Randy’s Free Pick
The Memphis Grizzlies in the underdog role is attractive, given what they're capable of when they're right. However, the Denver Nuggets are one of the best home teams in the league, where they win by an average of 11.8 points and shoot 52.6 percent from the field. The Nuggets are 22-10 ATS at home as well. There's no stepping in front of that. Give me the Nuggets and the reasonable chalk.
