The KT Wiz Suwon and NC Dinos meet Thursday morning in game two South Korea KBO baseball action at the Suwon KT Wiz Park.
The KT Wiz Suwon look to stay hot after winning six of their last nine games. The KT Wiz Suwon produced a combined 32 runs and 68 hits in their last seven games. In their last effort, Mel Rojas and Bae Jeong-dae combined for four hits and three RBI while Odrisamer Despaigne allowed four runs and six hits in six innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have lost 17 of their last 29 games overall.
The NC Dinos could use a feel good victory after losing five of their last nine games, but they have won three of their last four games. The NC Dinos pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. In their last effort, Yang Eui-ji and No Jin-hyuk combined for four hits and four RBI while Drew Rucinski allowed three runs and seven hits in seven innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 25 of their last 36 games overall.
The NC Dinos have won four straight meetings against KT Wiz Suwon and seven of the last nine meetings overall. Seven of the last 10 meetings between the Wiz Suwon and Dinos have produced single-digit run totals.
It’s not easy to predict game two of a doubleheader without knowing what happened in the first game, so we’ll make this one easy and side with the team that’s made us money all season long. The NC Dinos have run into a rough patch lately, but they still have the best record in the league and are led by a pitching staff that’s allowing an average of just 4.6 runs per game. Pitching is often key in these doubleheaders where the bullpen can be asked to do a lot. The KT Wiz Suwon are also a team that may be playing well over the last week but has been a loser long term and is allowing an average of six runs per game.
I’ll side with the NC Dinos, and I’ll take the RL to increase the value of the bet.
