The Lotte Giants look for a win after winning 11 of their last 18 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in 13 of their last 19 games. In the latest effort, Jeon Jun-woo and Lee Dae-ho combined for three hits and five RBI while Seo Jun-won allowed zero runs and six hits in six innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 21 of their last 38 games overall. Jang Won-sam gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 19 of their last 30 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 14 of their last 32 games. In their last effort, Choi Ji-hoon and Chae Tae-in combined for five hits while Ricardo Pinto allowed eight runs and 13 hits in 3.1 innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 31 of their last 45 games overall. Park Jong-hoon gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The SK Wyverns and Lotte Giants have split their last 10 meetings down the middle. Four of the last seven meetings between the Giants and Wyverns have produced double-digit run totals.
The Lotte Giants should be the pick here based on what they've done over the last two weeks. The SK Wyverns are also a team we've blindly faded most of the season and it's paid off up to this point. With that said, this pitching matchup is absolutely brutal and leads me toward the over. Park Jong-hoon has a 4.96 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 81.2 innings this season, and he has a serious walk issue. Jang Won-sam has a 7.59 ERA and 1.64 WHIP in 21.1 innings this season, and he has six walks to go with seven strikeouts. Just terrible numbers across the board. I want nothing to do with either of these pitchers and I usually get involved with the total when that's the case.
Give me the over 10 runs.
