KBO Predictions and Analysis – Thursday, July 1 (2021)

| June 30, 2021 9:31 am PDT

The weather caused more postponements on Wednesday, but it looks like we’ll finally have a complete round of games in South Korean baseball on Thursday.

That opens the door to good KBO betting opportunities, and I share my KBO predictions for July 1 to help you uncover them.

Here’s a complete list of the fixtures I’ve included here.

  • KT Wiz Suwon vs. LG Twins
  • Lotte Giants vs. Kiwoom Heroes
  • NC Dinos vs. Kia Tigers
  • Doosan Bears vs. Hanwha Eagles
  • Samsung Lions vs. SSG Landers

KT Wiz Suwon to Beat LG Twins

The KBO leaders KT Wiz Suwon managed to beat the Twins in a close game on Wednesday, and it’s interesting to see if that affects how both sides approach the next clash.

Suwon should have the momentum, and the team news is also in favor of the squad. Bae Je-Seong is getting the nod, and he has solid stats so far in 2021, while the Twins are sending Im Chan-Kyu, who’s been shaky.

I think KT Wiz should win this one, but it must be mentioned that their starter had his worst game of the season when he met the Twins earlier this year. That’s why you should be careful with this encounter.

Kiwoom Heroes to Beat Lotte Giants

I’m not sure why the Kiwoom Heroes have been so slow this week, but they almost lost the second game against the Giants too. The team suffered from another horrible opening inning and barely managed to turn it around.

Starting pitcher Jake Brigham should be able to bring some stability to Kiwoom’s performance, but you never know with this team.

Both sides will be using decent players in this position, but the Heroes have the upper hand when it comes to scoring runs. Unless their defense collapses completely once again, the third game against the Giants should be easier.

NC Dinos to Beat Kia Tigers

The second game between the NC Dinos and the Kia Tigers was postponed, but the teams should return on Thursday. The reigning champions will be eager to continue their winning run, and they have all the means to achieve that.

NC’s starting pitcher is not the best, and the opposition has a slight advantage in this area, but the Dinos are so much stronger offensively, and they have the better bullpen.

The team can certainly score a ton of runs and make up for any defensive mistakes unless there are too many of them. The game could be close early on, but I think that the Dinos will eventually prevail and prefer them for my KBO predictions for Thursday.

Doosan Bears to Beat Hanwha Eagles

Wednesday’s encounter between the Doosan Bears and the Hanwha Eagles was much closer than it should have been. The score was 4-3 in favor of the underdog entering the last inning, and the Bears had to explode to win. Their offense delivered, and I think this was Hanwha’s best chance to beat them.

The next game should be much harder for the Eagles based on the team news.

Jang Si-Hwan is expected to start for the underdog, and he’s yet to register a victory after seven attempts. In comparison, Ariel Miranda has a 6-3 record leading the Bears and excellent stats.

The difference is way too big, and I certainly expect a win for the Bears in this one.

SSG Landers to Beat Samsung Lions

I must admit that I keep underestimating the SSG Landers. The team earned another important victory in the previous round and made the Lions look bad defensively once again.

That happened with a solid starting pitcher, and Samsung won’t have such a luxury in the next clash. Kim Dae-Woo is going to start, and he’s lost both of his games in 2021.

On the bright side for the Lions, the Landers are sending a guy with a 9.45 ERA. I don’t trust any of the sides from a defensive standpoint, and we could see a lot of runs in this one.

The Landers have been more prolific lately, and they have a good H2H record against the Lions, so another victory for them is the sensible prediction.
