Randy’s Free Pick
I get the Oakland Golden Grizzlies are at home and all that, but the bottom line is the PFW Mastodons are the better team, and we’re getting a free bucket with them here. Oakland is a team that’s been getting outscored on the season. Laying chalk with that isn’t really an option. Give me the PFW Mastodons.
