Randy’s Free Pick
The Sacramento Kings have been the more consistent team and probably should be favored here, but they’re not as good on the road as they are at home. Also, the Minnesota Timberwolves have played decent over the last couple of weeks, and they’re covering numbers. Two teams that have been inconsistent as all hell over the years, but are actually respectable right now. Give me the home dog.
