The NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning eight of their last 13 games and just lost two of three against the Kiwoom Heroes. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 14 of their last 21 games. In their last effort, Lee Myung-gi and Park Min-woo combined for five hits and four RBI while Drew Rucinski allowed zero runs and five hits in seven innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 14 of their last 23 games overall. Mike Wright gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning 12 of their last 16 games and just took two of three from the Hanwha Eagles. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in 15 of their last 18 games. In their last effort, Hwang Jae-gyun and Yoo Han-joon combined for three hits and two RBI while William Cuevas allowed one run and five hits in seven innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 18 of their last 26 games overall. So Hyeong-jun gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The NC Dinos have won seven of the last nine meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon. Eight of the last 12 meetings between the Dinos and Wiz Suwon have produced single-digit run totals, while the last meeting produced a combined 25 runs.
The NC Dinos have been the best team throughout the season and deserve respect from oddsmakers just off their constant work. The NC Dinos also have the h2h advantage and have the pitching edge, while Wright has a 3.92 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 64.1 innings and Hyeong-jun has a 6.23 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 52 innings this season. The NC Dinos should be the obvious favorite in this spot. However, throw all of that out the window, as we're getting one of the hotter teams in the league at nearly two times our money. The KT Wiz Suwon have lost just four games since June 27.
I'll put some respect on the KT Wiz Suwon name and back them as a big underdog.
