The NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon meet Saturday 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 14 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 14 of their last 22 games. In their last effort, Lee Myung-gi and Park Min-woo combined for two hits and two RBI while Mike Wright allowed two runs and five hits in six innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 14 of their last 24 games overall. Koo Chang-mo gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning 12 of their last 17 games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in 15 of their last 19 games. In their last effort, Mel Rojas and Bae Jeong-dae combined for four hits and three RBI while So Hyeong-jun allowed two runs and five hits in six innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 18 of their last 27 games overall. Jo Byung-wook gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The NC Dinos have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon. Nine of the last 13 meetings between the Dinos and Wiz Suwon have produced single-digit run totals, while the last two meetings have produced a combined 31 runs.
This is a lot of plus money for one of the hotter teams in the league, as oddsmakers still aren't showing much respect to KT Wiz Suwon. The NC Dinos also aren't as big of locks as they were earlier in the season, as they've had recent issues closing out games. With that said, Chang-mo has a 1.48 ERA and 0.81 WHIP in 73 innings while Byung-wook has a 4.57 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 21.2 innings. Chang-mo has allowed three earned runs and 13 hits in his last 14 innings and he has a 8-0 record on the season. If starting pitching plays a big role in your baseball handicapping, this is quite a mismatch and almost makes the pick for you.
I'll take the NC Dinos and the RL for added value.
