Lotte Giants vs. Samsung Lions

KBO Baseball: Saturday, June 27, 2020 at 4:00 am

The Line: Samsung Lions +115 / Lotte Giants -145 -- Over/Under: 9.5

TV: ESPN

The Lotte Giants and Samsung Lions meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Sajik Baseball Stadium.  

The Lotte Giants could use a feel good victory after losing five of their last seven games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced four or less runs in five of their last seven games. In the latest effort, Jeon Jun-woo and Lee Dae-ho combined for two hits and three RBI while Dan Straily allowed four runs and eight hits in 7.1 innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost seven of their last 11 games overall. Adrian Sampson gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants. 

The Samsung Lions look to keep the ball rolling after winning four of their last five games. The Samsung Lions have allowed five or less runs in eight of their last 11 games. In their latest effort, Lee Hak-ju and Koo Ja-wook combined for three hits and three RBI while Won Tae-in allowed one run and five hits in 6.2 innings of work. The Samsung Lions have won 11 of their last 17 games overall. Baek Jung-hyun gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.  

The Samsung Lions and Lotte Giants have split the last six meetings, but it’s the Lions who have won the last three meetings. Seven of the last 11 meetings between the Giants and Lions have produced single-digit run totals.

The Lotte Giants are a team that's going to bounce back eventually based on the trends of their up and down season, but they shouldn't be favorites based on their current form. The Lotte Giants have lost five of their last seven games, their offense isn't producing and they now throw out a pitcher in Sampson who has an ERA of 5.96 and the Giants have lost three of his five starts. Jung-hyun hasn't been good in his own right, but he's pitching for a Samsung Lions squad that's won four of their last five games and have quietly been one of the hotter teams in the league over the last two weeks. Jung-hyun is all a veteran pitcher who will likely figure things out. 

Give me the plus money with the team in better form.
