KT Wiz vs Kia Tigers 4/30/24 Pick: Under 9.5

While this game does have the potential to be an offensive game, definitely with the horrible pitching from KT, we think that Wes Benjamin is going to hit his average of 6 innings pitched before the bullpen gets involved for the Wiz. That is going to make it easier for the offense from the Tigers to be held in check, but for the Wiz to be held in check by Yoon. Look for this game here to hit the under, but the Tigers with their home field advantage pull out the win.
