KBO Pre-season Baseball: Saturday, April 25, 2020 at 5:00 am
The Line: KT Wiz Suwon +130 / Doosan Bears -150 -- Over/Under: 9
The Doosan Bears and KT Wiz Suwon meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO preseason baseball action.
The Doosan Bears have split their first two preseason games and are coming off a 5-0 shutout victory over the Kiwoom Heroes. The Doosan Bears are outscoring tams 7-5 in the first two preseason games up to this point. In their latest effort, Park Kun-woo and Kim Jae-hwan combined for three hits and two RBI while Yu Hui-kwan have the Bears five shutout innings with five strikeouts and two hits allowed. The Doosan Bears have won 10 of their last 11 games overall dating back to the end of last year, and their most recent showing will only give them more confidence after quieting the bats and not allowing a single run in their last 12 innings.
The KT Wiz Suwon are 2-0 in preseason action after beating the LG Twins 10-3, and they’ve outscored their opponents 14-5 overall. The KT Wiz Suwon have won seven of their last nine games overall. In their most recent effort, Oh Tae-gon and Jo Yong-ho combined for three hits and seven RBI while Bae Je-seong pitched four innings, allowing five hits and striking out two. The KT Wiz Suwon have scored no less than four runs in five of their last six games and have been the most impressive team offensively through two preseason games.
The Doosan Bears have won three of the last four meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon, but these clubs haven’t played one another since August of last year. Seven of the last nine meetings between these teams have produced nine or more runs and the last two games are averaging 11.5 runs.
The Doosan Bears have had the upper hand in past meetings and are probably the more balanced team once again and they're not used to losing games. However, we’re getting plus money with a red hot offense in the KT Wiz Suwon. The KT Wiz Suwon are averaging seven runs in their first two preseason games and just put up a 10 spot in their last outing. Those bats stay hot and we have a like dog in this matchup.
Give me the underdog in this contest.
