Randy’s Free Pick

The Toronto Raptors continue to be hit or miss, and they're hard to get a feel for, so I'm hesitant to back them, especially on the road. The Portland Trail Blazers have a couple of nice wins lately which suggests they may be turning things around, and they're at home here where they win by an average of 5.5 points. The line is reasonable. Give me the Trail Blazers and the chalk.
