KBO DFS – Thursday, June 18, 2020 – 5:30 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 & Spreads
All Southern cities are at risk of rain, monitor closer to lock.
NC Dinos @ Kia Tigers – PPD threat
LG Twins @ Hanwha Eagles – PPD threat
Favorable Pitching Matchups
SP KT Wiz Odrisamer Despaigne, DraftKings $8,600
Tonight’s pitching selection is almost a process of elimination, which leads me to believe he will be very popular. Odrisamer Despaigne is facing the SK Wyverns. The Wyverns own the league’s second-worst team batting average at .237, only .003 points better than the league’s worst Hanwha Eagles (.234 team BA). The weather should be fine, and he has yet to face SK this season. Despaigne owns a 4.60 ERA and has pitched poorly over his last three (prior to that, he was stellar though). These two facts could have Despaigne going lower owned than he deserves to be, but realistically, this is the perfect bounce-back spot. The KT Wiz are favored by -160 with a league-low under/over for tonight at 9.0 – Despaigne is my top GPP and cash play of the night.
Other Pitching Play(s)
Obviously, if LG @ Hanwha plays, you’ll want to pair Tyler Wilson with your LG stack – Hanwha sucks. League low in: team BA, hits, home runs, RBI, OBP and SLG. Doesn’t get much more targetable than that.
First things first, this is the stack! I love LG tonight. LG faces Hanwha starter, Shi Hwan Jang. Jang owns a 7.61 ERA on the season and had a horrible last outing against the NC Dinos, but honestly, it’s not even about Jang. Jang actually has pitched well this season. The key here is LG are currently on a three-game winning streak and are racking up a ton of runs and hits. Over their last three games, LG have totaled 26 runs off 42 hits! 42 hits over three games! Need I say more? LG is on fire, and Jang will not be the one to stop them. I just keep thinking 26 runs off 42 hits over three games. That’s unreal.
Mix and match different stacks with LG. Hedges are viable, but I really don’t see many scenarios where LG doesn’t kill it tonight. The LG Twins are – 335 favorites with a 10 under/over. Five-man stack. Lock it in.
Lotte Giants (Dome game) – Lotte is a great stack tonight as well. They have been hitting the ball well and face an average pitcher in Seung Ho Lee. Lee has a 6.09 ERA and has yet to face Lotte this season.
