KBO Picks 7-8
KBO Picks 7-8 went 2-1 for a profitable day after the bad beat that we took yesterday. Always sucks having a (-1.5), being up 5-1 going into the bottom of the 9th, and only winning 5-4. We bounced back with two very good wins today that were high percentage plays and good value. Let’s take a look back at the picks and analysis.
KT Wiz (-140)
KT Wiz (-140) – Odrisamer Despaigne will pitch for the Wiz and he pitched 8 scoreless innings in a 5-0 win the last time he faced the Kia Tigers. He’s also coming off of a very strong outing the last time out where he only allowed 1 run over 7 innings against the Kiwoom Heroes. Min-woo Lee takes the mound for the Tigers and the Wiz C L O B B E R E D him last time they faced him for 8 runs in 3.1 innings. The Wiz won that game 13-8. Good value for a great matchup here.
KBO Final Score KT Wiz 7 Kia Tigers 4
The Wiz bats got to Min-woo Lee again and although it wasn’t as much of a pounding as last time, 4 runs in 5 innings is still a pounding. The Wiz had control of this game from the 2nd inning on. Despaigne put together another good start and only allowed 3 runs over 6.2 innings. Sung-woo Jang hit a BOMB to left center in the top of the 9th to give us a nice insurance run and Jae-yoon Kim got the save.
Hanwha Eagles Team Total Under (3.5)
Hanwha Eagles Under (3.5) – Can we get a complete game no hitter from Dan Straily? Maybe. Just because the guy doesn’t get wins doesn’t mean that he doesn’t pitch gems. He’s 0-1 against the Hanwha Eagles this year but he only gave up 2 runs in that game and lost 2-1. Staily has gone 7 innings or longer in 4 out of his last 5 starts so that limits the bullpen risk that we all know so well in the KBO.
Another nice stat is that the Eagles have struggled against the Giants this season (well all teams not just the Giants) and have gone under 3.5 runs in 5 of their 7 head to head matchups this season. I’d love to see Straily go out and throw a complete game no hitter. He’s allowed 3 or less hits in 2 out of his last 4 starts. Hanwha Eagles team total under 3.5 looks good here.
KBO Final Score Lotte Giants 6 Hanwha Eagles 2
Well Dan Straily didn’t toss a no hitter like we were hoping for and thought was quite possible against this weak lineup. However, he still pitched 7 innings and only allowed 4 hits and no runs. Of course the fingers were crossed when the bullpen came in and gave up 2 in the 8th but they were able to close this one out for another good win for us!
