SK Wyverns vs. Samsung Lions Betting Preview – KBO, Saturday, September 26, 2020

| September 25, 2020 10:30 am PDT

I picked Samsung against the Bears on Friday and the Lions didn’t disappoint despite a slow start. The team is lethal right now and managed to beat several leading sides in the past several weeks. The problem is that the Lions usually struggle against teams from the bottom of the table.

That’s exactly where the Wyverns are placed right now and they just got an impressive victory over the Kiwoom Heroes, so their spirit will be high.

I go through what both sides have to offer in this SK Wyverns vs. Samsung Lions betting preview with prediction and betting pick.

SK Wyverns to win+225

The SK Wyverns vs. Samsung Lions odds I used in my betting preview are available at The sportsbook is certainly among the best choices for the KBO thanks to the competitive prices and juicy bonuses for baseball.

SK Wyverns Stats and Analysis

The Wyverns were in a free fall, losing seven games in a row before the win over the Heroes on Friday. To be fair, some of the defeats were close, but that doesn’t change much. The team simply lacks the talent to consistently perform and the ninth place in the table reflects that.

On the bright side, the Wyverns have looked competitive every now and then. They are far from doomed on Saturday if we judge by their starting pitcher. Young Woo Jo joined the rotation in September and has rewarded the coaching staff with three solid games.

He should be able to hold the Lions, but the problem is that Jo’s stamina won’t allow him to stay on the field for more than four or five innings. SK’s bullpen is not the most reliable and the offense is streaky, so he will have to be perfect to give his side a chance.

Samsung Lions Stats and Analysis

I love how the Lions have performed in the past month or so. The team put up a fight against some of the best in the KBO and often prevailed over quality opposition. Samsung’s rise is obvious and the next game is an excellent opportunity to keep the momentum.

David Buchanan is expected to get the nod in the series opener and he’s been one of the top pitchers in the KBO this season. The guy has 14 wins as a starter and a 3.62 ERA. His numbers in August and September are even better, so Samsung should be comfortable about Saturday’s clash.

Wyverns vs. Lions Prediction and Pick

I fully expect a win for the Lions over the Wyverns here and it could be comfortable. That’s why the price of -155 for the favorite to cover the -1.5 handicap looks like the best betting pick for game one on Saturday.
