KBO picks and predictions

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

Kia Tigers ML (-122) over LG Twins

The Kia Tigers ended last week with a win over the Hanwha Eagles, beating them by a score of 6-3. They are now 41-39-1 on the season. The Tigers have won 3 games in a row and are currently in 5th place in the league standings. They will start Yang Hyeon-Jong on Tuesday morning, who is 7-4 on the season and has an ERA of 3.15. In 17 starts this season, he has allowed 35 earned runs over 100.0 innings.

The LG Twins finished last week with a win over the Doosan Bears, crushing them by a score of 9-0. They are now 51-30-1 on the season. The Twins have won 7 games in a row and are currently still 3rd place in the league standings. They will counter with Lee Min-Ho on Tuesday morning, who is 7-4 on the season and has an ERA of 5.20. In 15 starts this season, he has allowed 42 earned runs over 72.1 innings.

As good as the Twins have been over the last week, they are still at a disadvantage on the mound for Tuesday’s game. Hyeon-Jong has been slightly more consistent overall this season and also when facing the Twins, so backing the Tigers to win will be the play.

Samsung Lions ML (+126) over KT Wiz

The Samsung Lions ended last week with a loss to the SSG Landers by a score of 7-2. They are now 35-48 on the season. The Lions have lost 9 games in a row and are sitting in 8th place in the league standings. The Lions will start Won Tae-In, who is 4-5 on the season and has an ERA of 3.71. In 14 starts this season, he has allowed 36 earned runs over 87.1 innings.

The KT Wiz also ended last week with a loss, losing to the Lotte Giants by a score of 9-1. They are now 35-44-3 on the season and are in 6th place in the league standings. The Giants will start Odrisamer Despaigne, who is 5-8 on the season and has an ERA of 4.33. In 17 starts this season, he has allowed 46 earned runs over 95.2 innings.

The Lions have the longest losing streak in the KBO right now, but have the better pitcher for Tuesday’s game. Tae-In has performed well against the KT Wiz this season as well, therefore backing the Lions will be the play.

Kiwoom Heroes ML (-178) over SSG Landers

The Kiwoom Heroes ended their week with a win against the NC Dinos, beating them by a score of 2-0. They are now 54-30-1 on the season. The Heroes have won 3 games in a row and remain in 2nd place in the league standings. They will start Eric Jokisch on Tuesday morning, who is 7-4 on the season and has an ERA of 2.51. In 16 starts this season, he has allowed 28 earned runs over 100.1 innings.

The SSG Landers also won their game to end the week this past Sunday, beating the Samsung Lions by a score of 7-2. They are now 55-26-3 on the season. The SSG Landers have won 4 games in a row and remain in 1st place in the league standings. They will counter with Noh Kyung-Eun, who is 4-3 on the season, and has an ERA of 3.44. In 7 starts this season, he has allowed 13 earned runs over 34.0 innings.

This is a battle of the top 2 teams in the league and a game where the Heroes have the pitching advantage. Jokisch has been much more consistent, and even though he has not fared well against the SSG Landers, backing the Heroes still looks to be worth a play.

Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +542.

Bonus KBO picks and predictions for Tuesday, July 12

Hanwha Eagles vs Lotte Giants – Under 9.5 (-122)

Neither starter in this game has been great, however; they both have had several good starts recently. Jang Min-Je has allowed a total of 4 runs over his last 3 starts for the Hanwha Eagles and Lee In-Bok has allowed 4 runs (3 earned) over his last 3 starts for the LG Twins. For that reason, backing the under looks to be worth a play.

Doosan Bears vs NC Dinos – Under 9.5 runs (-124)

The Doosan Bears come into this game having lost 3 games in a row and the NC Dinos have lost 4 games in a row. Both starters have been below average this season, however; they have both been solid when facing each other’s teams. For that reason, backing the under looks to be worth a play.
