KIA Tigers at Doosan Bears

KBO Baseball: Friday, May 15, 2020 at 5:30 am

The Line: Doosan Bears -180 / KIA Tigers +150 -- Over/Under: 10

TV: ESPN

The KIA Tigers and Doosan Bears meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The KIA Tigers look for a victory after splitting their last eight games. The KIA Tigers are coming off a loss to the Hanwha Eagles where they produced one run and five hits, and their offense has struggled throughout the regular season. In their last effort, Yoo Min-sang and Na Ji-wan combined for two hits and one RBI while Drew Gagnon allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings of work. The KIA Tigers have scored four or less runs in seven of their last nine games. Im Ki-young gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.

The Doosan Bears just took two of three from the Lotte Giants and have won five of their last seven games overall. The Doosan Bears are averaging nine runs in their last three games and have scored no less than seven runs in four straight games. In their last game, Oh Jae-il and Chung Sang-ho combined for six hits and four RBI while Chris Flexen allowed two runs and six hits in six innings of work. The Doosan Bears have split their last 10 games overall. Yu Hui-kwan gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.

The Doosan Bears have won four straight games against the KIA Tigers and six of the last seven meetings overall. Each of the last six meetings between the Tigers and Bears have produced single-digit run totals.

The KIA Tigers have been a tough team to figure out with their constant up and down play, and they're coming off a contest where the offense didn't show up again. The Doosan Bears are coming off an impressive series against the Lotte Giants and that offensive firepower hasn't missed much over the last week. We also have the one-sided h2h history as of late with the Doosan Bears winning four straight and six of the last seven against the KIA Tigers.

Give me the Doosan Bears, and while the price isn't ideal, it's a bet that should cash based on current form.
