KBO odds, picks, lines, predictions, schedule, best bets for May 26: This three-way parlay pays nearly 6-1


Former major-league pitcher Dan Straily tries to even his record in the Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) on Tuesday when his Lotte Giants host the Samsung Lions at 5:30 a.m. ET. Straily, who played eight years in the majors, going 44-40, has fanned 25 batters in 22 KBO innings without much to show for it. He’s just 1-2 and his team is scuffling too, having gone 4-8 following a 5-0 start. Straily and the Giants are -135 favorites (risk $135 to win $100) in the KBO odds for Tuesday versus lefty Chae-heung Choi and the Lions, who sit in second-to-last place at 6-12.

Meanwhile, the league-leading NC Dinos (14-3) are -180 favorites against the visiting Kiwoom Heroes. Kiwoom (10-8) has won seven of the last 10 meetings and could use this series to tighten the top of the standings.

Top Korean Baseball predictions for May 26

One of McClure’s top KBO picks for Tuesday: He’s backing the Samsung Lions as +105 (risk $100 to win $105) underdogs at the Lotte Giants. “Once again the Giants are favored thanks to a little name value from former MLB pitcher Dan Straily,” McClure told SportsLine. “Samsung should be favored in this game with Chae-heung Choi on the mound. Choi is 3-0 with an incredible 1.12 WHIP. Take the Lions.”

Straily turned in the first double-digit strikeout performance in the KBO this season, fanning 11, but he also has walked 10 batters in 22 innings. Choi throws in the low 90s, has a good slider and at 25 is just coming into his own.

McClure has found value on two other picks, including one home underdog with an extremely underrated pitcher. As a result, the money line in that game is way off. Be sure to see what he’s picking over at SportsLine before making any Korea baseball picks.
