Day Four of the KBO, or Korean Baseball Organization season gets underway in the wee hours of the morning on Friday. 5:30 am ET is damn early but it’s better than having no sports at all.
What did we learn from day three?
Visiting teams went 4-1 on the money line yesterday and are now 12-3 thus far this season. That goes against the 54 percent home win rate KBO teams enjoyed last season. It’s also something to keep an eye on moving forward.
Favorites went 4-1 on the money line and 10-5 for the season. The UNDER went 4-1 on Thursday. The UNDER is now 10-5 after the first two days of the season.
There was a total of forty-one runs scored on Day three, equaling and that amounts to 7.9 runs scored per contest. This is well below last season’s average of 9.1 runs scored per game.

These are the odds for the Friday, May 8 2020 slate according to Bet Now.
LG Twins (-115) vs NC Dinos (-105) Total 8.5 Runs
Friday marks the season home opener for the Dinos and they are fresh off a road sweep of the Samsung Lions. The Twins take to the road after losing their season-opening home series with the Doosan Bears. This should be a close and competitive game tonight.
The Twins pitching has let them down thus far this season and is posting a team ERA of 4.33. They plan on starting righty Jae Hak Lee, who posted a 10-4 record with a 3.75 ERA along with a 1.35 WHIP while allowing just six bombs over 129.2 innings of work last season.
The Dinos plan on countering with righty Tyler Wilson. The American national posted a 14-7 record with a 2.92 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 185 innings pitched. Wilson allowed seven bombs and missed the first series of the season as he was still getting ready after serving 14 days of quarantine.
