KT Wiz Suwon vs. Lotte Giants Betting Preview – KBO, Tuesday, September 22, 2020

| September 21, 2020 9:35 am PDT

KT Wiz Suwon ended last week with five victories in a row that brought the team only 3.5 wins behind the top of the KBO standings and opened a lead of the same size to the sixth place. If the side can continue performing well, it can secure a strong position for the playoffs.

The next series is against Lotte, a team that’s also desperately trying to qualify for the postseason. The Giants are currently seventh, but a strong push in the last month of the regular season could be enough.

KT Wiz Suwon Team News and Form

The last five games have been excellent for KT Wiz Suwon and the team has a realistic chance of fighting for the top spot in the KBO with less than a month left in the regular season. And yet, a poor streak could even see the side dumped from the playoffs altogether.

That’s why keeping the momentum going in the upcoming series against the Giants could be vital. KT Wiz is expected to send Min Soo Kim and he’s one of the weaker starting pitchers with a 6.06 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP, so you can’t rely on him to contain the opposition.

And yet, the Giants have the third-worst offense in the league, and Suwon’s bullpen has been very reliable. If the offense can deliver a prolific performance, the team certainly can win on Tuesday.

Lotte Giants Team News and Form

The Giants have been shaky in the past two weeks and it’s hard to predict their games. The team just lost twice against the NC Dinos, but there’s no shame in getting beaten by the best team in the country.

Lotte’s defense has been the key to success, while the offense has been too streaky this season. The team needs to step up in order to make it into the KBO playoffs, so the batters will have to deliver more runs.

They certainly will have enough opportunities against Min Soo Kim and they should receive some solid support by Dan Straily. He’s been excellent for most of the season and has a 2.78 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. The problem is that his numbers have taken a hit in August and September, so it’s hard to expect a complete shutdown.

KT Wiz vs. Giants Prediction and Pick

I’m surprised by the odds in this game and I assume the betting sites expect a strong game by Straily. He’s a solid pitcher but he hasn’t been the same lately, so I believe that it’s much closer than the lines suggest. KT Wiz can beat the Giants and I’m more than willing to take the price of +180.

Pick
  • KT Wiz Suwon to win
