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

Doosan is a team that I think can be good, but they have to spread out their offensive production more, but also have better overall presence on the mound. Neither one of those things has happened so far for Doosan this year and the Landers team seems to have gotten it together lately and that will show up in this game here again as we like the SSG Landers team to secure the win at home in this game.
