No big introduction here. Big week here in America for MLB to get things moving, but for now, we play morning baseball over in Korea.
The week begins with some slight overcast and rain concerns in the Doosan Bears vs SK Wyverns game. Doesn't look terribly bad but worth monitoring.
Chris Flexen ($8700 - Bears) ... Besides a little rain there's really nothing to make you not want to consider Flexen at home today against the Wyverns. For starters, Flexen has a near 30% strikeout rate paired up with the Wyverns poor 21% strikeout rate themselves. He's also pitched deep in his three starts this season, so the form is good and the Wyverns form is pretty bad themselves. He's a smart chalk option today.
Tyler Wilson ($7600 - Twins) ... Wilson has been very good his two previous starts. The magic formula for me today though is facing a low powered Eagles team in a pitchers park.
Dan Straily ($7300 - Giants) ... Very cheap for the high strikeout rate he has been able to bring over to KBO.
Lotte Giants ... If I were to build 100 lineups for this slate, about 85 of them would have 3+ Giants on them. Great hitters park and they should crush LHP Chae Heung Choi who gives up lots of HR (1.61/9) and this is a favorable home run park as well.

Dinos vs Heroes ... Nice series to start the week as the #3 and #4 run producing teams this season face off in a very good hitters park with two pitchers who can give up their fair share of long balls. The Dinos are the favored team because Seung Ho Lee (Kiwoom Starter) is carrying a 1.49 WHIP over the past three seasons and has been beaten up plenty this year -- but I wouldn't be opposed to a Kiwoom Heroes mini stack against Chang Mo Koo. Koo has 32% strikeout rate and 0 HR allowed in 2020 but both numbers are gonna regress back to the mean and this is a nice spot to attack him at low ownership.
