Here are the numbers.
Tennessee swept the Knoxville regionals with back to back nights of late inning dramatics, moving on to the supers to face Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish beat Texas Tech twice last weekend to punch their ticket to Knoxville for a three game series against the nation’s top-ranked team.
The Volunteers were massive favorites last weekend, and that will unsurprisingly be the case once again here. Per DraftKings Sportsbook, Tennessee is -400 to beat Notre Dame advance to the College World Series.

Additionally, Tennessee is favored to pull off the sweep, with -170 odds on UNDER 2.5 games in the series.
Notre Dame and Tennessee will begin their best-of-three series on Friday night at 6 p.m. ET. The Volunteers have -300 odds to take game one. ESPN2 will have the coverage.
