Samsung Lions Preview

The Lions are reeling after the latest loss, but from the way the Lions record is shaping up it could be a trend the Lions need to get used to. The Samsung Lions are now sitting on a record of 2-6-1 on the year, but even with that record the Lions are only sitting in 8th place in the KBO.

Kiwoom Heroes vs Samsung Lions 4/3/24 Pick: Samsung Lions

If the Lions were a better power team we would take the Lions. However, the Lions are not a team that has a lot of pop and against the Heroes pitching the Lions will not take advantage of it. Now, the one thing that will tip this game towards the Lions and why we are taking the Lions is Son Hyeon-gi has two games thrown in on the year and both of those were in relief and he got roughed up and gave up some hits. Look for that to continue in this game here as the Lions are able to take advantage of the bullpen pitcher making a start.
