Randy’s Free Pick

The Northeastern Huskies are the better team, but that’s not saying a lot. Northeastern is still getting outscored on the season, isn’t covering numbers, and even loses at home by an average of 2.3 points. I don’t want to back the Elon Phoenix as much as the next guy, but laying points with Northeastern is crazy. Give me Elon and the free buckets.
