The Tennessee Volunteers men’s baseball and Lady Vols women’s softball teams are deep into their respective seasons. They’re two of the best teams in the nation, but can you place a bet on them in Tennessee?
Is college baseball & softball betting legal in Tennessee?
Yep, it sure is!
This time last year, bettors were hard-pressed to find either such option at Tennessee sportsbooks. But thanks to the growing popularity of sports betting, the state’s list of approved events has expanded, and sportsbooks now offer wagering on both.
Here are the Volunteer State sportsbooks that currently offer college baseball and softball betting.
Tennessee Vols college baseball betting
As of now, only a few Tennessee sportsbooks offer men’s college baseball betting. Even less offer odds on women’s softball — but we’ll get to that in a minute.
The Tennessee Vols men’s baseball team is celebrating another stellar year with their current 24-1 season record and No. 1 national ranking. They’re 6-0 in the Southeastern Conference and boast a strong 16-game win streak along with a flawless home-field record.
This impressive season record has made them increasingly popular in the eyes of Tennessee bettors. However, only three Tennessee sportsbooks currently offer wagering on upcoming Volunteer matchups:
Tonight’s Tennessee game at Vanderbilt is set to be a tossup. DraftKings, Caesars and BetMGM all give the Volunteers a slight edge on the moneyline with -125 odds. Vanderbilt sits at -105 odds, and the over/under is set at 11.5 total runs.
2022 College World Series futures odds
Tennessee fell out of the 2021 World Series after losing an elimination match to Texas. This year, they’ll be looking for redemption.
The 2022 College World Series gets underway Thursday, June 16, and at least four Tennessee sportsbooks offer wagering on the overall winner:
- FanDuel TN
FanDuel TN favors Tennessee for the title win with +850 odds. Texas trails behind with +950 odds, followed by Oklahoma State at +1300 odds.
BetMGM and DraftKings also favor the Vols, though bettors can only snag them at +700 and +480 odds respectively.
Caesars, on the other hand, gives Texas the best chance of winning +800 odds. Meanwhile, Tennessee sits behind Texas, Vanderbilt and Arkansas with +1200 odds.
Tennessee Lady Vols softball betting
There aren’t any Tennessee sportsbooks offering lines on upcoming women’s college softball matchups.
Luckily, a few options do exist when it comes to 2022 Women’s College World Series futures betting.
The Lady Vols enter postseason play beginning Tuesday, May 10 with the SEC Tournament. If all goes well there, they’ll advance to the finals beginning June 2.
Two Tennessee operators currently offer 2022 Women’s College World Series futures odds:
DraftKings gives Oklahoma the best likelihood of winning with +135 odds. Tennessee finds itself situated midway down the list with the 14th-best chance of a title victory at +3000 odds — tied with Oklahoma State, Michigan, Duke and Georgia Bulldogs.
Caesars also gives Oklahoma the top odds of claiming the title, though bettors can find slightly more value here with +160 odds. Similarly, Caesars gives Tennessee generous +4000 odds of becoming champs.
