Randy’s Free Pick

This is a lot of points for a Jazz team that doesn't often blow teams out, but this line is more of an indication of how bad the Hornets are. Not only are the Charlotte Hornets still banged up, but they're losing comfortably most nights, which includes losing by an average of 7.7 points in the underdog role. Better options out there for Monday's NBA card, but it's Jazz or pass for me here.
