Randy’s Free Pick

The Wright State Raiders are playing their best ball of the season right now, and now they get to go home, where they win by an average of 8.8 points and shoot 51.1 percent from the field. While you can argue PFW Mastodons are the better team, and they’ve proven themselves on the road, we’re not laying much with a hot Wright State side. Give me the Raiders.
