Kia Tigers vs KT Wiz 4/3/24 Pick: KIA Tigers

The Tigers dropped their last game against the Wiz in a shocker. However, we do not see this being a series the Wiz are going to win. The pitcher heading to the mound to start the game for KT has been roughed up all year and that is going to continue in this game here as the Wiz struggle on the day against the Tigers pitching from Naile who has proven to be a great strikeout pitcher.
