With the KBO season winding down the playoff pitcure is beginning to clear itself up, however, there are 5 teams within 4 games of the final two playoff spots. With two of those teams meeting up today, one team is giving a ton of value as a small favorite. Two surging offenses also meet up, so here are the best bets for 9/17/20 in the KBO:
Doosan Bears vs KT Wiz
The Doosan Bears are coming off a grueling series with the Dleague leading Dinos where they dropped the last game of the series 5-3; dropping them to a tie with the KT Wiz for the last two playoff spots. The Wiz had an offensive explosion of 11 runs to beat the Lions and are looking to continue that trend with a big series with the Bears starting today. With a solid pitcher in William Cuevas taking the mound who is 7-6 with a 4.15 ERA on the season, the Bears have yet to see him this season. Doosan will send out Yu Hui-kwan (8-8, 5.14 ERA) and has struggled against the Wiz this season, coming in with a 6.32 ERA on the year.
The Wiz are seeing the ball great at the plate right now and build off their 11 run win last night, beating up on Hui-kwan who has struggled with the Wiz all season.

Lotte Giants vs LG Twins
Both the Giants and Twins are coming off of decisive wins last night. The Giants are coming off of a huge win over the Heroes and the Twins beating up on the league worst Hanwha Eagles. This will be a matchup of two solid pitchers with the Twins sending out Tyler Wilson (8-7; 4.50 ERA) and the Giants starting (7-4; 4.73 ERA). Both offenses have been solid as of late and with two solid pitchers taking the mound, I like these offenses to explode for runs. The Giants totals have gone over in six of their last ten and Twins totals have gone over in three of their last four games. Both of the offenses find runs and this total goes over.
