The SK Wyverns have dominated the Hanwha Eagles dating back to last season and have the starting pitching advantage in this contest. Saupold has a 4.67 ERA and 1.40 WHIP in 88.2 innings this season and has allowed 11 earned runs and 14 hits in his last 13 innings.

The Hanwha Eagles are also riding a seven-game losing streak and have lost 33 of their last 43 games overall.
The SK Wyverns aren't the best team in the world, but this is a game and series that favors them well. I'll lay the reasonable juice.
