KBO picks and predictions

Saturday’s slate features plenty of opportunities for value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.

LG Twins -2.5 (-128) over Samsung Lions

The LG Twins beat the Kiwoom Heroes on Friday morning by a score of 6-3. They are now 73-44-2 on the season and are still in 2nd place in the league standings. The Twins will start Adam Plutko on Saturday morning, who is 14-5 on the season and has an ERA of 2.52. In 25 starts this season, he has allowed 42 earned runs over 150.0 innings.

The Samsung Lions beat the Lotte Giants on Friday morning by a score of 4-0. They are now 53-67-2 and remain in 8th place in the league standings. The Lions will counter with Choi Ha-Neul, who is 1-3 on the season and has an ERA of 5.04. In 13 appearances this season (4 starts), he has allowed 17 earned runs over 30.1 innings.

The Twins have a clear advantage on the mound with Plutko as he has been much more consistent this entire season. For that reason, backing the Twins will be the play.

Lotte Giants ML (-164) over NC Dinos

The NC Dinos beat the KT Wiz on Friday morning by a score of 17-1. They are now 53-63-3 on the season and are in 6th place in the league standings. The Dinos will start Shin Min-Hyeok, who is 4-8 on the season and has an ERA of 4.53. In 21 appearances this season (20 starts), he has allowed 52 earned runs over 103.1 innings.

The Lotte Giants lost to the Samsung Lions on Friday morning by a score of 4-0. They are now 55-66-4 on the season and are in 7th place in the league standings. The Giants will counter with Charlie Barnes, who is 11-11 on the season and has an ERA of 3.39. In 28 starts this season, he has allowed 65 earned runs over 172.2 innings.

The Dinos played pretty much a perfect game on Friday morning, but run into a much better starter on Friday in Barnes. He has been consistent for the majority of the season, therefore backing the Giants will be the play.

Hanwha Eagles +1.5 (-122) over SSG Landers

The SSG Landers lost to the Kia Tigers on Friday by a score of 16-9. They are now 78-41-4 on the season and remain in 1st place in the league standings, though their lead is down to 4.0 games. The SSG Landers will start Park Jong-Hun on Saturday morning, who is 2-2 on the season and has an ERA of 6.75. In 6 starts this season, he has allowed 18 earned runs over 24.0 innings.

The Hanwha Eagles lost to the Doosan Bears on Friday morning by a score of 11-0. They are now 49-68-2 on the season and remain in last place in the league standings. The Eagles will counter with Kim Min-Woo, who is 5-10 on the season and has an ERA of 5.01. In 24 starts this season, he has allowed 74 earned runs over 133.0 innings.

Neither starter in this game has been great this season, and Min-Woo has actually been the more consistent pitcher. For that reason, backing the Eagles to keep this game close will be the play.

Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +421.

Extra KBO picks for Saturday, September 10

Doosan Bears +1.5 (-130) over Kia Tigers

The Kia Tigers will start Im Gi-Yeong, who has an ERA of 4.38. However, he is just 2-11 on the season. On the other side, the Doosan Bears will counter Choi Seung-Yong, who has an ERA of 4.69. Because the Tigers have not won many games when Gi-Yeong has started, backing the Bears on the run line will be the play.

KT Wiz ML (-134) over Kiwoom Heroes

The KT Wiz will start Wes Benjamin, who has an ERA of 2.91. He also has an ERA of 0.56 against the Kiwoom Heroes. For that reason, backing the KT Wiz looks to be worth a play on Saturday morning.
