Hanwha Eagles vs. SK Wyverns Odds
I have to say that I expected two easy wins for the Wyverns so far and the defeat against Hanwha in the opener was an absolute shocker. SK was one of the top teams in the country last year and is a contender for 2020 too.
At the same time, the Eagles struggled in the preseason and didn’t win a single match. The team wasn’t exactly stellar in the batting department in the first game of the regular season, but the pitchers held their opponents to zero runs.
That wasn’t the case in the second game, though, and SK looked much stronger. The Wyverns took an early lead and never looked back, closing the match by 5-2 with an inning to spare. That was a step in the right direction and I expect more of the same on Thursday.
Hanwha Eagles vs. SK Wyverns Prediction
The kick in the butt in the first match served as an awakening for the SK Wyverns and they were so much better in the second game. I expect the favorite to improve further and the third one should be an easy win.
The Eagles are bad in pretty much every aspect and their initial success had more to do with the opponent’s struggles than their own virtues.
