Heroes vs Twins 5/14/24 Pick: LG Twins

The Twins are coming into the game here with the better offensive showing than the Heroes, but also the better overall pitching. That along is going to make it easier for the Twins to get the win in this game here, but the Twins are going to have to try hard as the Heroes have been a team that has ended up shocking the opponents. Still, we do like the Twins to secure the win in this game here as they have the better overall offensive showing and base running.
