This KBO season could not get any more exciting as it is still unknown which team will make the playoffs. However, for the Final Week of the KBO Post Season the Samsung Lions are on top at the moment. This is because they currently have a 75-57-9 record over the second place KT Wiz (74-57-8) by half a game.
Last Friday and Saturday, the Lions swept their 2-game set against the KT Wiz. For KT Wiz betting fans, this is quite a shock since they have been the top team since August. It was not until Sunday that the KT Wiz put an end to their 5-game losing streak. This was done by by defeating the Kiwoom Heroes 7-1. However, as things stand, it is still anybody’s game as we enter the final week of the season.
Final Week of the KBO Post Season: Which Team will make the Playoffs
Only the eighth-place Giants, ninth-place Kia Tigers and tenth-place Eagles out of the KBO playoffs. For the remaining teams, anything can happen with some hard work and a lot of luck. Let’s take a look at some of the possible outcomes for this week.
First off, sports betting websites expect the Lions and the KT Wiz to make it to the playoffs. While the Lions only have three games left in the post-season, they still have good odds to stay first. This is because for their last 2 games, they are against the Dinos and are 10-4 against them this season.
The Wiz still have 5 games left but it may not be to their advantage if they continue to lose. As to the LG Twins, they remain third but are within striking distance to take the first place. In addition, they have 6 games left in the post-season but it will be a tough week of constant playing. According to sports betting news, their last 4 games will be in 3 different cities. Needless to say, it is a tough schedule that will affect their playing.
The Bears (67-64-8), SSG Landers (64-62-14), the Dinos (65-65-8) and the Heroes (66-66-7) are vying for the final two spots. Furthermore, only 1.5 games separate them. For the NC Dinos, there is a lot of pressure on them. This is because, they are trying to avoid being the first defending Korean Series champions to miss the postseason.
