KBO picks and predictions

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

KT Wiz ML (-182) over Samsung Lions

The KT Wiz lost their game on Sunday morning to the LG Twins by a score of 3-1. The KT Wiz are now 34-36-2 on the season. They have lost 2 games in a row and are 5th place in the league standings. They will start So Hyeong-Jun, who is 7-2 this year and has an ERA of 2.69. In 13 starts he has allowed 26 earned runs over 87.0 innings.

The Samsung Lions won their game on Sunday, beating the lowly Hanwha Eagles by a score of 6-2. The Lions are now 34-38. They have won 2 games in a row and have moved up to 6th place in the league standings. The Lions will counter with Baek Jung-Hyun, who is 0-7 and has an ERA of 6.31. In 11 starts he has allowed 43 earned runs over 61.1 innings.

These teams might be right next to each other in the standings, but there is a huge gap between the starting pitchers. The fact that Jun-Hyun has still yet to win a game is reason enough to fade him in this spot, therefore backing the KT Wiz will be the play.

NC Dinos ML (+106) over LG Twins

The NC Dinos ended their week on Sunday morning with a loss to the SSG Landers by a score of 7-3. They are now 27-42-1. The Dinos have lost 3 games in a row and still remain in 9th place. They will start Koo Chang-Mo, who is 4-0 in 2022 and has an ERA of 0.31. In 5 starts he has allowed just 1 earned run over 28.2 innings.

The LG Twins won their game on Sunday morning, beating the KT Wiz by a score of 3-1. They are now 42-29-1. The Twins have won 2 games in a row and are sitting in 3rd place in the league standings. They will counter with Casey Kelly, who is 9-1 and has an ERA of 2.71. In 12 starts this year he has allowed 24 earned runs over 79.2 innings.

While both pitchers have been among the best in the KBO this season, Chang-Mo has been even more dominant than Kelly. For that reason, backing the Dinos to win will be the play on Tuesday morning.

Doosan Bears vs Lotte Giants – Under 9.5 runs (-132)

Despite both pitchers having an ERA over 4.00, the under looks to be the better play in this game. In his last 3 starts Lee Young-Ha has allowed 2 runs or less in each one. He has allowed a total of 5 runs during this stretch over 18.2 innings. In 2 starts against the Giants he has allowed 4 earned runs over 12.2 innings, so this also an offense that he has had success against.

On the other side, Glenn Sparkman has allowed 4 or more runs in just 3 starts. In 2 starts against the Bears he has allowed 3 runs (2 earned) over 9.1 innings. Other than a recent poor start against the Kia Tigers, Sparkman has allowed 2 runs or less in 3 of his last 4 starts. This total is high based on the overall numbers for these pitchers, but their recent starts would suggest a low scoring game. For that reason, backing the under will be the play.

Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +460.

Extra KBO picks and predictions for Tuesday, June 28th

SSG Landers vs Hanwha Eagles – Under 9.5 runs (-126)

The SSG Landers come into this game having won 3 games in a row and will now face the last place Hanwha Eagles. They will start Oh Won-Seok, who has an ERA of 3.95. Against the Eagles, he has an ERA of 1.50, so the Eagles should not be expected to score many runs here on Tuesday. The Eagles will counter with Yefry Ramirez, who has an ERA of 3.86. He has just 1 start this season, so he should not be expected to be crushed here, making the under worth a look.

Kiwoom Heroes ML (-108) over Kia Tigers

The Kiwoom Heroes come into this game having won 2 games in a row and are trying to keep pace with the SSG Landers. They will start Choi Won-Tae, who is 4-3 on the season and has an ERA of 3.48. He has been slightly better than Lee Eui-Lee for the Kia Tigers, who has an ERA of 3.91. For that reason, backing the Heroes to win will be the play.
