Randy’s Free Pick
Both teams in rough form over the last week, but Chicago State is easily one of the worst teams in the country. You'd assume Coastal Carolina will turn things around at home, where it wins by an average of 17.6 points and shoots 49.9 percent from the field. Backing Chicago State isn't an option for me. I'll lay the points.
