KBO picks and predictions
Saturday’s five-game slate will feature some lopsided matchups that offer value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.
Kia Tigers Money Line (+102)
The Kia Tigers will be expected to start Drew Gagnon, who is 8-5 with an ERA of 4.42. Gagnon has not looked that good over his last five starts, allowing 16 runs over 27.2 innings. He has not been good against the NC Dinos, making three starts against them this season, allowing 10 runs over 17.0 innings.
The Dinos will start Min-hyuk Shin, who is 2-2 with an ERA of 6.41. He has just four starts this season, so he is still very inexperienced. As a starter, he has allowed 13 runs over 18.1 innings.
Gagnon might not be the greatest pitcher, but I do not think he should be an underdog to a guy who has a total of four starts this entire season. As mentioned, his last five starts have not been great, but his last two starts have been very good, having allowed four runs over 13.0 innings. As a result, I will back the Tigers as a small dog.
Lotte Giants/SK Wyverns Over 10.5 Runs (-110)
With two horrible pitchers here, I am going to look for runs here. The Giants are starting Adrian Sampson, who is 5-8 with an ERA of 5.84. He has allowed 14 runs over his last 25.0 innings, that being his last five starts. He has also been horrible against the Wyverns, going 0-1 against them over three starts, allowing 10 runs over 13.1 innings.
The Wyverns are starting Geon-wook Lee in this game, who is 5-6 with an ERA of 5.19. His last five starts have seen him allow 19 runs over his last 22.0 innings.
The Giants are scoring 9.7 runs per game over their last five game, while allowing 7.4 runs at the same time. Over the same stretch, the Wyverns are scoring 5.6 runs, allowing 8.6 runs, so the over would be my play.
Doosan Bears/Kiwoom Heroes Under 9.5 (+102)
Looking to back two great pitchers here, we will look for a low scoring game. The Doosan Bears will start Won-joon Choi, who is 9-0 with an ERA of 3.64. He has been very good recently, allowing eight runs over his last 28.0 innings. That being over his last five starts.
The Kiwoom Heroes will start their best pitcher, Eric Jokisch, who is 10-3 with an ERA of 2.29. His last five starts has seen him allow eight runs over his last 25.0 innings. That also being his last five starts.
The Doosan Bears have allowed just nine runs over their last five games, an average of 1.8 runs per game. As a result, I will back the under.
For those of you looking for bigger payouts, play the best bets as a three-team parlay, which pays +678.
