However, for those the Bet on Baseball in Korea, the KBO postseason means something different. Especially if they have any future bets on the KBO or want to show their support to their favorite team. Therefore, whether you are a gambler or just a fan, Are you Ready for the 2023 KBO Postseason?
The LG Twins with an 85-54-2 record are the only team that will definitively play in the 2023 KBO Postseason. This is because they currently rank 1 and are 6 wins ahead of the KT Wiz who rank second. Thus, with only a few games left in the season, it is impossible for them to lose their spot.
In addition, the KT Wiz are also a team everyone expects to see in the postseason. This is because they are 6 wins ahead of the SSG Landers and the NC Dinos. Therefore, the betting odds show that it is impossible for any other team to catch-up. Thus, the only thing missing is which other team will be part of the KBO postseason.
The 2023 KBO Postseason Starts on October 19, 2023
According to baseball betting news, the 2023 KBO Postseason will begin on October 19, 2023 with the Wildcard Series. Furthermore, the Korean series can potentially end as late a November 15, 2023. This season, the Wildcard Series will be a matchup between the fifth and fourth ranking team.
At the moment, it is a close race to decide which team that will be playing in the Wildcard series. This is because the SSG Landers and NC Dinos are both in third place with 73 wins. However, Doosan is in fourth place with 72 wins and the KIA Tigers in fifth place with 71 wins.
Needless to say, the big question is whether the KIA Tigers can make the playoffs? However, it seems unlikely. This is because they would have to win their last game and Doosan would have to lose their remaining 4 games.
For the fourth ranking team to advance to the next round, they have 2 choices. Either beat outright the fifth ranking team or at least tie the first game against them. The fifth ranking team on the other hand will be at a serious disadvantage. This is because they must defeat them twice in a row and will not have the home advantage.
The next two rounds of the KBO playoffs will be the best-of-five games and the Korean Series. Afterwards, the KBO Championship final will take place which will be a best of 7 games.
