KBO DFS – Thursday, June 11, 2020 – 2:00 AM EST
Below are this season’s updated standings, just to get an idea of which teams have a winning mentality when playing KBO DFS.
Weather & Lines
We do have PPD threats tonight – will update closer to lock.
Favorable Pitching Matchups
P Lotte Giants Jun Won Seo, DraftKings $6,100
Okay, we’ve got some GPP value here. Jun Won Seo could end up being risky chalk so be careful because fading him could be just as beneficial as playing him. Let me explain. Hanwha sucks currently. 14 game losing streak, worst BA, SLG and OBP, not to mention they’re top two in the league in strikeouts. J. Seo has potential to pitch a great game, but he’s had some poor outings recently. Honestly, in his seven starts, he’s only had one/two good games. So, the question is, do you fade an almost minimum priced chalk pitcher (expectedly) with a great matchup? Answer. I’m going to play him. His price is too low to ignore. There is an argument for fading him, but honestly, I don’t see Hanwha hitting the ball any time soon. Lotte are massive -220 favorites with an 11.0 under/over. Seo last faced Hanwha in September of this past season (twice in back to back starts) he totaled 10.0 innings (5.0 in each start) with only two earned over 10 hits. Seo also had seven total strikeouts.
Other Pitching Option
Min Ho Lee LG Twins – Love this play!
The Lotte Giants are trending up. Over their last five games, they’re 5-0 and have scored 33 total runs. Tonight they face Hanwha’s Min Jae Jang. Jang owns a 7.58 ERA and has yet to face Lotte so far this season. The last time Jang faced Lotte was on 8/16 last season where he allowed seven earned runs off seven hits over 3 ⅔ innings. He also allowed two home runs. Yes, this game was almost a year ago but it’s not like Jang is showing any promise so far this season with his 4.8 DK FPPG. Also, his last two starts have been horrific against LG and Kt Wiz. Over these two games, he allowed 12 total earned runs over just seven innings. Pitchers trending down, Lotte trending up and the under/over is at 11.0 favoring Lotte by -220! Easy choice here, four or five-man stack. Who? Good question. I like the lefties but Lotte doesn’t really have a ton of left-handed talent so we’re going to load up on simply the most talented batters. These batters include: A. Son, J. Jeon, D. Kim, Y. Oh and Dixon Machado.
