Kiwoom Heroes vs Lotte Giants 5/2/24 Pick: Kiwoom Heroes

The Giants are not that good of a team and I do not see the Giants scoring a lot of runs in this game here as Kim has been a blowout pitcher on the year. Look for the Heroes offense to come in playing good on the day, but are able to keep the Giants offense completely in check in this game here.
