KBO picks and predictions

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

Kia Tigers ML (-160) over KT Wiz

The KT Wiz and Kia Tigers had their game canceled on Tuesday morning due to rain, so they will look to get this series started on Wednesday morning. The KT Wiz come into this game having most recently beat the Doosan Bears on Sunday by a score of 6-0. They are now 39-37-2 on the season. The KT Wiz have won 4 games in a row and are 4th place in the league standings. They will start Odrisamer Despaigne on Wednesday morning, who is 4-8 on the season and has an ERA of 4.50. In 16 starts this season, he has allowed 45 earned runs over 90.0 innings.

The Kia Tigers ended last week with a loss to the SSG Landers, losing by a score of 3-2. They are now 38-38-1 on the season. The Tigers have lost 7 games in a row and find themselves in 5th place in the standings. The Tigers will counter with Yang Hyeon-Jong, who is 7-3 on the season and has an ERA of 2.72. In 16 starts this season, he has allowed 29 earned runs over 96.0 innings.

Despaigne has been quite inconsistent this season, while Hyeon-Jong has put together solid starts for majority of the year. Even though the Tigers are in the midst of a long losing streak, backing them to win behind a better starting pitcher looks to be the play for Wednesday morning.

SSG Landers ML (-128) over Lotte Giants

The SSG Landers picked up another win on Tuesday, beating the Lotte Giants by a score of 4-3. They are now 51-25-3 on the season. They have won 5 games in a row and continue to hold the top spot in the league standings by 1.5 games. The SSG Landers will start Noh Kyung-Eun on Wednesday morning, who is 4-2 on the season and has an ERA of 2.17. In 6 starts this season, Kyung-Eun has allowed 7 earned runs in 29.0 innings.

With the loss on Tuesday, the Giants are now 33-41-3. They have lost 2 games in a row and are sitting in 7th place in the league standings. The Giants will counter with Lee In-Bok, who is 7-7 on the season and has an ERA of 3.83. In 16 appearances this season (14 starts), he has allowed 35 earned runs over 82.1 innings.

The SSG Landers have won 5 games in a row and they are still just the 2nd hottest team in the KBO right now. Regardless, they have the edge in starting pitching, therefore backing the SSG Landers to continue their winning streak will be the play.

Kiwoom ML (-162) over Doosan Bears

The Kiwoom Heroes picked up another win on Tuesday, beating the Doosan Bears by a score of 4-3. They are now 51-28-1 on the season. The Heroes have won 9 games in a row, but still trail the SSG Landers by 1.5 games for 1st place in the league standings. They will start Eric Jokisch on Wednesday, who is 7-4 on the season and has an ERA of 2.48. In 15 starts this season, he has allowed 26 earned runs over 94.1 innings.

With the loss on Tuesday, the Bears are now 32-42-2 on the season. They have lost 5 games in a row and are currently in 8th place in the league standings. The Bears will counter with Gwak Been on Wednesday, who is 3-7 on the season and has an ERA of 4.20. In 14 starts this season, he has allowed 33 earned runs over 70.2 innings.

The Heroes continue to win, so continuing to back them looks to be the way to go. They once again have the pitching advantage in this game, therefore backing the Heroes to make in 10 wins in a row will be the play.

Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +368.

Extra KBO picks and predictions for Wednesday, July 6

NC Dinos vs Hanwha Eagles – Over 9.5 runs (+104)

There was just 1 run scored on Tuesday, but should be plenty scored in Wednesday’s game. Both starters have an ERA over 4.00 and they both have an ERA north of 6.00 when facing each other’s teams. For that reason, backing the over looks to be worth a small play.

Samsung ML (+136) over LG Twins

The Samsung Lions have lost 4 games in a row, but look to have the advantage on Wednesday. Won Tae-In has an ERA of 3.43, while Lee Min-Ho has an ERA of 4.41 for the LG Twins. For that reason, backing the Lions to snap their losing streak will be the play.
