Eagles vs Lions 5/18/24 Pick: Hanwha Eagles

Both of these teams have a lot of potential to win in this game here. However, we are taking the Eagles to pick up the win in this game. The Hanwha team has played good at times on the year and have been far from consistent. Still, the Eagles are one team that I think will pick up the win in this game here as the Eagles are putting a decent pitcher on the mound in this game here who will be able to get the win for Hanwha here.
