Randy’s Free Pick

The Oklahoma City Thunder have been road covering machines dating back to last season, so there are reasons to consider the points. The issue is the Nuggets are the hottest and most consistent team at the moment, and they’re a buzz saw at home, where they win by an average of 11.2 points and shoot 52.4 percent from the field. The line is reasonable. Give me the Nuggets.
