The Doosan Bears look for a victory after losing 12 of their last 24 games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 23 of their last 41 games. In their last effort, Jung Soo-bin and Oh Jae-il combined for six hits and four RBI while Kim Min-gyu allowed zero runs and one hit in five innings of work.

The Doosan Bears have won 13 of the last 17 meetings against the SK Wyverns. Five of the last 11 meetings between the Bears and Wyverns have produced double-digit run totals.

Park Jong-hoon has a 4.81 ERA and 1.42 WHIP this season through 91.2 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in each of his last eight starts. Choi Won-joon has a 4.31 ERA and 1.39 WHIP this season through 64.2 innings, and he's allowed six runs and 14 hits in his last 11 innings. Choi Won-joon has had issues since getting more innings recently, while Park Jong-hoon has been better than his season numbers suggest, especially lately. And while you can argue the SK Wyverns have the pitching edge in this contest, it's the Doosan Bears who have won 13 of the last 17 meetings. Sometimes you just back history when one team has another teams number.

Give me the Doosan Bears and the reasonable price based on the history.
