The Line: Lotte Giants -115 / Hanwha Eagles -115 -- Over/Under: 9.5

TV: ESPN

The Hanwha Eagles and Lotte Giants meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.

The Hanwha Eagles could use a win here after losing six of their last eight games. The Hanwha Eagles are coming off a game where they scored one run, and they’ve produced a combined seven runs in their last three games. In their last effort, Jung Eun-won and Lee Sung-yeol combined for four hits while Warwick Saupold allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost nine of their last 13 games overall. Kim Min-woo gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.

The Lotte Giants look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Lotte Giants are fresh off a game where they scored five runs on 11 hits and they’ve scored four or more runs in eight of their last nine games. In their last effort, Jeon Jun-woo and Lee Dae-ho combined for four hits and two RBI while Noh Kyung-eun allowed one run and eight hits in six innings of work. The Lotte Giants have won 12 of their last 16 games overall. Lee Seung-heon gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.

The Hanwha Eagles have won six of the last 12 meetings against the Lotte Giants, but have lost five of the last nine meetings. Five of the last 12 meetings have produced double-digit run totals.

Right when it looked like the Hanwha Eagles were turning things around and the Lotte Giants were cooling off, things return to normal and it's a comfortable, dominating performance from the Giants. The Hanwha Eagles are a team we've faded a ton since the start of the preseason and the Lotte Giants have been our most consistent back in the KBO, and they've now won 12 of 16 tries since the start of the preseason. There's not much to update here, as you guys should know the direction I'm leaning based on past picks.

Give me the Lotte Giants to win this game and this series.
