Kia Tigers vs Samsung Lions 5/7/24 Pick: Under 9.5

While I would love to say this game is going to be a massive offensive outbreak and the teams are going to have a shootout, I do not see that happening. Both of these teams are putting some great run stopping starters on the mound in this game and that makes me really think the under is what will hit on the day. With that being the case, we are really loving the under here and that makes the difference in the game here.
