LG Twins vs. SK Wyverns Betting Preview – KBO, Tuesday, September 1, 2020
The LG Twins are back in contention in the KBO after a strong run August. The team has the chance to continue on the same path at the start of September against the SK Wyverns, one of the worst sides in the league.
In this Twins vs. Wyverns betting preview, I explore the latest odds and the expected starting pitchers, before wrapping up with my prediction and a free betting pick for the upcoming clash.
Twins vs. Wyverns Odds
The odds of the best baseball betting sites for the clash between the Twins and the Wyverns aren’t exactly shocking. The sportsbooks view LG as the much stronger side right now and I completely agree, as you can see below.
LG Twins Team Analysis
The LG Twins were the best team in South Korea in August after achieving a 16-8-1 record during the month. The side’s reborn offense has been instrumental over that period and it holds the key to success in the future as well.
It’s been second-best since the start of the KBO season and we saw why recently. When the Twins get going, they can beat every single opponent in the country. The team’s only 3.5 games behind the NC Dinos who sit on top of the table and if LG can keep it going, the battle for the first place will be fierce.
The team has the chance to put even more pressure on the leaders who face the second-placed Kiwoom Heroes this week. That will allow the Twins to close the gap to at least one of the squads above them.
They have picked Chan Heon Jung for the opening game on Tuesday and his stats look solid. Despite some struggles recently, the pitcher has a respectable 3.80 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP over the course of the campaign.
SK Wyverns Team Analysis
The Wyverns had some interesting games so far during the KBO season and their offense certainly can deliver a good clash. However, this is the team that has conceded the most runs in the league and that’s the reason why the side is ninth in the standings.
You just can’t allow that many runs and expect to stay in contention. I think that the issue will be on display in the opener against the Twins once again.
The Wyverns are starting Seung Geon Baek who has four losses and no wins so far which is hardly a surprise when you see his stats. With a 6.94 ERA and a 2.15 WHIP, you simply can trust him to stop the red hot offense of the Twins.
Twins vs. Wyverns Prediction and Pick
The SK Wyverns have collapsed so many times this season that another ugly defeat might be on the cards. Considering LG’s form and much better starting pitcher, I believe that the best betting pick would be to back the favorite to cover the -1.5 handicap.
LG Twins (-1.5)-130
