Randy’s Free Pick
The Boston Celtics have the horses to blow this game out of the water at home, but they’ve been shaky at times and have some weird results these last couple of weeks. The Celtics are 3-5 ATS as a double-digit favorite this season. The Suns are playing improved ball as of late. Lot of points. Give me the Suns.
