Doosan Bears vs. KT Wiz Suwon – KBO Playoffs, Tuesday, November 10, 2020
The opening clash between the Doosan Bears and KT Wiz Suwon was tight. The first sevens saw zero runs, but the defending champions kept their composure to win 3-2 at the end.
The expectations are for another close game on Tuesday and I share my thoughts on the second fixture of the series in this Doosan Bears vs. KT Wiz Suwon betting preview. The post includes the latest odds and lines, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

Doosan Bears Team Analysis
Once the KBO playoffs started, Doosan’s experience and killer mentality from last year instantly kicked in. The champions have won all three games so far and they were all tight.
The pitchers held the fort and the offense delivered when it mattered the most. The Bears need to continue on the same path if they want to defend their title, but it’s going to be hard.
Lee Young-ha is expected to start the second clash against KT Wiz Suwon and he hasn’t been consistent this season. The pitcher lost 11 games from 16 starts in the regular season, recording a 4.64 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP in the process.
The offense will have to show up and support him, or KT Wiz could easily gain an advantage early on and win Tuesday’s encounter.
KT Wiz Suwon Team Analysis
I’m sure that KT Wiz Suwon will be extremely disappointed by the first game of the series. The team fought hard and had chances to win, but lost it at the end. I’m not sure it will be much easier in the second, especially when I look at the starting pitcher.
Odrisamer Despaigne will get the nod for Suwon and his stats for the season as a whole looks solid, but a close look suggests he might struggle. The Cuban was destroyed in October and has a 5.56 ERA over that period, despite facing some of the worst KBO teams.
The offense of the Bears can certainly punish Despaigne, so Suwon’s batters need to fight back and win the game.
Bears vs. Suwon Betting Pick
Both sides are starting pitchers that can’t be trusted too much, so the second game of the series between the Doosan Bears and KT Wiz Suwon could be a massacre. I expect plenty of runs and the odds of -110 for over 9.5 looks like the best betting pick for this clash.
