The NC Dinos lost a shootout against the LG Twins to drop to 4-1 in the regular season and 5-5 in their last 10 games overall. The NC Dinos have produced a combined 29 runs in their last three games and are averaging 7.4 runs per game throughout five regular season games overall. In their last effort, Yang Eui-ji and Park Suk-min have combined for three hits and three RBI while Kim Young-gyu allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings of work. The NC Dinos don’t look like the same team that struggled to score runs and finished 1-5 in the preseason just a couple of weeks ago.

In their last effort, Sim Woo-jun and Kang Baek-ho combined for three hits and four RBI while Kim Min allowed seven runs and 10 hits in four innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon haven’t had the easiest schedule out of the gate, but they clearly have a lot of work to do if they’re going to turn things around.
The NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon have split their last eight meetings. Five of the last 10 meetings between the NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon have produced double-digit run totals.
Things change quickly in baseball, as it's an up and down sport where one good series can completely change the whole outlook of a team. So, you shouldn't fall in complete love of the form of any team, especially this early in the year. However, the NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon are heading in different directions and there seems to be only one realistic option for betting the first game of this series. The KT Wiz Suwon are getting blasted left and right, while the NC Dinos are on fire offensively.
Give me the NC Dinos.
