Doosan Bears vs. Samsung Lions
KBO Baseball: Thursday, June 18, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: Samsung Lions +155 / Doosan Bears -185 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Doosan Bears and Samsung Lions meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Doosan Bears could use a feel good victory after losing four of their last five games. The Doosan Bears have produced a combined six runs and 14 hits in their last two games. In their last effort, Kim Jae-ho and Choi Joo-hwan combined for three hits and two RBI while Chris Flexen allowed three runs and three hits in four innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 11 of their last 20 games overall. Yu Hui-kwan gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Samsung Lions look to keep the ball rolling after winning six of their last seven games. The Samsung Lions have outscored opponents by a combined score of 22-6 in their last three games. In their latest effort, Lee Won-seok and Kim Eung-min combined for two hits and three RBI while Kim Dae-woo allowed two runs and five hits in six innings of work. The Samsung Lions have won 13 of their last 19 games overall. Heo Yoon-dong gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The Doosan Bears have won eight of their last 11 meetings against the Samsung Lions, but they’ve been on the losing side in the last three contests. Four of the last six meetings between the Lions and Bears produced double-digit run totals.
Even with two losses here, the Doosan Bears have had the upper hand over the Samsung Lions long term and we know what this team is capable of when the bats come to life. However, the Samsung Lions are playing better baseball over the last couple of weeks and just cashed a nice underdog ticket for us last night. The Samsung Lions have won six of their last seven games, 13 of their last 19 games and the pitching staff as a whole has mowed lineups down consistently. While sweeps are never easy to complete, we're getting the hotter team at the better price no matter how you slice it.
Give me the Samsung Lions and the more favorable price, as they go for the sweep.
