Lotte Giants vs Samsung Lions 5/4/24 Pick: Under 9.5

The Lions and the Giants are going to have a great game here. Now, I do think the home team will win in this game here, but the main thing that I really like is the pitchers duel in this game. Both of these starters have done really well for their team and have looked impressive on the mound, not to mention Reyes already holds a win over the Giants. Still, I think this pitching matchup will keep the score down in this game here as the total and being under is what I am picking here.
