Weather & Lines

Favorable Pitching Matchups
P NC Dinos Jae Hak Lee – $8,900 DraftKings
Jae Hak Lee faces the Hanwha Eagles. Hanwha are back on a four-game losing streak and are neck and neck with the SK Wyverns for the worst offensive team in the KBO. Jae Hak Lee last faced Hanwha on June 7th where he lasted 7.0 innings, only allowing one earned run off of only two hits. In this outing, he totaled 20 DK points with the win, and I expect him to do the same tonight. At a price of $8,900 on DraftKings, I’ll take a 20-point effort any day. The NC Dinos are favored by -295 with a 9.5 under/over.
P Kiwoom Heroes Young Gun Jo – $6,000 DraftKings
The SK Wyverns have not been hitting the ball well as of late. Currently on a four-game losing streak, the Wyverns own the second-lowest team BA at .238 over 1,478 total at-bats. As I’ve mentioned, having the balls to pick a no-name RP/SP in the KBO can pay off. That’s who Kiwoom is putting on the mound tonight. A total punt for DFS purposes, BUT it’s a punt against a bad team. It’s happened so many times this year, specifically against Hanwha, but honestly, SK is almost down to Hanwha’s level at the moment.
Kiwoom’s pitcher tonight, Young Gun Jo, is a $6,000 GPP play if you want to get risky. He has had one solid game this season where he lasted 5.0 innings and totaled 11.1 DK points against the Hanwha Eagles. If he’s pitching well, Kiwoom will ride him until he fucks up, but against an SK team that has totaled only 13 runs over their four-game losing streak and in their last game only scored one run with six team strikeouts against a sub-par starter in, Han Hyun – Hee who has a 4.47 ERA on the year. Kiwoom are favored by -155 with a 10.0 under/over.
Other Pitching Option(s)
Ki Young Im $7,600 DraftKings – Another great play, if you’re not taking the GPP shot on Kiwoom’s Young Gun Jo, then Ki Young Im is your play! Kia is favored by -141 with a slate low 9.0 under/over.
The LG Twins are on a tear. Getting a loss out of the way last night, look for them to come back tonight with vengeance against opposing pitcher, Jong Ji Park. Park had his season debut this past Sunday and pitched alright against the Hanwha Eagles, so they’ll give him another shot today. The problem is the LG Twins aren’t the Hanwha Eagles. Park should get rocked early and often against an elite LG team, not to mention the abundance of left-handed talent LG has on offense. The Twins are favored by -180 with a slate high 10.5 under/over. Invest in the lefties: C. Lee, H. Kim, R. Ramos, and Y. Park.
Secondary Stack: Doosan Bears
