Randy’s Free Pick

The Houston Rockets are a complete mess and seem to be in tanking mode, so I can understand why the line is what it is. The Oklahoma City Thunder remain sneaky good and have the ability to beat up on even lesser teams. However, OKC isn't good or consistent enough to be laying near double-digit chalk. OKC wins by an average of just 2.7 points in the favorite role, and this is the biggest favorite it's been all season. Give me the Rockets and the points.
