Randy’s Free Pick
The Portland Trail Blazers in the favorite role is a bit strange because they continue to underachieve, and the Jazz keep playing decent to above average ball. However, if the Trail Blazers are ever going to right the ship, you'd think it would be in a spot like this at home. The Trail Blazers are the more talented team, and they do win at home by an average of 5.3 points. We're not laying much. Give me Trail Blazers.
