Randy’s Free Pick

The Toronto Raptors aren't a team I'm thrilled to back in the big favorite role, as they're way too hit or miss and their wins usually come down to the wire. However, the Houston Rockets continue to look like a team that's in tank mode, and they lose in the underdog role by an average of 7 points. The chalk is somewhat reasonable here. It's Raptors or pass for me.
