Randy’s Free Pick
The Detroit Titans won both meetings against the Mastodons this season, and they enter this tournament playing the better ball. The PFW Mastodons just can't find a consistent groove, and they had serious issues offensively in both meetings against Detroit. PFW loses as underdogs by an average of 6.2 points. I'll lay the chalk.
