Team Japan will be the visitor in the most well-known stadium in its own country on Wednesday. Samurai Japan made good on our play yesterday with a win over Cuba to open up its tournament.
Now the Japanese have a chance to take a stranglehold on Pool B with a win over Australia.
There is no Matsuzaka or Darvish, like we’ve been used to seeing in years past but Japan has plenty of NPB arms to draw upon for game two.
Australia didn’t win a game in Pool B back in 2013 but more and more professional talent continues to come out of the country.
The Australians carry 14 players who have been playing in America, but only one of them, Warwick Saupoid of the Detroit Tigers, has actual Major League experience.
The expectation is that Australia competes with China in this pool. That would leave this game for Japan and the pool for it and Cuba.
Too much cricket competition in Australia for baseball to truly break through.
Free Japan vs. Australia WBC Prediction:
Australia will continue to build on past performances, but there won’t be nearly as much of a jump to close the gap between it and Japan.
4* Free WBC Betting Pick: Under 9.5
Can’t touch Japan at that price. Not really interested in Australia either. So let’s try the under.
