Randy’s Free Pick
The Boston Celtics obviously have the ability to blow the doors off here, but they’re also on the end of a back to back after a tough, physical game against the Bucks. Throw in travel and this is a legit letdown spot for the Celtics. The Detroit Pistons are also 9-4-1 ATS as a double-digit underdog, while the Celtics are 4-6 ATS as a double-digit favorite. Give me the points.
