LG Twins vs. Samsung Lions Pick – KBO, August 26th, 2020
The opening game between the Twins and the Lions was close, but Samsung managed to prevail by 4-3. It was a strong pitching performance by both sides and the clash was decided by the finest of margins.
Considering the expected starting pitchers for game two, it won’t be surprising to see something similar on Wednesday. I go through the key stats of both of them in this LG Twins vs. Samsung Lions betting preview, before proceeding to my prediction and free betting pick for those of you who are looking to place a wager on the game.
LG Twins vs. Samsung Lions Odds
The LG Twins vs. Samsung Lions odds suggest that the LG Twins are the slight favorite in this game and that’s hardly a shocker. The team sits third in the table and is expected to send one of its best pitchers to start the game, at least on paper.
On the other hand, the same can be said about the Lions, so the clash might be close than the leading betting sites expect.
LG Twins Team Analysis
I believe that the LG Twins is one of the streakiest teams in the KBO. The side was flying for most of August and suddenly hit a slump, losing four of its last five games in the league. You never know what to expect and that makes LG hard to predict.
For the upcoming game, the team is sending Min Ho Lee from the beginning. The pitcher has a 2.97 ERA and 1.28 WHIP which looks excellent on the surface, but his August numbers are much worse.
He was abysmal in his last two starts, allowing plenty of runs and was bailed by LG’s offense. Another bad performance might be punished this time around because the Lions mean business.
Samsung Lions Team Analysis
I believe that the Lions had the potential to fight for a spot in the KBO players and they still do, in theory, but the abysmal start of the season made it an almost impossible task. The team has been inconsistent as a whole and that’s a problem too.
On the bright side, Samsung is sending David Buchanan to start on Wednesday and he has been solid so far. He has an 11-6 record, thanks to a 3.75 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. He is one of the side’s better pitchers and should create some breathing room for the offense in the upcoming clash.
Twins vs. Lions Prediction and Betting Pick
I know that LG’s offense has been excellent recently, but their starting pitcher has allowed way too many runs in August. The game should be close and I would say it’s a coin toss. That’s why the price of +135 for Samsung to win looks like the best pick available.
