Randy’s Free Pick

The Denver Nuggets are getting the benefit of the doubt at home where they play their best ball and win by an average of 12 points, so I understand the line being what it is. However, I just see too much value in the Mavs and free buckets given the explosiveness in their back court. The Mavs will figure things out eventually, and that offense gives them a fighting chance against anyone. Give me the road dog.
