KT Wiz vs Kiwoom Heroes 4/17/24 Pick: Kiwoom Heroes

KT has been far from good on the year and is starting to put relief pitchers on the mound to start games. That is never a good sign for the teams this early in the season. Still, the Wiz should put up a good game here, but I think the Heroes will end up getting the win as Ha Yeong-min is one of the best pitchers in the KBO right now and that makes it easier for Kiwoom Heroes to get the win.
