Randy’s Pick

As Ive said before, the Chicago Bulls aren't a team I'm excited to get behind due to the subpar play and the trade rumors swirling around. The Bulls look like a team that doesn't want to play together most nights. The Oklahoma City Thunder have not only won 5 straight games, but they're 11-3 ATS on the season. OKC puts money in bettors pockets. If it's not broken, don't fix it. Give me the Thunder and the chalk.
