Randy’s Free Pick

The Milwaukee Bucks are getting a lot of love for obvious reasons, and them blowing the doors off here at home would shock nobody. However, the Magic continues to win, cover numbers and play competitive ball. Oddsmakers may not be believers with these lines they keep throwing out, but the Magic are a top-10 team in terms of profitability this season. Give me the points.

Randy’s Pick Orlando Magic +8.5
