Eagles vs Lions 5/19/24 Pick: Samsung Lions

Hanwha is not that consistent of a team on the year and it showed on our pick of the Eagles on Saturday. However, on Sunday we are backing the Lions who have played decent on the year and are putting a good starter on the mound in this game here. With that being the case, we are looking for the Lions to be able to secure the win in this game here rather easily.
