KT Wiz Suwon vs. Lotte Giants – KBO (August 24, 2021)

| August 23, 2021 10:04 am PDT

It looks like KT Wiz Suwon might run away with the top spot in the KBO regular-season standings. The team has a nice 3.5 wins lead, and another victory on Tuesday would certainly help too.

The squad was beaten by the Lotte Giants on Monday, though, so the upcoming clash won’t be a walk in the park either.

I share my thoughts on both sides in this KT Wiz Suwon vs. Lotte Giants preview after checking out some numbers. In the end, I finish with my prediction for the encounter based on all important factors.

Before I start, let me warn you that the weather has been bad in South Korea, and many KBO games have been canceled recently. This one might have the same fate.

KT Wiz Suwon Stats and Starting Pitcher

  • League Position: 1st
  • Last 5 Games: 3-2
  • Runs Scored: 456
  • Runs Conceded: 389
  • Starting Pitcher: Bae Je-Seong (6-4; 3.68 ERA)

KT Wiz Suwon briefly lost the top spot in the KBO standings when the league returned after the Olympic Games. The team managed to recover and take full advantage of LG’s struggles not only to reclaim it but also to build a decent lead.

The previous round brought a minor setback against the Giants, and I’m sure that Suwon’s players will be eager to win the next game.

The squad is expected to use Bae Je-Seong, who’s been excellent this year. The pitcher already beat the same opponent earlier this campaign with a stellar performance, and the offense of KT Wiz is always dangerous.

Lotte Giants Stats and Starting Pitcher

  • League Position: 8th
  • Last 5 Games: 3-2
  • Runs Scored: 446
  • Runs Conceded: 490
  • Starting Pitcher: Choi Yeong-hwan (1-0; 2.56 ERA)

Let me start by giving the Giants credit for their recent performances. The team had a good run before the Olympic break and managed to keep it going when the KBO returned.

The offense has been the main reason why the Giants have looked better recently, but the defense has also improved.

It’s interesting to see how Choi Yeong-hwan copes with the KBO leaders. He just regained his spot in the rotation, and I’m not sure he will be able to handle one of the best offensive teams in the league.

At the same time, he already had one good game against KT Wiz this campaign. If he can repeat his heroics, the Lotte Giants have a fighting chance.

KT Wiz Suwon vs. Lotte Giants Prediction

I believe that KT Wiz Suwon should be able to win this one because they are superior to the opposition in every aspect. They have a stronger starting pitcher, a more prolific offense, and a more reliable bullpen.

At the same time, the game could be tricky because of Lotte’s solid form. I still prefer KT Wiz in my prediction, but it’s not a sure thing by any means.
