Randy’s Free Pick
The Golden State Warriors continue to stink up the joint on the road, and this isn't an ideal spot coming off an overtime game last night. It's hard enough to play Denver on the end of a back to back as it is. However, double-digit chalk seems a bit of a stretch, as the Warriors are still capable of finding a rhythm offensively and beating any team in the league when they're right. The Warriors have won 5 of the last 7 meetings against the Nuggets. Give me the points.
