Randy’s Free Pick
The New York Knicks continue to be hard to trust with their inconsistent ways, and being on the end of a back to back here doesn't help matters. The Philadelphia 76ers have the rest advantage, and they've beaten the Knicks in 7 of the last 10 meetings, many of those games not being all that close. I'm assuming Joel Embiid is going to play, given this line. Either way, I don't have much confidence in the Knicks. Give me the 76ers and the reasonable chalk.
