Randy’s Free Pick

The Evansville Aces aren’t winning games, aren’t covering numbers, and they’re at their worst on the road, where they lose by an average of 16.8 points. The Belmont Bruins cover numbers at home where they win by an average of 9.6 points, and they’re 3-1 ATS when favorites of 7 or more points. Give me Belmont in a blowout.
