Randy’s Free Pick
The Cleveland Cavaliers are obviously the better team and have been money against the spread all year, but this is a massive number and just the fifth time the Cavs have been double-digit favorites. The Detroit Pistons have seen 13 of their 23 covers come on the road, and they’re 8-4-1 ATS as a double-digit underdog. I’ll take the points.
