KBO Predictions and Analysis – Tuesday, June 22 (2021)

| June 21, 2021 10:11 am PDT

The top teams in South Korean baseball will return to action after taking a break on Monday, and we have a full round of fixtures on June 22.

There’s a slight chance of rain in two fixtures, but they should go as planned when it’s all said and done. With that in mind, here’s the complete list of games covered in my KBO predictions for Tuesday.

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

Samsung Lions to Beat Hanwha Eagles

The weather forecasts show an almost 50% chance of rain tomorrow, so this game could be postponed. However, if it does go through, it should be dominated by the starting pitchers.

Both sides are expected to send solid players, especially the Samsung Lions. David Buchanan has dominated the league with 8 wins from 10 starts and some of the best stats in the KBO.

The American should comfortably contain the mediocre offense of the opposition, and Samsung’s bullpen can finish the job.

Yun Dae-Kyung should keep the Eagles in the game early on, but he simply doesn’t have enough support, and I expect a win for the Lions on Tuesday.

KT Wiz Suwon to Beat Kia Tigers

This has to be one of the more one-sided encounters on the schedule. KT Wiz Suwon is still going strong overall, and the team currently sits second in the table, while the Tigers have been far from their best.

The favorite has the upper hand when it comes to the starting lineups too. Odrisamer Despaigne will be pitching, and despite some shaky moments recently, he remains one of the steady options on the squad.

Kia’s starter is not bad either, but I’m not sure he can stop a strong opponent like KT Wiz, and the bullpen of the team is one of the worst in the country too.

Suwon’s offense should be able to deliver enough runs to secure a victory in game one.

SSG Landers to Beat LG Twins

The Twins found their way to the top of the KBO table, but they start this week with a challenging series against the SSG Landers.

The leaders will have to initially rely on a guy who was demolished in both of his starts so far, and they already lost four times in six games against the same opponent.

The Landers are expected to start a decent pitcher, and they have been better offensively. That’s enough for me to back them in my KBO predictions for Tuesday, June 2.

Lotte Giants to Beat NC Dinos

The NC Dinos have to improve dramatically on the defensive end if they want to retain their KBO title.

At the moment, they are out of the playoff spots because they allow so many runs.

Unfortunately for them, I can see a similar problem against the Lotte Giants. Lee Jae-Hak is next in NC’s rotation, and his stats are abysmal.

The team’s bullpen has been shaky, too, and the H2H record against the Giants in 2021 has been pretty close.

Lotte has the better starting pitcher and looked decent last week, so I think that the underdog can get the job done in this clash.

Kiwoom Heroes to Beat Doosan Bears

I’m not a big fan of backing the Heroes in my daily KBO predictions because they have been very inconsistent this season, but I feel obliged to pick them this time around.

The squad already has four wins from six games against the Bears, and another one is on the cards, based on the latest team news.

Doosan is going to struggle defensively with Lee Young-Ha at the helm. The youngster has a 10.44 ERA after five starts, and I simply don’t trust him.

The Heroes have the advantage here, with Han Hyun-Hee getting the nod for them. The guy has excellent stats and beat the Bears once already, so I expect the same on Tuesday.
