KT Wiz Suwon vs. KIA Tigers Betting Preview – KBO, Saturday, August 29, 2020

| August 28, 2020 8:49 am PDT

I’m sure that KT Wiz Suwon will be extremely disappointed by the latest series against the LG Twins. The team had a chance to win in both games, especially the second when the score was 5-1 with four innings to go.

KT Wiz lost both encounters instead and will be desperate to win the upcoming clash against the Tigers. KIA’s recent record suggests that this won’t be an impossible task.

I talk more about that in my KT Wiz Suwon vs. KIA Tigers betting preview that features the latest odds, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

KT Wiz vs. Tigers Odds

KT Wiz Suwon to win-220
KIA Tigers to win+175
KT Wiz Suwon (-1.5)-135
KIA Tigers (+1.5)+105
Over 10-115
Under 10-115

As you can see from the odds, KT Wiz Suwon is expected to win this one and that’s hardly a surprise considering both sides’ form in the past couple of weeks and the starting pitchers for Saturday’s clash. The totals line is also about right, in my opinion.

KT Wiz Suwon Team Analysis

Despite the two defeats in a row, KT Wiz Suwon remains one of the hot sides in the KBO. The team has a record of six victories and four losses in the last ten games. The pitching over that period has been really solid, but the offense has struggled at times.

You could clearly see that against the LG Twins where KT Wiz lost two close encounters. On the bright side, the team is expected to face a reliever on Saturday and that should open the door to more opportunities.

On top of that, KT Wiz is starting William Cuevas who has a 3.85 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. The man has been on fire recently and should be able to contain the opponent.

KIA Tigers Analysis

The recent record of the Tigers shows only three wins and seven defeats in the last ten games. The team’s offense has been excellent over that period of time, but the inability to shut down the opposition has been a big deal.

KIA is just letting everyone score almost at will and you can’t win many games like that. We can see more of the same on Saturday because the Tigers are expected to start Ki Hoon Kim who usually serves as a reliever.

He has struggled a lot in his only two starts, giving up six runs and eleven hits on just above eight innings. That sounds bad for the Tigers and their offense will have to step up if they are going to win game one of the series.

KT Wiz vs. Tigers Prediction and Pick

I believe that all the advantages in this game are on the side of KT Wiz Suwon. The favorite should beat the Tigers comfortably and the price of -135 for KT Wiz to cover the handicap looks like the best betting pick out there.
