Randy’s Free Pick

The Orlando Magic continue to be a sneaky team that covers numbers and is slowly finding ways to win games. The Detroit Pistons have been fade material all season long, as they entered the break losing their last 5 games by an average of 10.4 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 9.1 points. Give me the home favorite.
