Heroes vs Dinos Pick: NC Dinos

The Dinos are playing at home in this game and are coming off of a loss and looking like a very hungry team. With that being the case, we are going to take the Dinos to secure the win. Not so much because they are looking to bounce back from the loss, but more because the Dinos have the better overall pitching staff that can tame down the weak hitting Heroes.
