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

Ariel Jurado is not that good of a pitcher on the year and it is showing in this season. However, facing Seabold and with the Heroes power we like the Heroes to get a win in this game. The pitching from Seabold is one that gives up a ton of homers so far and that is just against KT and SSG. We look for the Heroes to take advantage of that and jump out to a lead and hang on for a wild ride to secure the win.
