Kiwoom Heroes vs Lotte Giants 4/30/24 Pick: Lotte Giants

The Giants I think are going to pull out a win in this game here. Playing at home the Giants are actually fairly hard to beat and that is exactly where the Giants are playing in this game here. The Heroes, though, are a horrible team when it comes to playing on the road. That is going to lead us to seeing the Heroes struggling again in this game here. Still, even with both of these teams having horrible pitching the offenses are just as bad, if not worse, and that leads us to think the under is going to hit here as well.
