Randy’s Free Pick
The Boston Celtics obviously have the ability to blow the doors off here, but they also have a handful of questionable losses recently, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 5.6 points. The Detroit Pistons are awful, but this is also a bunch of points, and they’re 8-4-1 ATS as a double-digit underdog. Give me the points.
