Randy’s Pick

The Minnesota Timberwolves are playing their best ball in years, and they deserve to be favored at home, where they're 7-1 SU. However, the Thunder is playing just as well with wins in 6 of their last 7 games, and they're 12-4 ATS on the season. The Thunder are cover numbers at a great rate, and they're just not a team I'm eager to step in front of right now. It should be a fun game, but I'm leaning toward OKC and the free points.

Randy’s Pick Oklahoma City Thunder +4
