Picks and Predictions for KBO Games – Saturday, May 7th, 2022

| May 6, 2022 2:49 pm PDT

The KBO odds are live for Saturday, so let’s see which teams are going to start the weekend off right. Yesterday was Game 1 of the series for each matchup and the standings are very close in the middle right now.

Every single series has something of importance. The SSG Landers are still holding on to first place in the KBO after dropping yesterday’s game to the Kiwoom Heroes. Kiwoom is now right behind Lotte for second place, so they’ll be hoping to get another big win on Saturday.

There’s a lot more where that came from, so let’s get right into the odds and make our KBO predictions for Saturday.

KBO Odds for Saturday, May 7th, 2022

  • KT Wiz (+120) vs. Doosan Bears (-155), O/U 6.5
  • Kia Tigers (-225) vs. Hanwha Eagles (+170), O/U 6.5
  • LG Twins (+110) vs. NC Dinos (-145), O/U 8.5
  • SSG Landers (-170) vs. Kiwoom Heroes (+130), O/U 6.5
  • Samsung Lions (-135) vs. Lotte Giants (+105), O/U 7.5

Here are the KBO betting odds for all of Saturday’s games.

The Doosan Bears are favored to beat the KT Wiz, despite KT getting a 6-0 win in yesterday’s game. The Wiz got off to a shaky start in 2022 after winning the Korean Series last season.

They have slowly been improving and are 6-4 in their last 10 games and are just 2.5 games out of second.

Kia demolished Hanwha yesterday 13-2, so they’re the heaviest favorite of the day. Hanwha will be looking to make sure they don’t reach 20 losses just yet.

Here’s an odd note, the NC Dinos are in last place in the KBO and are 3-7 in their last 10 games. They take on the LG Twins, who are 16-14 on the year. The Dinos are actually the ones favored to win this game, so the Twins could be in for a tougher game than they thought.

SSG lost yesterday’s game against the Heroes, but is favored to bounce back in this one. The Landers are the only KBO team without double-digit losses and have been very tough this year.

Samsung is a league-best 7-3 in their last 10 games and is on a 3-game winning streak. They will look to keep it going against the second place Lotte Giants.

KBO Predictions for Saturday’s Games

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

These are my KBO picks for Saturday’s winners. First up is the Doosan Bears over the KT Wiz.

Doosan will be sending Robert Stock to the mound, who’s been great in 2022. He has a dazzling 1.64 ERA in 38.1 innings and went for 6 innings allowing just one earned run against the Wiz his last time against them.

On the other hand, Odrisamer Despaigne has been shaky recently. He’s given up 8 earned runs in his last 11 innings pitched.

Kia will be sending Yang Hyeon-jong to the mound with a strong 1.86 ERA in 38.1 IP. He’ll be up against Park Yoon-chul, who struggled in 3.2 IP against Kia earlier this season (2 earned runs). The Tigers should have the upper hand offensively as well.

The Dinos are sending ace Drew Rucinski to the mound for Saturday, which is why they are surprisingly favored to win. He’s been untouchable in 2022 with his 0.92 ERA in 39 IP. Rucinski also pitches deep into games going at least 7 innings in 4 of his 6 starts.

Wilmer Font (2.37 ERA) will take the mound for SSG, which should give them a strong advantage over Kiwoom. An Woo-jin will oppose him, who gave up 4 ER in 6 IP against SSG on April 20th.

Samsung is on fire right now and are sending the reliable David Buchanan to the mound on Saturday. He has a 2.77 ERA in 2022 and the Lions are hitting an insane .301 as a team in their last 10 games.

Best KBO Bets to Target for 5/7/2022

LG Twins vs. NC Dinos Under 8.5-105
SSG Landers -0.5 F5-105
Samsung Lions to Win-135

Here are my 3 best KBO betting picks for Saturday’s games.

It might be odd to see NC favored to win over the Twins, but Drew Rucinski is the biggest reason for that. He’s been very good in 2022 and another strong outing should be in store. NC’s an unreliable team though. Rucinski has pitched 7 shutout innings in 4 starts this season and the Dinos only won 2 of them.

Bae Jae-june makes his 2022 for LG and has a career 4.72 ERA in the KBO. I’d give the upper hand to NC, but 8.5 runs seems way too high with Rucinski on the mound.

Although the Landers have been great in 2022 overall, they’ve struggled as of late. We only need them to be up by 1 after 5 innings, which should be very possible with Wilmer Font on the mound. Font pitched 7 innings against Kiwoom earlier this year and only allowed one earned run.

Ann Woo-jin is a solid pitcher, but he’s given up 8 runs in his last 3 starts. SSG should be able to get a couple off him and let Font do his thing on the mound.

I’m also riding the hot hand in Samsung on Saturday. They’ve been the best team in the KBO over the last 10 games and Buchanan is on the mound. The only thing Samsung has been struggling with really is pitching. Buchanan’s been steady all year, so that shouldn’t be a problem for them in this game.
