Randy’s Free Pick
The Indiana Pacers aren't playing well right now, and I doubt things improve on the end of a back to back. However, in what world are we laying big chalk with a banged up and struggling Suns team. The Suns have half their roster on the injury list, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 9.4 points while allowing 50.3 percent shooting. Give me the Pacers and the points.
