Randy’s Free Pick
I don’t want to back the San Antonio Spurs as much as the next guy, but the Raptors aren’t consistent enough to back with massive chalk. The Raptors are too hit or miss, they’re still without Anunoby and him and Siakam are in trade rumors, which can’t be great for the mindset of this club. Lots of points. It’s Spurs or pass for me.
