Bears vs Tigers 5/14/24 Pick: Under 9.5

While I do think the Tigers are finally going to snap their losing skid, I did find a bet that I like better in this game here. That bet is going to be on the under. Both of these teams are putting a great starter on the mound and that will allow the offenses to be shut down in the game and unable to really do much run production, even though these are both offenses that are among the top in the KBO.
