Randy’s Free Pick

The Chicago Bulls are playing some of their best ball of the season right now, and this is a game they need to win to keep gaining ground in the standings. The Detroit Pistons don’t win or cover numbers, and they lose at home by an average of 6 points. The chalk is reasonable. Give me the Bulls.
