Randy’s Free Pick
The Phoenix Suns are slowly getting healthy, and them being at home is going to give them some extra love from oddsmakers. However, turning down this many points with OKC is difficult given how competitive they've been and the fact they cover numbers left and right, especially on the road. OKC is 35-21-1 ATS on the year. I'm not leaving 8 point son the table. Give me the Thunder.
