Randy’s Free Pick

I’m not thrilled to lay chalk with the Toronto Raptors against anybody, but the Pistons are a team that’s in tank mode and doesn’t win or cover numbers. The Pistons lose as underdogs by an average of 8.5 points, and they lose at home by an average of 6.1 points. Backing the Pistons isn’t an option. It’s Raptors or pass for me.
