Friday May 29th KBO Betting Guide

Series Shift for the Weekend in the Korean Baseball Organization

New series’ get underway for May 29th KBO betting headlined by a matchup of two of the top 4 teams in the league as LG visits Kia. The NC Dinos continue to lead the league at 17-3, powered by a 5-game win streak. Friday’s ESPN broadcast is a duel between KT and Kiwoom while we also have the two worst teams in Korean Baseball squaring off when Hanwha and SK lock horns.

Hanwha Eagles (+105) vs. SK Wyverns (-145) O9.5

It’s a battle of bottom feeders when 7-14 Hanwha visits 5-16 SK. The Wyverns are somewhat hefty favorites in May 29th KBO betting while being at home and because they come in having won 2 of their last 4. Hanwha on the other hand has now lost 5 in a row but against the top 2 teams in LG and NC.

There’s good value on the Eagles behind Kim Min-woo who has 3 ER total over his last three starts. SK’s Kim Tae-hoon is coming off a 4ER allowed performance last time out vs. Kia.
Pick: Hanwha +105
Update: SK 8 Hanwha 6

KT Wiz (+175) vs. Kiwoom Heroes (-240) O10.5 ESPN

It’s hard to lay the hefty -240 on Kiwoom considering they come into Friday’s games having dropped 4 in a row. The Heroes were just swept by NC while allowing a total of 26 runs. KT has a great ROI coming in on a 2-game win streak and with victories in 3 of 5.

The reason Kiwoom is such a big favorite in this one is because Eric Jokisch takes the hill with a 3-0 record and 1.17 ERA on the season. Jokisch has shut out opponents in 2 of the last 3. KT has won a couple in a row, and starter Kim Min has buckled down after allowing 7ER in the opener to just 4ER the last two.
Pick: Under 10.5
Update: KT 1 Kiwoom 5

May 29th KBO betting
Eric Jokisch is coming into his own in the 2020 season.

LG Twins (+120) vs. Kia Tigers (-170) O9.5

LG has rattled off 4 straight wins and is 7-3 over their last 10 but still can’t seem to make up much ground on NC who has won 5 in a row. The Twins won two in their series over Hanwha by the score of 3-0 and also had a dominating 15-4 victory. Kia has dropped 3 of their last 4 and was shut out on Tuesday.

LG’s Cha Woo-chan has 1/3 of the team’s 6 losses this season including in each of his last two starts. He’s opposed by Kia’s Aaron Brooks, the former Orioles pitcher who has allowed 7 ER in his last two starts. Hard not to like the Twins, even if the line seems a bit off.
Pick: LG Twins +120
Update: LG 6 Kia 2

Lotte Giants (+175) vs. Doosan Bears (-240) O10.5

The Lotte offense is in a funk right now, having scored just 5 total runs their last four games. Amazingly enough the Giants are still 2-2 over that span. Doosan comes into Friday’s tilt having won 4 of the last 6, but their potent offense has stalled a bit as well having been held to 6 runs or less in 4 straight. Not touching the -240 line, so total is the play.
Pick: Under 10.5
Update: Lotte 2 Doosan 4

NC Dinos (-285) vs. Samsung Lions (+200) O10.5

The 1st placed Dinos are set up for a lopsided series over the weekend against 8-13 Samsung. The Lions have won 2 in a row however, and held Lotte to just 3 total runs the last series. The Dinos have scored at least 7 runs in four straight however.

Drew Rucinski has allowed just 2ER total in his last two starts for the Dinos. He’s opposed by Kim Dae-woo on Friday, a Lions pitcher making his 2nd straight start after 6 appearances out of the bullpen.
Pick: Over 10.5
Update: NC 4 Samsung 5
