KIA Tigers vs. SK Wyverns Pick – KBO, August 27, 2020

| August 26, 2020 9:19 am PDT

The KBO continues on Thursday with the start of five new series. One of them will feature the struggling SK Wyverns and the KIA Tigers. Both sides are out of the playoff spots right now, but the Tigers actually have a shot at getting there by the end of the regular season.

Winnings against opponents like SK is a must in that situation, but we’ve seen plenty of surprises recently. I share my prediction for the upcoming game in this KIA Tigers vs. SK Wyverns betting preview that also features the latest odds and a free betting pick.

KIA Tigers Analysis

I’ve been impressed by KIA’s offense in the latest series against the Doosan Bears. The Tigers scored a total of 15 runs against reigning champions which helped them stay close in game one and even win the second clash.

That should boost the team’s confidence and provide enough belief that a spot in the playoffs is a realistic target. The Tigers are only two and a half wins behind the fifth place in the KBO standings and they now face one of the worst teams in the country.

KIA is expected to send Ki Young Im as the starting pitcher and it’s hard to predict what to expect from him. He’s had good and bad games this season, so the 6-6 record makes a lot of sense. With a 4.46 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP, you could say that he’s somewhat decent but unspectacular.

SK Wyverns Analysis

The SK Wyverns are one of the weird teams in the KBO. They have been able to pull off some upsets against better sides, but they had plenty of devastating defeats as well. If the offense clicks, the Wyverns can be a powerhouse. The problem is that it doesn’t happen too often, while the pitching has been consistently bad.

Seung Won Moon should be SK’s starting pitcher for this match and he has a 4.04 ERA and 1.25 WHIP which makes him one of the better options for the team. On the negative side, his ERA for August alone is over 6.50 and he’s been below his usual level.

Tigers vs. Wyverns Prediction and Pick

On the surface, the Wyverns should have a slight advantage when it comes to the starting pitchers of both sides, but the most recent stats suggest it’s the other way around. The impressive Tigers’ offense will enjoy this game and I expect a comfortable victory.
