Randy’s Free Pick
The Golden State Warriors are still down their best player and are on the end of a back to back, but they're playing a Rockets team that's in full on tank mode. The Houston Rockets are losing their last 5 games by an average of 16 points, and they lose on the road by an average of 11.8 points. The Rockets are 10-20 ATS on the road. Give me the Warriors as a fade of the Rockets more than anything else.
