KT Wiz vs Doosan Bears 5/12/24 Pick: Doosan Bears

This is another game that we think favors the Bears. The Doosan club is not overly strong on the year, but are comparable to the Wiz in how the offense and the pitching is doing. However, in this game here we are thinking the better pitching from the Bears will be what makes the difference. That makes it easier for the Bears to secure the win in this game here and bring home a strong and impressive win.
