Samsung Lions vs Hanwha Eagles 4/20/24 Pick: Samsung Lions

This is a game that will be one that is going to be a back and forth battle between a couple of middle of the pack teams. However, in this game here we are taking the Lions to win. They have a proven starter on the mound in this game here and that will make it easier for the Lions to get the win here. However, the Eagles are putting a good pitcher on the mound, but still will only last so long as he is a reliever who is converting.
