NC Dinos vs. Doosan Bears Betting Preview – KBO, Tuesday, September 15, 2020

| September 14, 2020 5:24 am PDT

Both the Dinos and the Bears have been inconsistent recently and need to improve or risk losing more positions in the KBO standings. NC has been leading the league for almost the entire season, but the rest have caught up and the top spot is under threat.

As for the reigning champions, they are only a win and a half away from the sixth place in the table that doesn’t even provide a place in the postseason.

I expect a dog fight in the upcoming series, starting from game one on Tuesday. I share my prediction and free betting pick for the opening clash in this NC Dinos vs. Doosan Bears betting preview. They are based on the latest odds and team news.

Dinos vs. Bears Odds

NC Dinos to win+120
Doosan Bears to win-150
NC Dinos (+1.5)-155
Doosan Bears (-1.5)+125
Over 9.5-115
Under 9.5-115

The NC Dinos vs. Doosan Bears odds of the top baseball betting sites suggest that the reigning champions are the favorites in this game. I believe that makes a lot of sense, as you can see in my analysis below.

NC Dinos Team News and Form

The last 90 days or so have been a rollercoaster for the NC Dinos. The team had a decent lead at the top of the KBO standings and that’s gone now. The Heroes have caught up and there are four more opponents that are within a touching distance.

The two defeats against the KIA Tigers at the end of last week put the Dinos in a tough spot. They have to win at least once against the Bears to stop the rot. Mike Wright is expected to get the nod on Tuesday and he’s one of NC’s better pitchers.

The guy has nine wins already as a starter, but his stats against good offensive opponents are not too impressive. The batters will have to deliver as well or the Dinos might lose the top spot.

Doosan Bears Team News and Form

The reigning champions had some excellent chances to close the gap to the first place and fight for the top seed in the KBO playoffs. Instead, they are closer to the sixth place that would see them miss out on the postseason.

They have to start playing better and the series against the Bears represents a good opportunity for a step in the right direction. I’m not surprised to see Raul Alcantara as the starting pitcher, as he has been probably the best player in this position in 2020.

The Dominican has twelve wins already and exceptional stats. I expect him to dominate the opposition in six or seven innings which should ease the pressure on Doosan’s offense.

Dinos vs. Bears Prediction and Pick

I expect a tight game that should be dominated by two of the best pitchers in the entire league. That’s why the price of -115 for under 9.5 runs looks like the best NC Dinos vs. Doosan Bears betting pick available.

Pick
  • Under 9.5
