Doosan Bears vs. LG Twins Betting Preview With Pick – May 6, South Korean KBO League
The South Korean KBO League has barely started, and we’ve already seen a huge surprise. Last year’s champions Doosan were demolished by the LG Twins on Tuesday. The Bears were far from their best in the preseason games, but I don’t think that anyone expected an 8-2 defeat right off the bat!
The good news is that the team has the chance to avenge that loss almost immediately and will face the same opponent on Wednesday.
That’s the main subject of my Doosan Bears vs. LG Twins betting preview that includes the latest odds and my analysis of both sides. I wrap it all up with my Doosan Bears vs. LG Twins prediction and a free betting pick at the end.

Doosan Bears vs. LG Twins Analysis
We saw some problems in the performance of the Doosan Bears recently, but it was only preseason. It seems that we should’ve paid more attention. The LG Twins were excellent on Tuesday and showed a lot of composure to beat the champions.
The pitchers of the underdog were efficient, and the Bears scored only two runs, while their opponent found three in the opening two innings alone. The game stayed close until the ninth when the Twins scored another five to seal the victory.
While the team certainly deserved that triumph, the empathic finish made the score look much bigger than it should have been. Make no mistake, it was a close encounter, and the Doosan Bears will be eager to strike back on Wednesday.
Doosan Bears vs. LG Twins Prediction and Betting Pick
I think that the champions will strike back on Wednesday and register their first victory. The first game was closer than it seems, and the extra motivation should be enough in the second. The price of -165 is good enough for me, and that’s my final pick for this match.
