KT Wiz vs Lotte Giants 4/20/24 Pick: Over 9.5

The Wiz and the Giants are going to have a good game here that will be a back and forth battle. However, both of these teams are putting weak starting pitchers on the mound and that is going to make it hard for them to keep the opponents offenses in check. Not to mention with decent pitchers on the mound the clubs reached 7 runs, but here the pitchers are weaker and we see the total hitting the over.
