NC Dinos vs. Doosan Bears – KBO Finals, Friday, November 20, 2020
The first two games of the KBO Finals were both thrilling and the series is currently tied after the Doosan Bears won on Wednesday. The NC Dinos will be looking to restore their lead in the third clash on their own pitch.
I share my thoughts on both sides and their chances to win in this NC Dinos vs. Doosan Bears betting preview. The post includes the latest odds and lines, info about the starting pitchers, my prediction, and a free betting pick for Friday’s clash.

NC Dinos Analysis
I expected more from NC’s offense in game two of the series. The Dinos were quiet for most of the clash and only showed their teeth in the last inning. It wasn’t enough to force a tie or win, so they need to show up earlier in the next games if they want to win the KBO title.
The good news for the team is that the second encounter was close even if the Dinos weren’t at their best. If they improve even slightly in the upcoming games, they have a strong chance of winning them.
The series continues on Friday and NC will send Mike Wright out there. The pitcher’s record has been questionable this year, but he finished the regular season on a high.
The problem is that he was crushed by the Bears last time the teams met and I’m not sure he can be trusted in the KBO Finals.
Doosan Bears Analysis
The Doosan Bears responded well to the opening defeat against the Dinos, but they should be more careful next time. The opponent had a strong push in the last inning and the reigning champions barely held on to their lead.
The Bears will have to rely on Choi Won-joon and I have my doubts about his form. The last time the pitcher lasted for more than five innings was way back in September and he has been shaky in the past two months.
The offense will have to support him or the Bears will likely suffer a defeat.
Dinos vs. Bears Betting Pick
It’s hard to predict the winner of this game when both sides are sending pitchers that can’t be trusted. I believe we might see the first wild shootout in the playoffs, so my final Dinos vs. Bears pick would be to go for the over 9 runs market.
