Randy’s Free Pick

The Chicago Bulls continue to be hit or miss, but there are no excuses here. If the Bulls are supposed to be a playoff threat and make some noise, this is a game they should win. The Magic are on the end of a back to back, and they lose in the underdog role by an average of 2.7 points. I’ll lay the bucket with the Bulls, given the rest advantage.
