Randy’s Free Pick

I’m not running to the window to back the Charlotte Hornets, but this is a lot of points for a hit or miss Timberwolves side. You never know which Minnesota Timberwolves team is going to show up, they entered the break playing poorly, and they win as favorites by an average of just 2.1 points. It’s the points or pass.

Randy Chambers's Free Pick: Charlotte Hornets +8
