Randy’s Free Pick

The Gardner-Webb Runnin’ Bulldogs are in a bit of a funk this week, and those things usually don’t fix themselves on the road. The Longwood Lancers are playing some of their best ball of the season, and they’re at home, where they win by an average of 21 points and shoot 52.2 percent from the field. Reasonable line. Give me the Lancers.
