Every Friday of the 2020 college baseball season, the Southern Slams staff will provide a ‘Series of the Week’ piece featuring staff picks for one of the sports’ biggest series that weekend.
To start off the season, we decided to go with the Louisville-Ole Miss series at Swayze Field in Oxford. While the 2019 College World Series rematch between Michigan and Vanderbilt is sure to be epic, it’s only a one-game spectacle.
We chose to highlight an incredible Opening Weekend in Oxford, Mississippi, with the Ole Miss Rebels’ fanbase eagerly awaiting first pitch on Friday.
The right field student section has given off the vibe of a Duke basketball campground over the last few days and now, it’s finally time for some solid baseball.
Our staff went back and forth on this one, but here are the final picks heading into first pitch. Just remember, this is our first week, so you might want to hold off until next Friday before putting our picks in the bank.
Jackson Fryburger: Ole Miss wins series (2-1)
Frank Parker: Louisville wins series (2-1)
Wes Jackson: Ole Miss wins series (2-1)
Randall Bost: Louisville sweeps series (3-0)
Jordan Richardson: Louisville wins series (2-1)
Our picks sure are conflicting on this one! We highly suggest you take our advice and hold off on using our expertise for betting just yet, though!
