Korean Baseball Best Bets 7/29/23 - KBO Picks & Predictions
Friday was an interesting day in the KBO with all the games getting squeezed in, but we ended up hitting at 1-1 mark. On Saturday the weekend series are going to continue in the KBO and should have plenty of action for everyone to find a good game. In our case here, we have 2 games that are the best bets for the KBO. The first one is going to feature a cloudy KT Wiz vs NC Dinos, but the second is going to have the LG Twins taking on the Doosan Bears.
KT Wiz vs NC Dinos, KT -138 ; O/U 9.5
The Wiz are coming in after crushing the Dinos by a score of 10-2. The Wiz are now sitting on a record of 42-43-2 on the year. KT has managed to hit at a clip of .266 with 47 homers, but have a team ERA of 4.33. The Wiz are putting Bae Je-seong on the mound and he is 3-6 with a 4.32 ERA. The Dinos are coming in with a 43-40-1 record. NC hits at a clip of .267 with 58 homers, but has managed to get a 3.72 ERA. The Dinos are putting Jung Ku-bum on the mound and this year Ku-bum has posted a 0-0 record with a 9.00 ERA. In this game the over should be strongly considered as neither starter is that good and against NC before Bae has posted an 0-0 record with a 12.27 ERA.
KBO Free Pick: Over 9.5
LG Twins vs Doosan Bears, KIA -128 ; O/U 8.5
In the opening game of the series the Twins were able to crush the Bears by a score of 9-2. The win moved LG to a record of 51-33-2 on the year. The Twins are hitting at a clip of .284 with 47 homers, but has a 3.63 ERA. The LG team is putting Lee Ji-gang on the mound and he has struggled on the year and is 9-3 with a 4.55 ERA. The Doosan team is hitting at a clip of .255 with 60 homers, but has a 4.00 ERA. The Bears are putting Kim Dong-ju on the mound and this year he has done decent at times, but lacks some run support with a 2-4 record and a 3.31 ERA. Kim does not go deep in the games and that will pose problems for Doosan whose bullpen has been shaky at times and that allows the LG team to play a lot of small ball and secure the win in this game.
KBO Free Pick: LG Twins -128
