Randy’s Free Pick

The Sacramento Kings continue to win and cover numbers, and yet they keep getting disrespected by oddsmakers with these strange lines. The New Orleans Pelicans are still without their best player, they've been on the struggle bus these last couple of weeks, and they're on the end of a back to back. The Kings are 15-9 ATS on the road. Give me the free bucket.
