Hanwha Eagles vs Lotte Giants 5/9/24 Pick: Lotte Giants

I expect the Giants to continue to play strong in this game here. The Giants have won 4 straight games and have looked better each time in the games. Now, the Lotte club is putting a decent starter on the mound, but also the offense for the Giants has seemingly come to life lately and that will make the difference for Lotte in the game here as the Giants secure the win.
