Doosan Bears vs Samsung Lions 4/18/24 Pick: Over 9.5

The Bears and the Lions are going to have a scoring fest in this game. Both of these teams have plenty of pop in their bats, but also can run the bases good to. Look for the Bears and the Lions to be able to run the bases good in this game here and that type of small ball without many balls sailing out of the park I think will drive this game to the over.
