KBO picks and predictions
Wednesday’s 5-game slate will feature some lopsided matchups that offer value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.
NC Dinos vs SSG Landers – Over 9.5 Runs (-115)
The total should be much easier to call here as both teams look to take advantage of this pitching matchup. To further dive into Drew Rucinski’s struggles against the Landers, we see that he actually only has 1 start against them. In that lone start, he lasted just 4.0 innings, while allowing 7 runs. Choi Min-jun does not have much experience against the Dinos, but allowing 4 runs over 5.1 innings of relief is not great. Before the game was canceled on Tuesday, the game was 3-3 in the 3rd inning. This is the type of game to expect here as clearly both pitchers are struggling to find consistency. For that reason, backing the over will be the play.
LG Twins vs KT Wiz ML (-170)
The LG Twins will start Lee Min-ho in this game and he comes in with a record of 4-5 and his ERA is 4.55. He has no experience against the KT Wiz this season.
The KT Wiz will counter with Odrisamer Despaigne, who is 8-6 on the season and has an ERA of 2.89. He is 0-1 against the Twins this season, but his 2.57 ERA against proves he has been very good.
The pitching edge is clearly in favor of the KT Wiz, who have one of the best pitchers in the KBO. Despaigne’s success this season as a whole and against the Twins cannot be ignored, so backing the KT Wiz will be the play.
