Randy’s Free Pick

The Los Angeles Clippers are not only an inconsistent bunch, but they're coming off a marathon game on Friday and there could be potential tired legs with a quick turnaround. Also, the Denver Nuggets are possibly the best home team in the league, where they win by an average of 11.9 points and shoot 52.6 percent from the field. The Nuggets are 21-10 ATS at home as well. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Nuggets.
