The KBO is going to start their weekend series on Friday. The games are definitely going to provide a lot of action for the fans, but it also makes it easier for you to find the best bets. Look here at the best bets for the KBO on Friday 8/20/21. 

Hanwha Eagles vs Doosan Bears, DOO -333 ; O/U 8.5 

Hanwha is coming to the game here after getting an 11-3 loss handed to them in their last game by Samsung. The loss dropped Hanwha to a 30-54-3 record. The Doosan team is coming in after playing to a 5-5 tie against KIA. The Bears are sitting on a 38-42-1 record on the year so far. This year the Eagles have ended up with a .232 average and a total of 48 homers, but have posted a 4.83 ERA on the year. The Bears are hitting at a clip of .274 on the year and have ended up with 72 homers. The Bears have managed to get a 4.53 ERA on the season so far. In this game here look for the Bears to do better in the game with a more powerful offense and a pitching staff that is doing slightly better and that allows the Bears to secure the win in this game here, but look for the game to go on the under as both pitching staffs are decent.

KBO Free Pick: Under 8.5

 

KT Wiz vs Lotte Giants, LOT -181  ; O/U 9.5

The Wiz are coming here after losing in their last game to the Twins by a 1-0 score. The Wiz did not lose their first place sitting with a 49-34-1 record. This year the Wiz are hitting at a clip of .267 with 67 homers, but have ended up with a 4.07 ERA as a team. The Giants in their last game on the field ended up being rained out. Lotte is coming in with a 38-46-1 record on the year so far. On the season the Giants have ended up hitting at a clip of .272 with a total of 70 homers and have managed to do good on the pitching side of the ball with a 5.34 ERA on the year. In the game Lotte is favored, but that stems from the fact that the Giants are putting the better pitcher on the mound. Those factors could help the Giants out, but Um Sang-back is a good pitcher and while not having any wins or losses on the year does have the better ERA overall at 3.60 on the season and even without a record that makes it easier for the Wiz to get the win here.
