The Line: Lotte +123, KT Wiz -143 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Lotte Giants and KT Wiz Suwon face off in their third game of the KBO Baseball season early on Thursday morning.
The Lotte Giants offense has been impressive to start the season winning each of the first two games. This is a good start for the Giants, which is even more impressive after considering they lost the last eight games of last season.
After scoring seven runs in the first game of the season, the Lotte Giants continued their impressive offensive output scoring nine runs in the second game. Byung-hun Min didn’t drive in any runs in the last game, but he had four hits and three runs. Hoon Jung hit one long ball and drove in three runs in the process.
Starting pitcher Jun-won Seo went six innings giving up only five hits and one unearned run. The bullpen did struggle a bit for the Giants and is going to need to be better in this game if they want to win this one.
The KT Wiz Suwon have struggled to start the season losing each of their first two games. The offense has scored only six runs total the first two games, but the real big issues have been with the pitching staff. In the last game for KT Wiz Suwon it was William Cuevas who let the team down in a big way. He went five innings giving up six hits and six earned runs. The only real bright spot for Cuevas was that he didn’t walk anyone.
Se-Wong Park is scheduled to toe the rubber for the Lotte Giants, while Je-seong Bae is scheduled to go for KT Wiz Suwon.
Starting the season with three straight wins is going to happen for the Lotte Giants. KT Wiz Suwon’s pitching staff isn’t great and that is going to let them down again in this one. Look for the Lotte Giants to run up the score and that will be the difference. Back the Giants to win this game on the money line.
