Randy’s Free Pick

The San Jose Sharks don’t play a lick of defense and those issues pop up even more on the road, so they’re simply fade material in these spots. The Carolina Hurricanes are one of the hotter teams in the league, and they’ve been ridiculous at home dating back to last season. There’s only one option here. Give me the Canes and the PL for max betting value.
