Randy’s Free Pick
The New York Knicks are the healthier team, and this line has dropped once Brown has been ruled out. However, the Celtics are still deep and talented, and this is a soft line you're not going to get many times moving forward. The Celtics continue to win and cover numbers, and they win in the favorite role by an average of 6.1 points. I'll lay the bucket even with Brown not playing.
