KBO picks and predictions
Sunday’s slate features plenty of opportunities for value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.
SSG Landers ML (-130) over Kia Tigers
The SSG Landers barely managed to hold on Saturday, beating the Kia Tigers by a score of 2-1. They are now 49-25-3 on the season. The SSG Landers have now won 3 games in a row, but still just sit in 1st place by 1.5 games. They will start Lee Tae-Yang on Sunday morning, who is 5-2 on the season and has an ERA of 2.69. In 17 appearances (11 starts) this season, he has allowed 23 earned runs over 77.0 innings.
With the loss on Saturday, the Tigers are now 38-37-1 on the season. They have lost 6 games in a row and are now in a tie for 4th place in the league standings. The Tigers will counter with Lee Eui-Lee, who is 4-5 on the season and has an ERA of 4.19. In 15 starts this season, he has allowed 38 earned runs over 81.2 innings.
Fading the Tigers has been an automatic play for almost a week now and with another inconsistent pitcher on Sunday, backing the SSG Landers looks to be the worth a play.
KT Wiz ML (-194) over Doosan Bears
The KT Wiz got a pretty easy win on Saturday, beating the Doosan Bears by a score of 8-3. They are now 38-37-2 on the season and sit in a tie for 4th place. The KT Wiz will start So Hyeong-Jun, who is 8-2 on the season and has an ERA of 2.81. In 14 starts this season, he has allowed 29 earned runs over 93.0 innings.
With the loss on Saturday, the Bears are now 32-40-2 on the season and remain in 8th place in the league standings. They will counter with Park Shin-Zi, who is 1-1 on the season and has an ERA of 4.45. In 17 appearances this season (3 starts), he has allowed 15 earned runs over 30.1 innings.
With such limited starting experience for Shin-Zi, Hyeong-Jun has the clear advantage on the mound. For that reason, backing the KT Wiz to win this game will be the play.
Samsung Lions ML (-126) over NC Dinos
Pretty much out of nowhere, the NC Dinos put a beat down on the Samsung Lions on Saturday, beating them by a score of 17-1. The Dinos finally snapped their losing streak after having had several games canceled this week, but remain in 9th place in the league standings with a record of 28-43-2. They will start Song Myung-Gi on Sunday morning, who is 2-5 on the season and has an ERA of 5.00. In 11 starts this season, he has allowed 30 earned runs over 54.0 innings.
With the shocking loss on Saturday, the Lions are now 35-41 on the season, have lost 2 games in a row, and are 6th place in the league standings. They will start Albert Suarez on Sunday morning, who is 4-5 on the season and has an ERA of 2.31. In 15 starts this season, Suarez has allowed 22 earned runs over 85.2 innings.
The Lions have to have a bad taste in their mouth after getting crushed on Saturday. Starting Suarez on Sunday should only increase their chances to bounce back strong, so for that reason, backing the Lions will be the play.

Extra KBO picks and predictions for Sunday, July 3rd
Kiwoom Heroes ML (-166) over Hanwha Eagles
The Kiwoom Heroes held on to win on Saturday, shutting out the Hanwha Eagles by a score of 3-0. The Eagles will start Felix Pena, who is pretty much new to the KBO. For that reason, backing the Heroes to win will be the play.
Lotte Giants vs LG Twins – Over 8.5 runs (-110)
Both starters in this game have struggled to say the least. Glenn Sparkman for the Lotte Giants has an ERA of 4.81, while Im Chan-Kyu has an ERA of 5.98. For that reason, backing the over looks to be worth a play.
