Randy’s Free Pick

I don’t want to back the Detroit Pistons as much as the next guy, but the Nets are undermanned, and they’re on the end of a back to back. Also, the Nets win in the favorite role by an average of 4.3 points, so it feels like we’re stealing an extra bucket or two. The Nets are 6-10-1 ATS when favorites of 5 or more points. Give me the Pistons and the points.
