KBO picks and predictions

Wednesday’s five-game slate will feature some lopsided matchups that offer value. Let’s dive into the day’s best bets.

Lotte Giants Money Line (-122)

We will be looking to back one of the best pitchers in the KBO here, as the Lotte Giants will start Dan Straily. He is 10-4 on the season with an ERA of 2.82. This line is probably where it is because his last start saw him allow seven runs to the Samsung Lions over 6.0 innings. Straily has been dominant against the Heroes this season, allowing two runs over 15.0 innings against them.

Starting for the Kiwoom Heroes will be Hyun-hee Han. He is much more inconsistent, posting a record of 6-8 with an ERA of 5.59. In one start against the Giants, Han allowed five runs over 6.2 innings. I trust Straily much more in this spot, so I will back Lotte here.

Hanwha Eagles +4.5 Run Line (-200)

The Twins will send Casey Kelly in this spot, one of their better pitchers. Kelly is 9-7 this season with an ERA of 3.70. He has really put things together over his last seven starts, posting a record of 5-2 with an ERA of 2.00. He has allowed 10 runs over 45.0 innings during this stretch.

The Eagles will counter in this game with Jin-wook Kim. Overall, Kim is 2-2 on the season with an ERA of 4.11. Though, he mainly comes out of the bullpen, so in his three starts, he is 1-1 with a 3.14 ERA. Kim has not fared as well against the Twins, allowing three runs over 5.2 innings against them.

Kelly has obviously turned it on recently, so the only way I can look is to a LG Twins win. However, their money line is far too high and I am seeing a +4.5 runs spread at FanDuel. As a result, I will lean to Hanwha +4.5 runs because that is far too many to ask the Twins to cover.

Doosan Bears Money Line (-152)

We are going back to the Doosan Bears as they have a clear advantage in pitching. The Bears will start Chris Flexen, who is 4-3 with an ERA of 3.76. In two starts against the NC Dinos, Flexen has allowed four runs over 13.0 innings, giving him an ERA of 2.77. His last three starts overall have seen him pitch very well, allowing two runs over his last 11.0 innings.

His mound opponent will be Young-gyu Kim for the NC Dinos, who has been a disaster to put it mildly. He is 0-1 but has an ERA of 7.02. His one appearance against the Bears came in relief, but he still allowed seven runs in 1.0 inning to give him an ERA of 63.00.

For those of you looking for bigger payouts, play the best bets as a three-team parlay, which pays +352.
