Doosan Bears at NC Dinos
KBO Baseball: Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: Doosan Bears -120 / NC Dinos -110 -- Over/Under: 9
The Doosan Bears and NC Dinos meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Doosan Bears look for a bounce back victory after splitting their last six games. The Doosan Bears are coming off a four run performance with 10 hits and have scored at least four runs in each of their last eight games overall. In their last effort, Kim Jae-ho and Choi Joo-hwan have combined for three hits and three RBI while Lee Young-ha allowed four runs and seven hits in four innings of work. The Doosan Bears are 7-5 in regular season action and have yet to lose back-to-back games.
The NC Dinos look to keep the ball rolling while building on their seven-game winning streak. The NC Dinos have allowed a combined 10 runs in their last three games and have allowed five or less runs in six straight games. In their last victory, Na Sung-bum and Yang Eui-ji combined for three hits and two RBI while Mike Wright allowed zero runs and four hits in five innings of work. The NC Dinos are a ridiculous 11-1 in the regular season.
The Doosan Bears are 8-4-1 against the NC Dinos in the last 12 meetings. Six of the last 11 meetings between the Bears and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
Again, the Doosan Bears are a team that's worth consideration whenever they take the field because of their explosive offense and the fact they're never out of a game. However, the NC Dinos have been head and shoulders the best team in the league up to this point in the regular season with a 11-1 record, and their pitching staff has been dealing night in and night out. The NC Dinos starters have been highly impressive and are key reasons for this impressive stretch. This streak will end eventually, but there's no reason to step in front of it right now.
Riding the hot hand has worked for us up to this point, so I'll continue to back the NC Dinos as long as those tickets keep cashing.
