Samsung Lions vs NC Dinos 5/11/24 Pick: NC Dinos

The Dinos are the stronger team in this game here, but the Dinos are also able to run the bases smarter. This is a game that we expect to be a small ball type of game where the base running is going to be what makes the difference. With that being the case we are going to take the NC Dinos based off of how they are able to run the bases better compared to the Lions.
