Giants vs Lions 5/14/24 Pick: Lotte Giants

This is one of those games that I think could go either way on the way it is being played. However, the one team that I do see getting the win secured in this game here is going to be the Lotte Giants. The Giants are hitting better heading into the game here, but also are putting a better starter on the mound in this game here and that makes it easier for us to see the Giants getting the win secured in this game here.
