SK Wyverns at NC Dinos

KBO Baseball: Friday, May 15, 2020 at 5:30 am

The Line: NC Dinos -145 / SK Wyverns +115 -- Over/Under: 9.5

TV: ESPN

The SK Wyverns and NC Dinos meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The SK Wyverns need a feel good victory here to snap a brutal six-game losing streak. The SK Wyverns just allowed 26 runs in a sweep against the LG Twins and have allowed four or more runs in five of their last six games overall. In their latest effort, Jamie Romak and Jeong Eui-yoon combined for two hits and two RBI while Park Jong-hoon allowed two runs and six hits in five innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 11 of their last 12 games dating back to the preseason. Moon Seung-won gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.

The NC Dinos look to keep the ball rolling while building on a three-game winning streak and 7-1 regular season record. The NC Dinos are coming off a shutout victory over the KT Wiz Suwon and haven’t allowed more than one run in each of their last 28 innings. In their last victory, Aaron Altherr and Yang Eui-ji combined for two hits and one RBI while Koo Chang-mo allowed zero runs and four hits in eight innings of work. The NC Dinos have produced shutouts in two of their first eight games. Lee Jae-hak gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.

The SK Wyverns have won five of the last eight meetings against the NC Dions, but they’ve lost three of the last four meetings overall. Seven of the last 11 meetings between the Wyverns and Dinos have produced single-digit run totals. 

The SK Wyverns have had the bulk of the success against the NC Dinos in the last few meetings, but that's about the only reason to like them in this spot. The SK Wyverns have lost six straight games and their pitching staff just got rocked in three tries against the LG Twins. The NC Dinos are 7-1 in regular season play and their pitching staff has allowed no more than one run in each of their last 28 innings. These teams are heading in different directions.

Give me the NC Dinos and the rather cheap price.
