KBO picks and predictions

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

SSG Landers vs Lotte Giants – Over 10 runs (-110)

With both starters having their struggles this season, runs should probably be expected. Sam Gaviglio is 1-0 against the Giants, but has an ERA of 4.63 against them. This is over the span of just 2 starts, but he has allowed 6 runs in 11.2 innings. He also has allowed at least 5 in 3 of his last 5 starts, to further show his struggles.

Lee Seung-Heon has also had his struggles when it comes to facing the SSG Landers. He is 0-1 against them and has an ERA of 3.38. This is over the span of just 1 start, in which he allowed 2 runs in 5.1 innings. While this is not terrible, he is still susceptible to allowing a big number.

Both offenses were able to have some success on Saturday, so with a lackluster pitching matchup, backing the over looks to be the best option.

LG Twins vs NC Dinos – Under 9 runs (-120)

The total has to be the better play here because of how each pitcher has performed against his opponent. Drew Rucinski has been elite against this Twins’ team. He is 1-1 against them, but has a miniscule ERA of 1.06. This is over the span of 3 starts, during which he has allowed just 2 runs in 17.0 innings.

Lee Min-Ho has also been solid against the Dinos, despite having just average numbers overall. He is 1-2 against the Dinos and has an ERA of 2.76. This is over the span of 3 starts, in which he has allowed 5 runs in 16.1 innings. The game on Saturday was very low scoring and a similar game should be expected here. Both starters have clearly had success against each other this season, so backing the under looks to be the best option.

Kiwoom Heroes vs Samsung Lions – Under 8 (-115)

The total is set pretty low, but the under still looks to be a solid play. Eric Jokisch is more than capable of limiting the Lions’ offense, despite the fact that they were able to score in both games on Saturday. He is 2-0 against the Lions and has an ERA of 1.29 against them. This is over the span of 2 starts, in which he has allowed 2 runs in 14.0 innings.

David Buchanan has had similar success against the Heroes, posting a record of 3-1 against them with an ERA of 2.74. This is over 4 starts, where he has allowed 7 runs in 23.0 innings. There was plenty of offense in the double-header on Saturday but both pitchers have been too strong to expect the same on Sunday. For that reason, the under will be the top play.

For those of you looking for bigger payouts, play the best bets as a 3-team parlay–which pays out at +554.
