KBO Predictions and Analysis – Wednesday, June 30 (2021)

| June 29, 2021 11:55 am PDT

Two South Korean baseball games were postponed because of the weather in the previous round. However, the early forecasts show mostly sun on Wednesday, so the next round should be normal. We’ll even have the fixtures that were scheduled for Tuesday for a total of seven encounters.

I cover five of them in my KBO predictions for June 30, one per series. Here’s a full list of the included games.

  • 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

LG Twins to Beat KT Wiz Suwon

The opening clash of this series was postponed, and we’ll have two encounters on Wednesday. I will only share my prediction for the early clash because we don’t know much about the second one yet.

Based on the team news for the opening game, I believe that the LG Twins should have the upper hand. Andrew Suarez is starting, and he’s been one of the best pitchers in the entire league.

Suwon’s pick is Ko Young-Pyo, who’s been solid in 2021, but nowhere near Suarez in terms of stats. LG’s bullpen is better too, so I believe that the Twins will win this clash by keeping the opposition quiet for most of the game.

And yet, both sides have been excellent recently, and you can’t underestimate KT Wiz Suwon. If their offense delivers, it could go either way.

Kiwoom Heroes to Beat Lotte Giants

The Heroes got me once again. Just when I thought that this team had found enough consistency to challenge the KBO playoff spots, the defense collapsed completely against the Giants.

Kiwoom allowed 13 runs in the previous round, and their opponents will be full of confidence in the next clash as a result.

They are also expected to start Enderson Franco, who’s been one of their better pitchers. The Heroes are sending a decent guy too, but I simply can’t trust them after the fiasco on Tuesday.

NC Dinos to Beat Kia Tigers

The NC Dinos managed to beat the Kia Tigers in all six encounters in 2021 so far. The reigning champions are much better, and they are desperately trying to start a winning run that could help them climb the KBO rankings.

They are unbeaten in five games, and their confidence is high, unlike the Tigers, who currently sit last in the standings.

The team news and the starting pitchers suggest that Kia should have a chance here, but all the momentum is with the Dinos. The champions are simply too strong offensively, so even if they start slowly, they have the means to win the game.

Doosan Bears to Beat Hanwha Eagles

I have no doubt that the Doosan Bears will win this one. They are going to use Choi Won-Joon, who’s still unbeaten this season. The pitcher won all of his seven starts and has exceptional stats.

He should easily keep the Eagles quiet, and I’m not sure his opponent Nick Kingham could do the same. The American has been decent but unspectacular in 2021.

If you consider how much stronger Doosan’s offense is, it’s clear that the Bears should have the upper hand on Wednesday. It’s been hard to trust them this season because of the inconsistent performances, but this should be one of the easier games.

Samsung Lions to Beat SSG Landers

I expected a win from the Landers in game one of the series, and they delivered. The second clash should go the other way, though, at least based on the team news.

Won Tae-In is next in Samsung’s rotation, and he has been awesome this season, winning nine games already.

On top of the advantage when it comes to the starting pitchers, the Lions have a stronger offense than the opposition. That should be enough to register a victory, and I prefer Samsung in my KBO predictions for June 30.

Before I leave you, let me clarify that there will be clashes between these two teams on Wednesday, and I’m talking about the first one.
