KBO picks and predictions

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

Hanwha Eagles vs KT Wiz – Under 8.5 runs (+108)

The total looks to be the better play here because of the solid form each starter has been showing recently. Jang Min-Je has allowed 4 or more runs in just 3 starts this season. In his last 5 starts, he has allowed 7 runs (6 earned) over 26.1 innings. In 3 appearances against the KT Wiz (1 start), Min-Je has not allowed a run over 6.1 innings.

On the other side, Um Sang-Back has allowed 4 or more runs in 3 starts this season. In his last 5 appearances, he has allowed 5 runs (3 earned) over 13.0 innings. With plenty of solid recent results recently for both starters and the fact that neither offense has been consistent this season, backing the under will be the play for Sunday morning.

Kia Tigers ML (-134) over Doosan Bears

The Doosan Bears beat the Kia Tigers on Saturday morning by a score of 7-4. The Bears are now 43-50-2 on the season and are still in 6th place in the league standings. They will start Gwak Been on Sunday morning, who is 3-7 on the season and has an ERA of 4.43. In 17 starts this season, he has allowed 41 earned runs over 83.1 innings.

With the loss on Saturday, the Tigers are now 48-48-1 on the season. They have lost 3 games in a row and remain in 5th place in the league standings, but the gap between them and the Bears is shrinking. They will counter with Sean Nolin, who is 2-5 on the season and has an ERA of 3.54. In 10 starts this season, he has allowed 21 earned runs over 53.1 innings.

Even though the Tigers have lost 3 games in a row, they have the better and more consistent starting pitcher on Sunday. For that reason, backing the Tigers will be the play to win on Sunday.

LG Twins ML (-205) over Kiwoom Heroes

The LG Twins crushed the Kiwoom Heroes on Saturday morning, beating them by a score of 12-3. The Twins are now 58-38-1 on the season and are back in 2nd place in the league standings. They will start Adam Plutko on Saturday morning, who is 10-4 on the season and has an ERA of 2.70. In 19 starts this season, he has allowed 36 earned runs over 120.0 innings.

With the loss on Saturday, the Heroes are now 59-39-2 on the season and have slipped back into 3rd place in the league standings. The Heroes will counter with Tyler Eppler on Sunday morning, who is 4-6 on the season and has an ERA of 4.22. In 21 appearances this season (17 starts), he has allowed 45 earned runs over 96.0 innings.

The Twins look to be in a great spot to build off their win on Saturday win with a much better starting pitcher taking the mound on Sunday. For that reason, backing the Twins will be the play.

Looking for a bigger payout? Play these picks as a 3-team parlay with odds of +440.

Lotte Giants ML (-110) over NC Dinos

The NC Dinos blew out the Lotte Giants on Saturday morning, beating them by a score of 10-1. They will start Kim Tae-Gyeong, who has an ERA of 4.73. The Giants will counter with Lee In-Bok, who has an ERA of 3.73. Because In-Bok has been slightly more consistent, backing the Giants will be the play.
