KBO Predictions and Analysis – Thursday, October 29, 2020

| October 28, 2020 7:18 am PDT

We are days away from the end of the KBO regular season and there are still some questions to be answered. Several teams in the leading South Korea baseball league could improve their seeding for the playoffs, while others are just waiting for the campaign to end.

That creates some interesting matchups, as you can see in my KBO predictions for Thursday. I cover all fixtures and share my analysis of each, but I haven’t included any odds or betting picks here. That’s because the lines of the best baseball betting sites aren’t published at the moment I’m writing this.

And here are all games included in my KBO predictions for October 29.                                                  

  • KT Wiz Suwon vs. Hanwha Eagles
  • NC Dinos vs. Lotte Giants
  • Doosan Bears vs. KIA Tigers

KT Wiz Suwon to Beat Hanwha Eagles

For a brief moment on Wednesday, it looked like KT Wiz Suwon won’t finish second in the standings after losing versus the KIA Tigers. Fortunately for the team, the Hanwha Eagles surprised the LG Twins and left the chase open.

KT Wiz can still finish second in the standings of the KBO regular season, but the side has to win against Hanwha on Thursday. On paper, that shouldn’t be a tough task. The Eagles are last in the league and have the worst offense.

And yet, they have been better recently and Suwon will be under a lot of pressure. I still expect a win for KT Wiz here, but it will be a nervy game that could go wrong for the favorite, so be careful.

NC Dinos to Beat Lotte Giants

Both teams are pretty much done with the KBO regular season, but for different reasons. The NC Dinos are going to finish first whatever happens and they have been exceptional this year.  The team’s prolific offense and strong pitching have led to more than 80 wins so far.

The latest among them was against the Giants in the previous round and I’m not sure if we can expect anything different in the upcoming fixture. Lotte’s lack of motivation after missing the playoffs is obvious and the Dinos are expected to start Drew Rucinski, one of the top pitchers in the country.

I believe that NC’s trying to build some momentum for the playoff and I prefer to back the league leaders in my KBO predictions for Thursday.

Doosan Bears to Beat KIA Tigers

The Doosan Bears still have a chance to overcome the Kiwoom Heroes in the KBO standings and secure a better seed for the KBO postseason. The reigning champions need to beat the Tigers on Thursday for that purpose and that shouldn’t be too hard.

KIA lost any chance of progressing to the playoffs weeks ago and has looked disinterested since. The team lacks consistency in pretty much every area and the Bears have the means to punish them. I expect a commanding win by Doosan in the upcoming clash.
