The Oklahoma Sooners softball team has the best odds at DraftKings Sportsbook to win the 2023 College World Series. They are installed at -800 and are heading to their events WCWS in a row and are the two-time defending champs. If they were to pull off the three-peat, they would be the first team to do so since UCLA accomplished the feat from 1988-1990.

The Women’s College World Series is a double-elimination tournament until the final two teams play a best-of-three series to determine the national champion. OU (56-1, 18-0 Big 12) has won the last two titles, and despite being down to their final strike twice in Game 2 of their Super Regional against Clemson, they rallied with a three-run comeback in the 7th inning to stay at just one loss this season.

As the No. 1 seed, Oklahoma will open the tournament against No. 9 Stanford. No. 4 Tennessee will face No. 5 Alabama, No. 3 Florida State will take on No. 6 Oklahoma State and No. 7 Washington will match up with No. 15 Utah. The Sooners are riding an NCAA D1 softball record 48-win streak into the playoffs.

The 2023 WCWS will begin on June 1 at the USA Softball Hall of Fame Complex in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
