KBO picks and predictions
Wednesday’s slate features plenty of opportunities for value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.
Lotte Giants vs Hanwha Eagles – Over 7.5 runs (-126)
The total could actually be the better play here because while Charlie Barnes has a low ERA, he has not been as solid over his last couple of starts. He has allowed at least 3 runs in each of his last 5 starts, which is not normal for him. His 1 start against Hanwha was a shutout over 6.0 innings, however. The Eagles’ offense has been able to score runs recently, they just have not been able to stop anybody else from scoring.
On the other side, Yun Dae-Kyung has allowed at least 6 runs in 5 starts this season. He has had 2 solid starts in a row, but his track record against the Giants would suggest he will go back to being mediocre at best on Tuesday. In 2 starts against the Giants Dae-Kyung has allowed 9 earned runs over 11.2 innings. With both offenses having had success to end the week, expect there to be more runs score here on Wednesday. The Eagles are likely not going to score 11 runs against Barnes, but if they score just a few early on and get a few more against an average Giants’ bullpen, the over will be in range. For that reason backing the over will be the play.
SSG Landers vs KT Wiz ML (-118)
The SSG Landers were unable to start their week with a win, losing to the KT Wiz by a score of 5-4 on Tuesday morning. They are now 39-21-3 on the season, but are still in 1st place. Though the loss on Tuesday has made their lead on 1st place just 2.5 games with the Kiwoom Heroes winning their game on Tuesday. The SSG Landers will hope to quickly bounce back on Wednesday as they will start Ivan Nova. He is 3-3 on the season and has an ERA of 5.93. In 11 starts this season, he has allowed 40 earned runs over 60.2 innings.
With the win on Tuesday, the KT Wiz are now 29-31-2 on the season. They are now 5th place in the standings and are inching closer to .500 on the season. They will counter with Um Sang-Back, who is 5-2 on the season and has an ERA of 3.70. In 14 appearances this season (9 starts), he has allowed 23 earned runs over 56.0 innings.
As good as the SSG Landers have been this season, this is a spot where fading them looks to be the smart play. Nova has been inconsistent all season, so for that reason, backing the KT Wiz to win their 2nd game in a row will be the play.
Doosan Bears vs Kiwoom Heroes – Under 8.5 runs (-122)
The total looks to be the better play here because despite both starters having just average ERAs, they both have fared well against each other’s teams. Tyler Eppler has 2 starts against the Bears this season, where he is 1-1 and has an ERA of 3.00. In his 2 starts, he has allowed 4 earned runs over 12.0 innings. Overall, Eppler has allowed more than 4 runs in just 3 starts as well, and even though 2 of those starts were recent, his success against the Bears should be enough to keep them in check.
As for Lee Young-Ha, he has 2 starts against the Heroes, is 2-0 against them and has an ERA of 0.71. In his 2 starts, he has allowed just 1 earned run over 12.2 innings. Overall, he does have 4 starts of allowing 5 runs or more, in 3 of his last 4 starts, he has allowed 3 runs or less. With his success against the Heroes, backing the under looks to be worth a play.
Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +502.
Extra KBO picks and predictions for Wednesday, June 15
Kia Tigers ML (-136) vs NC Dinos
Both starting pitchers have had their struggles this season, but Lee Jae-Hak for the NC Dinos has been far worse. He is 0-6 on the season, therefore fading him and backing the Tigers will be the play.
Samsung Lions vs LG Twins ML (-198)
There is not much advantage for either side either as both starters have an ERA over 4.50. Though Lee Min-Ho for the Twins is 2-0 against the Lions this season and has not allowed an earned run over 11.1 innings. For that reason, backing the Twins will be the play.
