KBO picks and predictions

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

Hanwha Eagles +1.5 (-120) vs LG Twins

The Eagles will start Ryan Carpenter to open the series against the Twins. He has actually been pretty solid, posting a record of 5-9, though his ERA is 3.21. The Twins will counter with Casey Kelly, who has a record of 8-5 with an ERA of 3.16. Even with a decent ERA, Kelly has endured plenty of struggles against the Eagles.

This matchup is much more even than most might think, considering that Carpenter has been solid. The Twins have lost 4 games in a row, so backing them at a huge price is not appealing. We are still talking about Hanwha, so just backing them to cover the run line will be the play.

Kia Tigers vs Kiwoom Heroes -1.5 (-125)

The Tigers will begin a series with the Kiwoom Heroes and must start picking up wins. The Tigers will start Kim Hyeon-Su, who has had his fair share of struggles. Hyeon-Su has a record of 1-3 and his ERA is 7.79. The Heroes will start Jeong Chan-Heon to begin this series, and his season has been going well. He is 7-2 on the year and has an ERA of 3.22.

Even though the Heroes are coming off a beating to Doosan, they look to be the play here. They have a clear advantage on the mound, while the Tigers have still lost 3 of their last 4 games. The money line is still too high on the Heroes, so backing them to win on the run line will be the play.

Doosan Bears vs NC Dinos – Under 10 Runs (-110)

The total could be the better play here, despite the struggles of Shin Min-Hyeok. Over 3 starts against the Bears, he has allowed 5 earned runs over 12.0 innings. This gives him an ERA of 3.75 against Doosan. Choi Won-Joon has been solid overall this season, as well as against the Dinos. In 3 starts against NC, Won-Joon has allowed 6 earned runs over 17.1 innings. This translates to an ERA of 3.12 and suggests that he will perform well here.

With two decent pitchers, this total just looks too high. They are sure to give up a couple runs, but backing the total to stay under 10 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 +530.
