Kim Ki-hoon has a 5.68 ERA and 1.58 WHIP this season through 19 innings, and he's had some rough outings whenever given more innings this season, so you can't count on him for more than two frames. William Cuevas has a 3.84 ERA and 1.19 WHIP this season through 91.1 innings, and he's allowed a combined one run and nine hits in his last 12 innings. The KT Wiz Suwon have a clear pitching edge in this matchup with a pitcher who is getting more confident by the start, and the KT Wiz Suwon are playing the better baseball while also having the h2h advantage. There's only one way for me to lean in this spot.
Give me the KT Wiz Suwon in this series opener and the RL for max value.
