KBO picks and predictions

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

LG Twins vs Kiwoom Heroes ML (-118)

The Kiwoom Heroes edged out a win over the LG Twins, beating them 2-0 on Saturday morning. The Heroes are now 39-26-1 on the season and remain 2nd place in the league standings. They will start Eric Jokisch, who is 7-4 and has an ERA of 2.52. In 13 starts this year he has allowed 23 earned runs over 82.0 innings.

With the loss on Saturday, the LG Twins are now 37-28-1. They still sit in 3rd place in the league standings, trailing the Heroes by 2.0 games for 2nd place. The Twins will counter with Adam Plutko, who is 6-3 in 2022 and has an ERA of 3.18. In 13 starts this season, he has allowed 27 earned runs over 76.1 innings.

The starting matchup is relatively even here, but Jokisch has still been the more consistent pitcher over the course of the season. For that reason, backing the Heroes to keep pace with the SSG Landers will be the play.

SSG Landers ML (-174) vs Lotte Giants

The SSG Landers were able to cruise to an easy win on Saturday, beating the Lotte Giants by a score of 10-5. They are now 42-22-3 on the season and remain firmly on top of the league standings. They will start Lee Tae-Yang, who is 4-2 on the season and has an ERA of 2.71. In 15 appearances (9 starts) he has allowed 19 earned runs over 63.0 innings.

With the loss on Saturday, the Giants are now 28-34-2 and have lost 2 games in a row. The Giants still remain in 8th place in standings. They will counter with Kim Jin-Uk, who is 2-2 and has an ERA of 5.46. In 7 starts he has allowed 18 earned runs over 29.2 innings.

The SSG Landers have a clear pitching advantage on Sunday with Tae-Yang, and with their offense starting to heat up on Saturday, backing them to win will be the play on Sunday.

KT Wiz ML (-112) vs Doosan Bears

The KT Wiz were shutout on Saturday, losing to the Doosan Bears by a score of 5-0. They are now 31-33-2 on the season and remain in 5th place in the league standings. They will start So Hyeong-Jun, who is 6-2 on the season and has an ERA of 2.85. In 12 starts he has allowed 25 earned runs over 79.0 innings.

With the win on Saturday, the Bears are now 30-33-1 and are currently in 7th place in the league standings. They will counter with Choi Won-Joon, who is 4-4 and has an ERA of 2.79. In 12 starts he has allowed 21 earned runs over 67.2 innings.

The starting pitching matchup is relatively even for this game, but because Hyeong-Jun is in better form as of recently, backing the KT Wiz to bounce back with a win will be the play.

Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +450.

Extra KBO picks and predictions for Sunday, June 19th

Hanwha Eagles vs NC Dinos ML (-182)

This is a game between the 2 worst teams in the KBO, yet the NC Dinos still have a huge edge on the mound. Not to mention, the Hanwha Eagles have lost 7 games in a row. With their starting pitching posting an ERA of 10.50, fading the Eagles has to be the play.

Samsung Lions ML (+100) vs Kia Tigers

The Kia Tigers are not a bad team, they just have a starting pitcher, who has been inconsistent all season. Ronnie Williams has an ERA of 4.78 overall and his ERA against the Samsung Lions is 10.38. For that reason, backing the Lions will be the play.
