The NC Dinos have been shaky at best these last couple of weeks, but they looked good their last time out and have a serious pitching edge in this contest. Mike Wright has a 4.06 ERA and 1.36 WHIP this season through 88.2 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in seven of his last eight starts. Kim Yun-sik has a 7.36 ERA and 1.60 WHIP this season through 25.2 innings, and he's allowed nine earned runs and 10 hits in his last 9.2 innings. Kim Yun-sik has really struggled in the starting roll through three starts.
You could argue the LG Twins are playing the better baseball, but the NC Dinos usually make teams pay in spots where they have a clear edge. I'll lay the RL with the NC Dinos for max value.
