Randy’s Free Pick
Neither of these teams are playing good ball over the last week, but it’s fair to expect the Grizzlies to bounce back sooner. The Pacers are banged up, getting blown out left and right, and the Grizzlies win at home by an average of 11.2 points. Big line for a struggling club, but give me the Grizzlies if forced to pick.
