KBO picks and predictions

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

LG Twins ML (+122) vs Lotte Giants

A tie was the result for these teams on Tuesday, which only helped the Twins slightly. The KT Wiz lost, so the Twins gained a half game in the standings. They now trail 1st place by 3 games and have another great opportunity to win on Wednesday. The Twins will start Im Chan-Kyu, who is 1-7 on the season. His ERA is 3.77, though, which is respectable.

The Giants will counter with Dan Straily, who is 9-11 on the season and his ERA is more concerning at 4.25. The Giants are actually the favorite here, probably because Straily is a more known name. However, the Twins’ starter has been more consistent, even though his record does not reflect that. In a game that has importance for the standings, backing a Twins’ upset looks to be worth a play.

NC Dinos vs Kiwoom Heroes ML (+104)

The Kiwoom Heroes got an impressive win on Tuesday, beating this NC Dinos by a score of 13-2. It was a bad result for the Dinos, considering they had one of their best pitchers on the mound. The loss pushes the Dinos into 7th place and they trail 5th place by 1 game now. The Dinos will try to bounce back on Wednesday, as they start Wes Parsons. He is 3-6 on the season and has an ERA of 3.47.

With the win on Tuesday, the Heroes now find themselves in solo 5th place. They lead 6th place by a half games, so a win is crucial here. The Heroes will start An Woo-Jin, who is 5-8 on the season with an ERA of 3.41.

The Heroes have to be full of confidence after the offensive explosion on Tuesday. Their starter looks to be slightly better overall, but he has also been better when facing the Dinos compared to Parsons against the Heroes. For that reason, backing the Heroes as a small underdog will be the play.

KT Wiz vs Doosan Bears – Over 7.5 runs (-108)

The total is set pretty low here and looks to be a better play. Both pitchers have good numbers overall, but they have both struggled when facing each other. Bae Je-Seong is 0-2 against the Bears and has an ERA of 5.23. This is only over the span of 2 starts, but he has allowed 6 runs over 10.1 innings.

Ariel Miranda, on the other hand, is 1-1 against the KT Wiz and has an ERA of 4.19. This is over the span of 4 starts, during which he has allowed 9 runs in 19.1 innings. With a low total, and the fact that both starters have had struggles against their respective opponents, backing the over looks to be the best play here.

For those of you looking for bigger payouts, play the best bets as a 3-team parlay–which pays out at +772.
