The NC Dinos and Kiwoom Heroes meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The NC Dinos look for another victory after winning seven of their last nine games but losing two of their last three games. The NC Dinos have have been held to two or less runs in two of their last three games. In their last effort, Aaron Altherr and Kwon Hee-dong combined for two hits and two RBI while Koo Chang-mo allowed two runs and two hits in seven innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 21 of their last 28 games overall. Lee Jae-hak gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a spark of consistency after splitting their last six games. The Kiwoom Heroes pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in four of their last five games. In their last effort, Kim Hye-sung and Kim Ha-seong combined for two hits and two RBI while Lee Seung-ho allowed zero runs and four hits in six innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won nine of their last 13 games overall. Han Hyun-hee gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The NC Dinos have won four of the last five meetings against the Kiwoom Heroes, but the last 10 meetings overall have been split down the middle. Five of the last nine meetings between the Heroes and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
The Kiwoom Heroes are one of the few teams that’s had recent success against the Kiwoom Heroes, which includes winning five of the last 10 meetings, so the plus money in this series is worth a look. However, the NC Dinos are a team we’ve been blindly backing all regular season and there’s no reason to back down now. The Dinos are still easily the best team in the league with 25 wins in 33 tries, and they’ve lost back-to-back games just once since May 5. Losses are going to happen here and there in baseball, but the Dinos have us well in the green to continue siding with them.
Give me the NC Dinos, and I’ll take the RL that pays out at even money.
