Kia Tigers vs SSG Landers 4/17/24 Pick: Kia Tigers

We are taking the Tigers in this game here. Kia is putting the better starting pitcher on the mound and has a better looking overall hitting team as well. Still, the power game for the Tigers is weaker than the Landers and if the pitchers do give up the long ball on a regular basis look for the Landers club to win, but with Crowe on the mound I do not think that will happen and the Tigers win.
