The KBO is taking the baseball-loving part of the world by storm no matter where they’re located, and you can use that to your advantage by playing today’s KBO Prop Pool at DraftKings Sportsbook.

There are nine questions to be answered, including picking the straight-up winner in five games that begin at 5:30 a.m. ET tomorrow morning. Let’s take a look at a few of the questions and make some best picks on today’s KBO slate.

Which team will win?

  • Kiwoom Heroes
  • KIA Tigers

It is very possible that the KIA Tigers with former National League Manager of The Year Matt Williams are just a very bad baseball team. They’ve lost the first two games of this series, and KIA’s starting pitcher today Min-woo Lee only had six starts last season, and finished with a 5.45 ERA. This could get ugly, which makes sense as Kiwoom goes for the sweep as a -195 favorite.

Which team will win?

  • NC Dinos
  • Samsung Lions

It seems as if NC just has too much offensively for the Lions for now, and the pitching for Samsung doesn’t seem to be improving. Today David Buchanan starts for the home team, who lost the first two games by a combined 8-3 and didn’t seem to effective at the plate. Buchanan was 20-30 the last three seasons in Japan, and much worse than that in MLB previously.

Which away team will score the most runs?

Kiwoom Heroes
Lotte Giants
Doosan Bears
Hanwha Eagles
NC Dinos
2 or more tie

We’ve got two candidates here, as both Kiwoom and NC are both hitting it well and facing poor pitching. But we’ll go with Kiwoom because they’ve seen Min-woo Lee before, whereas NC has yet to face Buchanan and pitching tends to be a hair ahead of hitting the first couple appearances.

Will any player on 5/7 hit 2 or more Home Runs?

Yes
No

No one has gone yard twice yet, and the power numbers haven’t been terrific so far. The league is averaging 2.2 HR’s per game for both teams, so one player hitting a pair is a tall order.

Will any player on 5/7 record 3 or more Hits?

Yes
No

We’ve had a three-hit player on each of the first two days, and we’re not dealing with the top of anyone’s rotation on Day 3. Over!
