KIA Tigers vs. KT Wiz Suwon Betting Preview – KBO, Friday, September 25, 2020

| September 24, 2020 3:54 pm PDT

I thought KT Wiz Suwon will register another win in the opener against the Tigers, but the underdog delivered a fine performance to steal the victory. The 5-3 score actually is flattering for Suwon who looked toothless offensively and gave the opponent too many opportunities to score.

KT Wiz will have to improve in the second game or the team might take a hit in the pursuit of the second spot in the KBO standings.

I share my thoughts on both sides in this KIA Tigers vs. KT Wiz Suwon betting preview. The post includes the latest odds and lines, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

The KIA Tigers vs. KT Wiz Suwon odds clearly show that the leading betting sites have a clear favorite in mind. I can’t say that I’m too surprised by that, as you can see in my analysis of both sides.

KIA Tigers Form and Team News

The Tigers are just half a victory away from the KBO playoffs spots and that obviously makes them a dangerous opponent. The team didn’t start well on Thursday and was 3-1 down after the third inning. That’s when the pitchers stepped up big time to shut down the opponent completely.

KT Wiz didn’t find a single run by the end of the clash, while the Tigers’ offense delivered four to turn it around. It could’ve been even more, but that was enough to start the series with a victory.

I’m afraid it would be hard to repeat that on Friday, though. The main reason is the projected starting pitcher Min Woo Lee. He has a 5.84 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP so far which makes him one of the weaker options in the squad.

I don’t think he will be capable of stopping the opposition and that leaves the offense with a heavy burden.

KT Wiz Suwon Form and Team News

I expected more from KT Wiz in the opener, but the team looked lost at times. The offense had a great start but faded away and the pitchers couldn’t cover for the lack of enough runs.

We’ve seen Suwon in a similar position before and the team often bounces back immediately. I believe we can expect a victory on Friday too. It’s time for Odrisamer Despaigne to start and he has fourteen wins in the KBO already this season.

The Cuban pitcher should be able to contain KIA’s streaky offense, leaving plenty of breathing room to his own teammates.

Tigers vs. KT Wiz Prediction and Pick

I believe that KT Wiz should win game two of the series, but I don’t like the odds for the favorite. Backing the Tigers is not an option either and there is only one viable pick here. I believe that Suwon should keep the opposition quiet and the totals line of 10.5 is a bit on the high end.
