CHANGWON, South Korea — South Korea’s Korean Baseball Organization (KBO) has been a welcome addition to sports betting menus around the globe.

With the league being broadcasted by ESPN, it has given American baseball fans something to watch while the MLB tries to figure out when its regular season will begin amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

The NC Dinos sit atop the KBO standings with a 17-3 record which has given them a 3-game lead over the second-place LG Twins (14-6).

NC Dinos (-1.5) vs. Samsung Lions @ 5:30 a.m. ET

The NC Dinos (17-3) are the best team in the KBO and they’re a 1.5-run favorite over the Samsung Lions (8-13) in their matchup on Friday.

The money line odds for the Dinos currently sit at -260 odds while the Lions have underdog odds of +200 in the event that they pull off the upset.

This should be a game the NC Dinos win easily and betting on the Lions to pull off the upset here should be avoided for this matchup.

LG Twins vs. KIA Tigers (-1.5) @ 5:30 a.m. ET
