Randy’s Free Pick
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been on a tear all week, and that includes winning their last 5 games by an average of 16.4 points. The New Orleans Pelicans are still without Zion, and they've been too hit or miss to trust against some of the better teams in the league. We're only laying a bucket. Give me the Cavs and the small chalk, as they're tough to bet against in their current form.
