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

Kiwoom and KT are a couple of teams that have not really shown up that good on the year. That is going to make it difficult to see either one of these teams being able to really take off and win in the game here. Still, we are going to take the Wiz to win this game at home as the Heroes have struggled as of late and have not really bounced back from their slump they hit earlier this season.
