Doosan Bears vs SSG Landers 4/2/24 Pick: SSG Landers

While I really like the over in this game with both of these teams having a lot of pop in their bat I really like the SSG Landers team in the game. The Landers team is putting the better starter on the mound, but also have shown to be able to battle back and have managed to play the small ball game better. Still, its a loose pick for the Landers team, but if you are looking for another pick the over 8.5 would be a good pick as well.
