Randy’s Free Pick

This is massive chalk for the Oklahoma City Thunder, but it's an indication of just how bad the Rockets are. The Houston Rockets are not only piling up the losses, but they don't cover numbers despite being underdogs nightly, and they're losing their last 5 games by an average of 15 points. It's ugly in Houston, a team in tank mode. Give me the Thunder by default.
