Israel qualified for its first ever World Baseball Classic by knocking off the likes of Great Britain, Pakistan and Brazil, which is far from what they’ll encounter in South Korea.
Ike Davis is the team’s star, which is fun. Of the two most notable Jewish players in Major League Baseball, Ryan Braun won’t participate in the Classic and Ian Kinsler will suit up for team USA.
Israel’s ace is the 38-year-old Jason Marquis (remember him?), which is some more fun. He started two of the three games Israel had to win to get to this point and pitched very effectively.
That tells you all you need to know about who Israel beat to get to South Korea. I don’t anticipate it going well for the first-timers.
South Korea enters its third WBC but is coming off its worst performance in 2013 when it failed to advance out of Pool B. Korea finished 2-1 but lost a tiebreaker to Chinese Taipei and the Netherlands.
This is after elimination losses to Japan in the 2006 and 2009, when Korea finished with a bronze and silver medal, respectively. So are the South Koreans trending the wrong way?
You won’t recognize many names from roster.
Park Byung-ho, Lee Dae-ho, Kim Hyun-soo and Seung Hwan Oh all play in the Major Leagues. Two of them are pudgy first basemen who hit bombs and flipped bats in Korea but are too slow to do the same in The Show.
Oh is the star of that group; he posted a sub-2.00 ERA with over 100 strikeouts out of the Cardinals’ bullpen last season.
Pitcher Rhee Dae-eun is under contract with the Chiba-Lotte Marines of Nippon Professional Baseball and everyone else comes from the Korean Baseball League.
Free Israel vs. South Korea WBC Prediction:
South Korea is a machine of sorts, the third-ranked country in the world. They are fundamentally sound and should roll Israel, no matter who either side throws out there.
4* Free WBC Betting Pick: South Korea -250
South Korea is going off at -250 on some online shops, which is value.
In my experience betting these international tournaments, big chalk is not only almost always good, it’s almost always a profitable angle. So who’s up for making some money as the sun comes up?
WBC Free Score Prediction: Israel 0 – South Korea 11
