Kiwoom Heroes vs KT Wiz 5/4/24 Pick: KT Wiz

The game here is one that I am going to pick the Wiz again. Yes, the KT offense is better than the Heroes which is definitely showing up. However, one thing that we also see here is the fact that Yook, the KT starter, has done really well against Kiwoom on the year so far and compared to Ha, the Kiwoom starter, is going to have a great showing in this game and that makes it easier for us to see the Wiz getting the win in this game rather easily.
