Samsung Lions vs. Doosan Bears Betting Preview – KBO, Friday, September 25, 2020

| September 24, 2020 10:06 am PDT

The opening game between the Lions and the Bears was really close. Samsung looked more dangerous for the most part but failed to take advantage and was punished at the end. The defending champions scored a single run off their only hit in the eighth inning and that was enough.

I expect a tight clash on Friday too and let’s hope we see more action this time around. I share my thoughts on both sides in this Samsung Lions vs. Doosan Bears betting preview of game two. The post features the latest odds and lines, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

Samsung Lions Analysis

The Lions have been tormenting the top teams in the division lately and the opening clash against the Bears wasn’t an exception. The team shut down the opposition almost completely, but the offense failed to deliver, and that cost Samsung dearly.

It was a close game and I believe that the Lions will be hungry for revenge on Friday. They are expected to start Chae Heung Choi, one of the strongest pitchers at their disposal. He has a 4.16 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP after thirteen starts. The numbers are even better if you only look at the past month.

Choi certainly can deliver a strong performance and if the offense turns up this time around, the Lions could very well end up on top in game two of the series against the Bears.

Doosan Bears Analysis

I’m not sure what’s wrong with the Bears, but they have been way off their best at a crucial point of the season. The team has to improve fast or the playoffs will begin without the reigning champions still in the hunt for the 2020 KBO title.

The pitchers somehow carried the game on Thursday, but you can’t rely on that too often. The offense has been abysmal lately and that’s the biggest problem of the team.

The projected starting pitcher from Friday is not the best you could hope for either. Duk Joo Ham has decent overall stats but struggled badly in his last two starts. If he fails to contain the opposition, the Bears might very well lose this one.

Lions vs. Bears Prediction and Pick

The Bears barely won game one of the series, but I don’t think they can do the same on Friday. The Lions are the better team right now, in my opinion, so getting +135 for them is just too generous to ignore.
