LG Twins vs. KT Wiz Suwon Betting Preview – KBO, Saturday, September 26, 2020
The LG Twins took a bad hit on their confidence on Thursday after wasting a 7-1 lead against the Dinos. They were demolished by the same opponent on the next day and the schedule is not getting much better for the weekend.
LG will have to face the improved KT Wiz in a battle for the third spot in the KBO standings. Suwon’s form makes the team a favorite here and I explain why in this LG Twins vs. KT Wiz Suwon betting preview. The post includes the latest odds, fresh team news, my prediction, and a betting pick.
Twins vs. KT Wiz Odds
The LG Twins vs. KT Wiz Suwon odds of the leading baseball betting sites are reasonable, although the line for the total is a bit of a surprise. I believe that it should’ve been closer to 10.5 or 11 runs, based on what we’ve seen recently.
LG Twins Form and Team News
The LG Twins were hoping to get back into the fight for the spot in the standings with two wins over the Dinos. The dramatic defeat in the first clash hurt them badly and I’m not sure they have managed to recover mentally.
Their performance in game two of the series on Friday was abysmal and now they have the tough task to face the flying KT Wiz. It doesn’t look good and the chaos in the rotation doesn’t make it better. Yun Sik Kim was supposed to start, but he’s out after several abysmal showings.
The Twins might have to use a reliever and their bullpen is not exactly reliable, so it’s going to be a tough game on Saturday.
KT Wiz Suwon Form and Team News
A quick look at Suwon’s last ten games shows a solid record of seven wins and only three defeats. The team has been consistent for most of August and September which was enough to catch the LG Twins. Two wins over the weekend would lead to the third spot on the table, so I expect the best from KT Wiz.
The side will likely send Je Seong Bae on the field and he has been decent this season. The pitcher has a 4.46 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP which was enough for eight wins in twelve starts. If you add the reliable offense, KT Wiz should be confident about the series opener on Saturday.
Twins vs. KT Wiz Prediction and Pick
I expect a win for Suwon, but I don’t really like the odds for the favorite. The under 12 option looks better because KT Wiz could hold the Twins for most of the game and it could be quieter than the betting sites anticipate.
