While Friday's KBO slate looked to be rather light on trustworthy pitching, things didn't wind up playing out that way. Just one team scored more than six runs (though that team, the Dinos, scored 13, helped by a pair of Sung Bum Na homers), while six teams scored four or fewer. Several strong pitcher options were available, with Young Ha Lee and Mike Wright allowing zero earned runs in six innings, Ricardo Pinto allowing one in six and Won Tae Choi allowing two in seven. Saturday's schedule will be a unique one with two games (Tigers vs. Bears and Dinos vs. Eagles) taking place at 1 a.m. ET while the rest of the games take place at 4 a.m. All five games will be part of the main slate on both DraftKings and FanDuel, though DraftKings is also hosting a single-game contest for Dinos vs. Eagles as well as a late-game contest featuring just the three later matchups. Prices listed here will be for the full slate. Saturday's slate looks rather pitching-heavy, so judging by Friday's unexpected results, we'll probably see every team score in double digits.
Only the wide array of interesting alternatives will prevent Chang Mo Koo ($9,300 DraftKings, $29 FanDuel as "NC Starting P") from having sky-high ownership. He's facing an Eagles lineup that ranks last in the league with just 3.4 runs per game, 0.8 runs behind the rest of the pack. Additionally, Koo himself has a very strong case as the best pitcher in
