2015 NCAA College World Series: How to watch Virginia vs. Florida

Here we go again!

Get Them While They're Hot!

Four short days ago, the Virginia Cavaliers pulled off a huge 1-0 upset victory over the Florida Gators. The bad news is that the Hoos have to do it again to reach the finals. The good news: UVA will have two shots to do so.

Wahoo fans would feel MUCH better if the team could take care of business this afternoon.  A victory sends Virginia to the championship round of the College World Series, while a loss sets up a do-or-die matchup Saturday against Florida.

The Cavaliers enter the game at 41-22 (but 7-0 in postseason play), with Florida at 51-17 (and 8-1 in the postseason).  The big news for Virginia is that Nathan Kirby (5-2, 2.28 ERA), who has been sidelined by injury since mid-April, will start; he'll be met by Florida's Logan Shore (10-6, 2.55 ERA)

Virginia is a +180 underdog against Florida (-220).  This means that a $100 bet on the Hoos returns $180 (and that Vegas gives UVA about a 1/3 chance of a victory today).  However, UVA is a -150 favorite to win one of the two games needed to advance to the championship round.
