NC Dinos vs Kia Tigers 4/20/24 Pick: Under 9.5

The top two teams are squaring off again in this game here. I have to say that it is exciting seeing these top two teams slugging it out. However, in this game we are going to find this as another pitchers matchup. That actually leads us to think that the under is going to hit again. I mean when you have starting pitchers that have went deep in the games and have a 3.00 as the high ERA on the starting the under has to be the hitting note in this game.
