Lotte Giants vs LG Twins 4/16/24 Pick: LG Twins

The Giants are just not that good of a team on the year. The pitching is the worst in the KBO and the hitting is horrible as well. Those factors combined will make it easy to see the Twins, who are not the best but are markedly better than Lotte being able to pick up the win. However, with the starting from Wilkerson the game will be kept close until the bullpen takes the mound for Lotte.
