Kiwoom Heroes vs Hanwha Eagles 5/11/24 Pick: Kiwoom Heroes

With these teams not really being able to do much offensively we would strongly consider the under as being an option. However, one thing that we did notice is that the Heroes are putting the better starter on the mound in this game here and that can help the Heroes out quite a bit. Still, the game will be a back and forth battle as these two offenses are unable to really produce much in the game and that is what we think leads to the Heroes getting the win on the day.
