On Saturday, the Korean Baseball Organization features two great matchups when the second place Kiwoom Heroes look to bounce back with a victory after losing on Friday to keep pace with the first place NC Dinos, while third place LG Twins have a tough battle on their hands with fifth place Doosan, as the KBO enters its final quarter of the regular season.
Kiwoom Heroes at Samsung Lions: Kiwoom -130 ; O/U 11
The Kiwoom Heroes are in second place in the KBO just one game behind the first place NC Dinos, but are coming off a disappointing 2-0 loss at the hands of the last place Hanwha Eagles on Friday. Kiwoom looks to bounce back with a victory on the road Saturday against the Lions and will send Seung Ho Lee to the mound. The left-hander is 4-5 with an ERA of 4.91. Although Lee does not have the best record, the southpaw has allowed just five earned runs in the last three outings over a stretch of 17 innings and four of those five runs were in one game. Kiwoom uses a strong outing by Lee combined with good production at the plate from Ha Seong Kim to beat the Lions 7-3.
Free Betting Pick: Kiwoom Heroes -130
LG Twins at Doosan Bears: Doosan -155 ; O/U 10.5
The LG Twins are in third place in the KBO just three games behind the first place NC Dinos but are coming off a 5-3 loss on Friday to the Lotte Giants. Prior to the loss, LG had won two straight and was creeping back up two within two games of second place Kiwoom. On Saturday, against the Doosan Bears, LG will send Chen Gyu Lim to the mound. The right-hander is 9-6 with an ERA of 3.96 and will face Doosan’s Duk Joo Ham who is 4-1 with an ERA of 3.45. Lim was banged up by Doosan on August 30, pitching just three Innings while allowing three hits and two runs including a home run. Ham last faced LG on July 25 and pitched just one inning but did not allow a hit or any runs and in his last outing pitched 4+ innings allowing three runs on five hits. Expect plenty of runs for both teams as the starting pitchers are not performing up to par at this time and the batters will take advantage. Take the OVER to cash, Doosan wins 9-6
