LG Twins vs Kia Tigers 4/9/24 Pick: Under 9.5

This is a game that will showcase very little offense. At least that is what I think, both of these starting pitchers have been great on the year and that will help the under show up in this game. Not to mention, when we were looking at this the pitchers are not giving up a lot of runs on the year either. That is what makes us think the Under to be hitting in this game here.
