Randy’s Free Pick
The Sacramento State Hornets are a bad team that's not getting any better, and they lose on the road by an average of 5.5 points. The Montana Grizzlies win at home by an average of 7.3 points. Decent sized line, but Sacramento State is heading in the wrong direction. It's Montana and the chalk or pass for me.
