4% – Samsung Lions +1.5 (-125)

I love the KBO All-Star Break, it gives us a chance to reassess entering the second half and teams make moves which aren't fully accounted for by oddsmakers so typically a time to make money for bettors that closely follow the league. 

A team I'm bullish on in the second half Samsung, the Lions went into the break with 5 straight losses and decided to shake things up by letting David MacKinnon go and signing new import bat Ruben Cardenas who is having an outstanding season at AAA.

I just saw Cardenas play on Friday for Lehigh Valley in Scranton, PA so it will probably be a few days until he joins the team but anyone who follows AAA knows what a great season he's having and what a potentially impactful move this is.  I think this move lights a fire under the current Samsung players that anyone can be replaced and the organization expects to contend this season. 

On the flipside I do like this NC team but the Dinos suffer a big blow with Ah-Seop Son heading to the IL for what could be the rest of the season.  Son has a knee injury which will keep him out for the foreseeable future, he's the team captain and the heart and soul of this NC team so I don't think his loss is being fully accounted for here.  

NC also has real issues in the bullpen so even if the Son/MacKinnon abscence cancel out from an offensive perspective I think Samsung has an edge at the end of this game.  Denyi Reyes has been just as good as Daniel Castano so I think we are getting some nice value with a run cushion with Samsung here.

Play on Samsung Lions +1.5 (-125) for 4% (or 4 units)
