LG Twins Preview

the loss for LG was a disappointment, but it was one that the Twins were not expecting. What did not help was the complete lack of offensive showing from the Twins.

Heroes vs Twins 5/15/24 Pick: LG Twins

The Twins are a team that should be able to play a lot better than the Heroes in this game. Granted, that is the same story that should have happened in the game on Tuesday as well, but it did not happen. Still, I do like the Twins to get the win in this game here as the Heroes I think are unable to sustain the type of play they have done lately and remain competitive.
