The KBO had a limited number of games played on Thursday, but still got all the games in. That sets up a great weekend number of games to provide the bettors a great option for the best bets in the KBO for Friday.
NC Dinos vs Doosan Bears, DOO -140 ; O/U 8.5
The Dinos are coming here with a 60-61-7 record, but sitting 10.5 games out of first. The Bears are coming in with a 64-60-5 record and are sitting 8 games out of first place. The Dinos are hitting at a clip of .262 with 158 homers, but have a 4.59 ERA. The Bears are hitting at a clip of .270 with 101 homers and a 4.27 ERA. The game here has a total of 8.5 and both of these offenses hitting good and the starters coming in with an ERA north of the 4.5 mark make me think this game is going to hit the over.
KBO Free Pick: Over 8.5
Samsung Lions vs Kiwoom Heroes, KIW -121 ; O/U 9.5
The Lions are tied for second place and are sitting on a 70-55-8 record and only 2.5 games out of first place. The Heroes are sitting on a 63-62-6 record and are 9.5 games out of the first place mark. The Heroes are hitting at a clip of .258 with 85 homers, but have a 4.30 ERA. The Lions have a .268 average and a total of 124 homers, but have a 4.37 ERA. Now, just like the game above the pitching in this game has both starters coming in with an ERA north of the 4 mark and that will definitely make it easier to see this game hitting the over as well.
KBO Free Pick: Over 9.5
