KBO favorites Doosan Bears try not to start 2020 season 0-2. First pitch is 5:30 am EDT on ESPN2.
Coming into the new 2020 KBO season in South Korea, the Doosan Bears, who are the defending champion, wanted to add a four title in six years to their ever-growing trophy case.
The Bears, who are the +350 favorites to repeat (SK Wyverns are second at +450), kicked off their defense with an ugly 8-2 loss to the LG Twins Tuesday, after Doosan’s bullpen imploded in the bottom of the eighth, allowing five runs to turn a 3-1 contest into a blowout.
Wednesday, the same two teams will be back at it on ESPN2, and Doosan will want to get out of town with a split.
I am going to take the Bears on the -1.5 run line, and also take them to have the lead after three innings, as well as score more than 5.5 runs.
