Lotte Giants vs. Hanwha Eagles Betting Preview – KBO, Friday, September 25, 2020

| September 24, 2020 10:26 am PDT

I expected a win for the Eagles on Thursday and I wasn’t disappointed. The underdog started well and despite fading in the middle of the game, Hanhwa had a strong finish to earn a 7-4 win over the Giants. Lotte can’t afford another defeat, so I expect a different attitude on Friday.

I share my thoughts on the upcoming game in this Lotte Giants vs. Hanwha Eagles betting preview that includes the latest odds and lines, analysis of both sides, and team. I wrap it up with my prediction and a free betting pick.

Giants vs. Eagles Odds

Lotte Giants to win-175

Hanwha Eagles (+1.5)-110
Over 9.5-115
Under 9.5-115

The Lotte Giants vs. Hanwha Eagles odds of the top baseball betting sites suggest that the tables will turn on Friday and that’s not a huge surprise. Lotte has been the better side of the course of the season and is still trying to get into the KBO playoffs, while the Eagles have nothing to play for.

Lotte Giants Team News and Stats

I don’t think that the Giants expected such a strong performance by the opponent in the opening game, especially offensively. That might be a problem on Friday as well, because it’s Jun Won Seo’s turn in the rotation.

He has a 5.14 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP this season which is hardly impressive. On the positive side, he is expected to face the worst offense in the whole league.

Another advantage is that his own batters should be able to provide more than enough support, based on Hanwha’s starter.

It won’t be easy, but I expect a much better game by the Giants in the second clash on Friday.

Hanwha Eagles Team News and Stats

We haven’t seen the Eagles win three games in a row many times this year. The team has found some form towards the end of the regular season and might be tougher to beat. The offense has been a pleasant surprise by delivering rather consistently.

The problem for the next game is that the Eagles are expected to start a pitcher that has been shaky throughout the campaign. Chad Bell has lost eight of his ten games as a starter and he has a 5.96 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP.

The American might be a problem and the Eagles bullpen is not exactly reliable either. Unless the offense turns up bit time, it’s going to be hard to win again in game two of the series.

Giants vs. Eagles Prediction and Pick

I believe that the Giants should win this one, but enough to back them with my betting pick. Based on the starting pitchers of both sides and the improved Eagles’ offense, going for the over 9.5 looks like the best bet.
