NC Dinos vs. Samsung Lions Betting Preview With Pick – May 6, South Korean KBO League
One of the games that went a bit under the radar in the first round of the South Korean KBO League was the NC Dinos win over the Samsung Lions. Neither team is expected to challenge the big guns this season, and their performance didn’t change that perception.
Still, it was a somewhat solid start for winners, and there’s a second game against the same opponent on Wednesday. That’s the subject of this NC Dinos vs. Samsung Lions betting preview I prepared for you. It features the latest odds, comparison of both sides, my prediction, and a free betting pick.

NC Dinos vs. Samsung Lions Analysis
The NC Dinos were abysmal in the preseason, losing most of their games and struggling hard to score enough runs. The same problem was evident in the opener on Tuesday, but the team made up for that by completely suffocating the opposition.
The Samsung Lions didn’t manage a single run and had only three hits during the clash. Limiting the Dinos to only four runs was hardly a consolation under such circumstances.
The team will have to find a way to score more on Wednesday, and that should be possible based on the preparations for the season. The Lions didn’t struggle with their batting for most of the preseason games; it was their pitchers that let them down more often.
I believe we might see a different version of the side on Wednesday, and it’ll be interesting to see how the Dinos can cope.
NC Dinos vs. Samsung Lions Prediction and Betting Pick
I expect more runs on Wednesday, but the line of 9 is too high, in my opinion. I’m more than willing to take the price of -115 for both sides to stay underneath it.
That’s not the only game from the South Korean baseball league on Wednesday. There are four other encounters, and I cover the one between the Doosan Bears and the LG Twins with a similar betting preview.
