Randy’s Free Pick

You can argue the Oklahoma City Thunder are the better team, and they've been covering machines on the road dating back to last season. However, the Jazz continues to find ways to win, and they're at their best at home, where they win by an average of 3.1 points and shoot 48 percent from the field. I'd need an extra point or two to consider OKC on the road here. Give me the Jazz.
