KBO Predictions and Best Bets (Round 109) – Tuesday, September 8, 2020

| September 7, 2020 11:57 pm PDT

It’s time for another week of South Korea baseball action. After the traditional break on Monday, the top league in the country returns with five games on September 8. I share my thoughts on all of them in my KBO predictions for Tuesday.

In the end, you’ll also find a section with my best bets for the upcoming round. The odds I’ve used there are available at the top baseball betting sites, such as the ones below.

And here are all games covered in my KBO predictions for September 8.

  • Hanwha Eagles vs. Samsung Lions
  • KT Wiz Suwon vs. Doosan Bears
  • LG Twins vs. KIA Tigers
  • Lotte Giants vs. NC Dinos
  • Kiwoom Heroes vs. SK Wyverns

Samsung Lions to Beat Hanwha Eagles

I’m not a big fan of the Lions and I don’t like trusting them because of their inconsistent performance since the start of the KBO season. And yet, there are too many reasons to back Samsung in the opener against the Eagles.

The team won three in a row recently against strong teams like the NC Dinos and the Doosan Bears, while Hanwha has lost eight of the last ten games. On top of that, the Lions are starting the much better pitcher and their offense has been working well recently, so they should be able to comfortably beat the opponent in game one of the series.

Doosan Bears to Beat KT Wiz Suwon

I believe this one is harder to predict than it seems. KT Wiz Suwon now sits just four victories behind the KBO leaders NC Dinos after winning six in a row recently. The team’s offense has been the main factor behind most victories.

The Bears are sending one of their best starting pitchers to try and stop the opposition. They also should be able to punish Suwon’s starter who’s been very shaky in the past month or so. That’s the main reason I’m backing the Bears here, but this one could go either way.

LG Twins to Beat KIA Tigers

The LG Twins have been the strongest team in the KBO since the start of August and they are now firmly involved in the battle for the top spot in the league. They face the Tigers next and that’s a tough opponent to play right now.

KIA’s recent record shows seven wins from the last ten games that gave the team a solid boost in the pursuit of the playoffs. The problem is that the rotation was messed up a bit and the Tigers are forced to send a rather inexperienced pitcher from the start.

That could be a problem against the Twins’ potent attack and gives me enough of a reason to back LG in my KBO predictions for Tuesday.

NC Dinos to Beat Lotte Giants

The NC Dinos lost three in a row recently and their lead at the top of the KBO standings has gone down to only 1.5 wins. The team needs to bounce back soon because the chasing pack is not going away. I believe that might happen against the Giants.

Lotte is expected to start a pitcher that won’t last more than a couple of innings and the stats of NC’s starter look better too. The leaders should be able to get back to winning ways on Tuesday, but I wouldn’t count on them too much, based on what we’ve seen recently.

Kiwoom Heroes to Beat SK Wyverns

The SK Wyverns have hit a slump and are on a 9-game losing streak. They are also sending one of the worst pitchers in the KBO and the expectations for the upcoming clash are relatively low. I feel obliged to back the Heroes here, although I’m not too happy to do it.

The favorite is also expected to start a rather shaky pitcher and has lost three in a row. And yet, I still believe that Kiwoom should be able to prevail over one of the worst KBO teams.

Best KBO Bets for Tuesday, September 8

And here are my KBO betting picks for Tuesday, September 8.

  • Samsung Lions (-1.5); +110
  • LG Twins to beat the KIA Tigers; -160
