Randy’s Free Pick
You're never sure which Portland Trail Blazers team is going to show up night to night, and that makes them hard to trust against quality teams, especially on the road. The Denver Nuggets are dominant at home, where they win by an average of 11.1 points and shoot 52.1 percent from the field. The line is reasonable. Give me the Nuggets.
