After an exciting KBO baseball postseason, baseball betting fans now know which team will make the playoffs. Or at least almost all of them. As the remaining spot is taking place with the Doosan Bears and the Kiwoom Heroes. Our 2021 KBO Postseason Update will go over the postseason and what to expect for the playoffs.
Last night, the KT Wiz won against the Samsung Lions 1-0 in a tiebreaker game for their first Korean Series. Not only did they become the pennant winners, they got a bye to the best-of-seven Korean Series. The Korean Baseball Playoffs will begin on November 14.
2021 KBO Postseason Update – Winners and Losers
As with each baseball postseason, there are winners and losers. The big shock this season was the performance of the Doosan Bears. Throughout the entire season, they were always in the top three until the last minute. Needless to say, they are currently fighting for survival against the Kiwoom Heroes for the Wild Card spot.
Those who like to bet on baseball are eager to see how this season will finish. However, many online sportsbooks believe the Doosan Bears will not make it to the playoffs. This is because they are missing several key veteran players this season.
In terms of losses, the Kia Tigers will be parting ways with their manager, Matt Williams. According to sports betting odds, this is not a big surprise to anyone. This is because the Kia Tigers had 2 unfruitful seasons under Williams. In 2020, they went 73-71-6 to rank sixth, 8.5 games out of the final playoff spot. This year, the Tigers went 58-76-10 (wins-losses-ties) in 2021, finishing 10.5 games out of the postseason.
The big winners are of course the KT Wiz who are finishing the season with a 76-59-9 record. Even though the Lions lost, fans will now see them go straight to the second round of the postseason. This is their first time in the playoffs since 2015. The LG Twins are in a solid position and are eagerly awaiting the playoffs.
