Kiwoom Heroes vs Hanwha Eagles 5/12/24 Pick: Kiwoom Heroes

Hanwha is putting an untested starter on the mound in this game as a rookie. That will most likely mean that the starter will not go as deep in the game as a starter. That will make it a lot harder for the Eagles to win this game as the Hanwha bullpen is shaky at best. With that being the case we are going to take the Kiwoom Heroes to pull out the win in this game here.
