Doosan Bears vs LG Twins 5/5/24 Pick: Over 9.5

With this game here the Twins are coming in with a better offense than what the Bears are able to put on the field. However, neither one of these teams is putting a good pitcher on the mound to start the game. That is going to make it very difficult for the Twins or the Bears to be able to keep the offense from the opponents in check in this game here. Which is why I am going to take the over in this game here.
