KBO picks and predictions

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

LG Twins ML (-255) over Samsung Lions

The LG Twins ended last week with a 4-1 win over the Lotte Giants. The Twins are now 45-30-1 on the season and are comfortably in 3rd place in the league standings at the moment. They will start Casey Kelly, who is 10-1 and has an ERA of 2.52. In 14 starts he has allowed 24 earned runs over 85.2 innings.

The Samsung Lions lost their game on Sunday to the NC Dinos 11-6. They have now lost 3 games in a row and are 6th place in the league standings. The Lions will counter with Baek Jung-Hyun, who is 0-8 and has an ERA of 6.44. In 12 starts this year he has allowed 46 earned runs over 64.1 innings.

Kelly has been dominant this season to say the least. The Twins win almost every time he takes the mound, so backing the Twins will be the play for this game.

NC Dinos ML over Hanwha Eagles

The NC Dinos ended last week with an 11-6 win over the Samsung Lions on Sunday morning. The Dinos are now 29-43-2 on the season. They have won 2 games in a row but are still in 9th place in the league standings. The Dinos will start Koo Chang-Mo on, who is 4-1 in 2022 and has an ERA of 1.05. In 6 starts he has allowed just 4 earned runs over 34.1 innings.

The Hanwha Eagles lost their most recent game on Sunday morning, 2-1 to the Kiwoom Heroes. They are now 24-51-1 on the season. The Eagles have lost 4 games in a row and still find themselves in last place in the league standings. They will counter with Yefry Ramirez, who is 0-1 and has an ERA of 3.68. In 2 starts he has allowed 3 earned runs over 7.1 innings.

Ramirez has a very little sample size this season, while Chang-Mo has shut down virtually every opponent he has faced. For that reason, backing the Dinos will be the play.

Kiwoom Heroes ML (-165) over Doosan Bears

The Kiwoom Heroes ended last week with a 2-1 win over the Hanwha Eagles. The Heroes are now 50-28-1 on the season. They are the hottest them in the KBO at the moment, having won 8 games in a row and are still in 2nd place by just 1.5 games. The Heroes will start An Woo-Jin, who is 9-4 and has an ERA of 2.17. In 15 starts he has allowed 23 earned runs over 95.1 innings.

The Doosan Bears were shut out by the KT Wiz 6-0 on Sunday morning. The Bears are now 32-41-2 in 2022. They have lost 4 games in a row and are in 8th place in the league standings. The Bears will counter with Lee Young-Ha, who is 6-4 and has an ERA of 4.13. In 15 starts he has allowed 37 earned runs over 80.2 innings.

The Heroes are red hot at the moment and there is no reason to fade them just yet. They have a clear edge in the starting pitching department as well, therefore backing the Heroes will be the play.

Extra KBO picks and predictions for Tuesday, July 5

Kia Tigers ML (-135) over KT Wiz

The Kia Tigers have managed to lose 7 games in a row, but look to be in a good spot on Tuesday morning They will start Yang Hyeon-Jong, who has an ERA of 2.72, while Odrisamer Despaigne has an ERA of 4.50 for the KT Wiz. For that reason, look for the Tigers to finally snap their losing streak with a win.

SSG Landers ML (-130) over Lotte Giants

The SSG Landers continue to sit atop the league standings, now having won 4 games in a row. The SSG Landers will start Oh Won-Seok, who has an ERA of 3.99. While that is average at best, his 1.42 ERA against the Giants gives his team the edge. For that reason, backing the SSG Landers will be the play.
