Randy’s Free Pick

This is a weird game to cap because playing in a different country throws a monkey wrench into everything. With that said, The Pistons look like a team that’s in tank mode, and they don’t cover numbers despite being big underdogs every night. The Chicago Bulls are getting the best out of LaVine lately, and they’ve covered 10 of their last 15 tries. The Bulls need games like this if they’re going to make the playoffs. I’ll lay the chalk.
