KBO picks and predictions
Friday’s five-game slate will feature some lopsided matchups that offer value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.
Kia Tigers/Samsung Lions Under 10.5 Runs (-130)
The Tigers will start Drew Gagnon in this spot, who is 9-5 with an ERA of 4.23. Ben Lively will be his opponent, who is 4-7 with an ERA of 4.37. These numbers are clearly not great, but when digging deeper, the under looks like a decent play. Gagnon is 3-1 in his last four starts, allowing 11 runs over 24.2 runs. Lively has also been solid over the same stretch, allowing seven runs over his last 24.2 innings.
Lotte Giants/LG Twins Over 9.5 Runs (+102)
The Giants will look to turn things around on Friday as Adrian Sampson is set to take the mound. He has really not been impressive this season. Actually, it would be fair to say he has been quite bad. Sampson is 5-9 on the year with an ERA of 5.47. Sampson is 0-3 against the Twins this season over three starts, having allowed 14 runs over 15.2 innings.
On the other side will be Chan-heon Jung, for the LG Twins. He is 6-3 on the season with an ERA of 3.84. His last five starts have not been as good, allowing 15 runs over his last 27.0 innings. That gives him an ERA of 5.00.
The over is now 4-1 in their last five head to head meetings, 4-1 in the last five games for the Twins and 3-0 in the last three games for the Giants.
Doosan Bears/KT Wiz Under 10.5 Runs (-108)
I will be looking for a pitchers duel here as Won-joon Choi makes the start for the Doosan Bears and Hyeong-jun So will be on the mound for the KT Wiz. Choi is 9-1 this season with an ERA of 3.61. He has been fantastic over his last five starts, posting an ERA of 1.88, allowing six runs over his last 28.2 innings. So on the other hand, has also looked solid over his own last five starts, posting an ERA of 2.96. He has allowed nine runs over his last 27.1 innings pitched. The under is 4-1 in the last five head to head meetings and 4-1 in both Doosan and KT Wiz’s last five games overall. I will look for both pitchers to excel here and will back a low scoring game.
For those of you looking for bigger payouts, play the best bets as a three-team parlay, which pays +580.
