Randy’s Free Pick

You can make a case for either side here, and the Carolina Hurricanes are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they’re at home. However, we’re getting plus money with the Bruins, the best, and most consistent team since the start of the season. You’re not going to get the Bruins as underdogs often. I say take advantage of it while you can.
