Kiwoom Heroes vs Doosan Bears 4/21/24 Pick: Kiwoom Heroes

The game here is going to be pretty much the same that was projected for Saturday. However, with the pitching change with the rain delay for the Heroes we really like the Heroes to bring home the win in the game here. The Heroes are putting a better starting pitcher on the mound and that makes the difference in this game here.
