The country with the highest chance of winning was the Dominican Republic, which has many big leaguers, and ‘+200’ was set. This means that if you bet $100, you can only earn $200.
The United States, the winner of the 2017 tournament, followed with +250, followed by Japan, which won twice in a row in 2006 and 2009, with +350.
Puerto Rico (+1100), Venezuela (+1600), and Mexico (+1800) also had lower dividend numbers than Korea.
Korea, which belongs to WBC Group B, will face Australia on March 9, Japan on March 10, Czech Republic on March 12, and China on March 13 at the Tokyo Dome in Japan.
If they finish in second place in Group B, they will advance to the quarterfinals and face the first or second place in Group A, which contains Taiwan, Cuba, Panama, Italy and the Netherlands.
