Lotte is heading into the game here after still sitting in 10th place in the KBO currently. However, the Giants are sitting on a record that is sitting at 6-16 on the year overall. That could improve against the weak Wiz team here.

KT Wiz vs Lotte Giants 4/21/24 Pick: Over 9.5

In the game here we are still going to take the over in this game here. The Wiz and the Giants are putting horrible starts on the mound and combined with the dismal pitching performance of both teams it is easy to see the games score getting blown up in the first game. One thing that will not help out in pushing the over is the Giants lack of offense on the year and in this game here we still like the over as the Giants are able to get some hits against the Wiz.
