Have you heard about the East Carolina University Pirates? They’re a college baseball team that’s really good during the regular season, but they haven’t had much luck when it comes to making it to the College World Series in Omaha. They’ve been in the NCAA Baseball Tournament 33 times since 1964 and won their regionals seven times between 2001 and 2022. But they’ve never gotten to play at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, the place where the World Series happens.

This year, the team is doing great! They are ranked number 15 in the whole country. Some people who make guesses about game outcomes think the Pirates could win their first ever title in 2023. They’ve got odds at +6000 on BetMGM North Carolina, which means if you bet on them through one of the North Carolina sports betting apps, you could win a lot of money if they do win the championship.

Right now, in North Carolina, people can’t bet on games through apps or sites, but that might change by the end of the year with the discussion around North Carolina sports betting. Let’s keep an eye on what happens with that, because it could be exciting for bettors!

The Pirates have been almost unbeatable at their home stadium in Greenville, North Carolina, with a winning record that’s super impressive. They’ve won their conference’s regular season title four years in a row now. And they’re doing great this May, too, having scored lots of wins.

If they continue to play well, they might get to host a regional tournament again. They’ve already won the last three regionals in Greenville. Once they get through that, they just need a bit of luck and to keep playing their best baseball. Even a small mistake could cost them a lot, but they’re hoping this will be the year they finally get to Omaha.

In North Carolina, there are also surveys going on about sports betting, and updates about when people might be able to bet using some nice North Carolina sports betting promos. We’re watching out for all the latest news!

So, what do you think? Will 2023 be the year the Pirates finally get to play in the College World Series? They’ve got a lot of fans cheering for them and hoping they’ll make it. The team has the skill, they just need to push through the tough games ahead. Let’s root for the Pirates and see if they can make history this year!
