Randy’s Free Pick
The New Orleans Pelicans are still without their best player, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 10.8 points. The Dallas Mavericks play their best ball at home, where they win by an average of 4.7 points and Luka continues to play at an alien type level. The Mavs are simply playing the better ball right now, they're at home, and the chalk is reasonable. Give me the Mavericks.
