KBO odds, picks, lines, top predictions, schedule, best bets for May 23: This three-way parlay pays over 4-1
The NC Dinos enter Saturday with the best record in the Korea Baseball Organization at 12-3 and hold a two-game lead over the LG Twins, who are at 10-5. However, the Dinos have now lost two of their last three games and they're set to take on Hanwha Eagles starter Min Woo Kim on Saturday, who has given up just one run in 14 innings over his last two starts. But the Dinos are still -220 favorites with the Eagles at +180 in the latest KBO odds.
Meanwhile, the Doosan Bears will look to continue their incredible offensive production on Saturday against the Samsung Lions. Doosan has put up 12 runs in each of its last two games and are the -190 favorites with Samsung at +155 according to baseball odds from William Hill. Before making any Saturday KBO picks, be sure to check out the KBO predictions and best bets from SportsLine data engineer Mike McClure.

Top Korean Baseball predictions for May 23
One of McClure's top KBO picks for Friday: He's backing the Kiwoom Heroes (-180) to beat the Lotte Giants on the road.
"Kiwoom offers nice value after losing a tough one last night," McClure told SportsLine. "I make the Heroes -205 favorites and you can get the Heroes at -180 currently on William Hill. Eric Jokisch is one of the best pitchers in KBO. He shouldn't have much trouble with this Giants lineup that projects as one of the worst in the league."
Confidently lay the price with Kiwoom and look for a big win.

McClure has found value on two other picks, including a money line he says is way off because of a pitching mismatch. Be sure to see what he's picking over at SportsLine before making any Korea baseball picks.
