The Lotte Giants and NC Dinos meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Sajik Baseball Stadium.  

The Lotte Giants look for a win after winning nine of their last 15 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in 11 of their last 16 games. In the latest effort, Jung Hoon and Jeon Jun-woo combined for five hits and four RBI while Noh Kyung-eun allowed four runs and 10 hits in 4.2 innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 20 of their last 35 games overall. Jang Won-sam gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.      


The NC Dinos look for a win after winning 12 of their last 21 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 18 of their last 29 games. In their last effort, No Jin-hyuk and Na Sung-bum combined for four hits and six RBI while Lee Jae-hak allowed five runs and seven hits in 2.1 innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 18 of their last 31 games overall. Choi Sung-young gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.    

The Lotte Giants have won five of the last seven meetings against the NC Dinos. Five of the last 10 meetings between the Giants and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.

The Lotte Giants and the plus money is intriguing based on how well they've played over the last week and their recent success against the NC Dinos. The NC Dinos are also a team that's cooled off as of late and isn't exactly the blind back team they've been in weeks past. However, I'm looking at the over in this spot. Won-sam has a 8.38 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 19.1 innings, and he's allowed eight earned runs and 15 hits in his last 10.1 innings. Sung-young has a 5.21 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 38 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in five of his last seven starts. We've also seen 50 percent of the last 10 games between the Giants and Dinos produce double-digit run totals.

Give me the over 11.5 runs.
