Randy’s Free Pick

The Indiana Pacers are in rough shape over the last week, and now they go on the road where it's one of the toughest places to play. The Denver Nuggets win at home by an average of 10.8 points while shooting 52 percent from the field. This isn't a spot where the Pacers are going to stop the bleeding. Massive line, but the Nuggets should walk away with a comfortable home victory.
