The Line: Samsung Lions +110 / KT Wiz Suwon -140 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Samsung Lions vs. KT Wiz Suwon face off in a KBO baseball showdown early on Friday morning for everyone in the United States. Like the games before this one, there will be no fans in the game for this showdown.
The Samsung Lions have won two games in a row, but they have had some struggles this season so far winning only four of the nine games.
The biggest issue for the Lions so far this year has been the inconsistency with the offense. Each of the last two games they have scored at least five runs, but in the two games before that they had scored only five runs total.
The Samsung Lions are led by Dong-yeop Kim who has hit two home runs and eight RBI’s. Sung’gyu Lee has also hit two home runs and six RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the KT Wiz Suwon who have really struggled this season. KT Wiz Suwon has lost four games in a row, and seven of their last eight games. Three of their last four games. KT Wiz Suwon have lost by only one run, but they haven’t been able to get the job done late in games to come away with a win.
On offense, KT Wiz Suwon has had a lot of success hitting the ball out of the ballpark. They are led by Baek-ho Kang who has hit three home runs and four RBI’s. Sung-woo Jang has hit two home runs and 11 RBI’s.
The Samsung Lions will send out Tae-in Won to the mound while Hyeong-jun So will go for KT Wiz Suwon. Won went six innings giving up only two runs in his first start, while So gave up two runs in five innings in his first start.
There is a chance for light rain early in this game, with winds blowing at 10-12 MPH coming in from left field.
These are two pitchers who were good to start the season and it will happen in this game. Look for a pitching duel with both of these pitchers going deep in the game. This game will stay well under the posted total.
