You can make a case for either of these teams based on how explosive they are offensively and how competitive past meetings have been. However, the Lotte Giants are a team we've backed a ton since the preseason and they've done nothing but win. The Lotte Giants have won 11 of their last 13 games overall and they've been the most consistent offensive team this regular season. For whatever reason, we keep getting the Giants as underdogs, so the profit has been even sweeter during this run.
As I've said before, give me the Lotte Giants until this hot stretch runs cold.
