Online Sports betting update for Thursday

The College World Series has certainly been a surprise for sports fans such as myself, especially those wishing for a playoff season to make up for the relative lack of action provided by the NBA Championship series between the San Antonio Spurs and the Cleveland Cavaliers (which I happen to still be a little bitter about). However, this NCAA tournament has really turned some heads this year, and given a fresh outlook on college baseball as a legitimate sport to watch and wager on. With Wednesday’s games completed, one half of the final series puzzle was complete as Oregon State easily handled UC-Irvine after jumping out to a quick 4-0 lead in the third inning of play. On the other side of the bracket, North Carolina put down Rice for a big 6-1 win and moving on to a second game on Thursday evening that would possible decide the final series and put UNC back up against OSU for a title rematch. It’s been a crazy journey for these teams the second time around, and the solid play and consistently perfect defense from the two teams has really paid off.

So for Thursday night, betting on sports would certainly have to take in the North Carolina vs. Rice game, as the outcome could put the two same teams back in the final match-up of the College World series for only the second time in the 61 year history of the tournament. Naturally, my online sports betting would lead me to see this history finally repeated, and thus choosing the Tarheels to win the game and advance to a second duel against the OSU Beavers. Luckily enough for me, and for all of the North Carolina fanbase, the Tarheels pulled off an exciting 7-4 victory, and will wait two more day to meet up in the best-of-three series starting on Saturday. After last year’s 3-2 loss to the Beavers coming from a run scored on an error, you can bet on North Carolina to be fully prepared come Saturday to take a shot at the title, and hopefully not make any game altering mistakes this time around. On the other hand though, I will have to continue to bet on the Oregon State Beavers, as they have been my team of choice since the beginning of the tournament, and are in essence my ‘lucky horse’. Either team you choose to root for or wager on will certainly be an exciting time for any sports fan, and one series this year that shouldn’t be missed.
