Lotte Giants vs Samsung Lions 5/3/24 Pick: Samsung Lions

The Samsung Lions are heading to this game here after playing really well on the year. Now, what else is going to help the Lions out is the fact that they are playing at home. The Samsung Lions are putting a decent starter on the mound, but he was rocked by the Giants in their last meeting. Still, I like the Lions to play better overall ball here at home and do better offensively to secure the win.
