee ranks first nationally in ERA (2.37), first in WHIP (0.95), first in home runs (137), and third in runs per game (9.4).
It has been an astounding year that likely will not feel like an overwhelming success without a second consecutive trip to the Omaha for the College World Series and a chance to make up for last year’s 0-2 showing.
With knowledge of this program’s continued upward trajectory under coach Tony Vitello and the sheer dominance it has shown this season, oddsmakers have Tennessee as a short favorite to be the one that celebrates in a dogpile on Charles Schwab Field Omaha infield in late June.
Here are some of the favorites to win the College World Series available at DraftKings and Caesars.
Team DraftKings Caesars FanDuel
Tennessee +250 +135 +250
Oregon State +900 +900 +800
Stanford +1200 +1200 +600

Oklahoma State +2500 +2000 +2500
Arkansas +2500 +3500 +5000

The odds for Tennessee show just how dramatic the difference can be from sportsbook to sportsbook. It’s also great proof of why it is necessary to shop for the best lines when making wagers, especially futures wagers like this.
If you bet $100 at Caesars on the Vols to win it all, you would profit $125. On the other hand, if you wager that same $100 on the Vols at DraftKings, you would profit $350.
