Kiwoom Heroes vs KT Wiz 5/3/24 Pick: KT Wiz

I think this game will be a back and forth battle here. However, the Wiz are playing at home and when playing at home the Wiz have done good on the season, but also are playing good against Kiwoom. With that being the case, I think the Wiz are going to play well enough in this game here to pick up the win on the day.
