The KT Wiz Suwon drop to 0-2 in the regular season after being outscored in the first two games 16-6. The KT Wiz Suwon simply need to get their pitching staff in order, as they’re allowing an average of 9.6 runs in their last three games if you throw in their lat preseason contest. In their last effort, Sim Woo-jun and Kim Min-hyeok combined for one hit and two RBI while William Cuevas allowed six runs and six hits in five innings of work. It’s really simple; the KT Wiz Suwon aren’t going to win many games until their pitching staff steps up and stops allowing crooked numbers. Bae Je-seong will get the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.

The Lotte Giants are off to a strong 2-0 start and have won six straight games overall if you throw in the preseason success. The Lotte Giants have scored no less than four runs in their last six games, and they’ve put together 19 hits in their first two regular season contests. In their last effort, Son Ah-seop and Jung Hoon combined for two hits and five RBI while Seo Jun-won allowed one run and five hits in six innings of work. The Lotte Giants are probably the hottest offensive team in the league right now and a team you probably shouldn’t be eager to bet against. Park Se-woong will get the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants. 

The KT Wiz Suwon are 7-4-1 in their last 12 meetings against the Lotte Giants, and they’ve lost just four times in the last 16 meetings overall. Eight of the last 12 meetings have produced single digit run totals.

The Lotte Giants are a team we've backed a few times and have even cashed in the underdog role. Right now, there's no reason to step in front of the Lotte Giants, a team swinging red hot bats and putting up crooked numbers with consistency. It also doesn't help that the KT Wiz Suwon are in poor form and it feels like any pitcher they throw out there can get rocked. 

I'm riding the Lotte Giants until they run cold.
