In their last effort, Chae Eun-sung and Kim Min-sung combined for three hits and four RBI while Lee Min-ho allowed four runs and eight hits in six innings of work.

The LG Twins are playing head and shoulders the better baseball right now and have owned the KIA Tigers for the most part dating back to last season. Brooks has a 2.42 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 96.2 innings this season and has allowed three or less earned runs in 12 straight games. Lim Chan-gyu has a 3.57 ERA and 1.26 WHIP in 75.2 innings this season, and he's allowed just on earned run in his last 17.1 innings. The season numbers would indicate the KIA Tigers have the edge here on the mound, but the LG Twins starter has been lights out in each of his last three starts, which evens the playing field a bit.
The LG Twins and the plus money is probably the best value bet on Thursday's KBO betting card.
