Randy’s Free Pick

The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the end of a back to back and still down a few players, but this line is a bit strange to me. The Utah Jazz aren't having the best week in the world, and it was a one point game when these teams met about 3 weeks ago. The Timberwolves lose by an average of 2.5 points as an underdog. Give me the road dog. 

Randy’s Pick Minnesota Timberwolves +3.5
