Lotte Giants vs Kiwoom Heroes 4/12/24 Pick: Kiwoom Heroes

The Giants are not that good of a team this year and are severely lacking in the depth for their roster as well when it comes to talent. The lack of power hitting and overall offensive effort is ruining any of the good pitching the Giants have had on the year. Look for the Heroes to get the win in this game here as the Giants are going to struggle to get hits against De Jesus.
