Randy’s Free Pick

The Denver Nuggets in the underdog role is attractive, but they're not as good on the road as they are at home, and this is a tough spot. The Memphis Grizzlies are arguably the best home team in the league where they win by an average of 10.3 points and shoot 48 percent from the field. We're only laying a bucket. Give me the Grizzlies.
