NBA FREE PICK: Take Utah. According to latest NBA trends, Utah is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS loss, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record, 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Monday games, home team is 25-10-1 ATS in the last 36 meetings and Favorite is 14-6 ATS in the last 20 meetings.

Dallas is starting to question themselves after losing an overtime game, 99-96 on Saturday to New Orleans. They've now lost four straight at home and have lost 10 straight overtime games. Utah is 10-4 at home this year but has struggled lately quality opponents. Dallas is not one of those quality teams. Utah will try to continue that success while bouncing back from its worst shooting performance of the season, making 35.9 percent from the field and committing 19 turnovers in a 110-91 loss at Denver on Saturday. Al Jefferson was one of the major culprits, hitting just 4 of 13 shots and finishing with 12 points. The center may be looking forward to a return home, where he averages 19.9 points compared to 14.9 on the road, but he scored only 12 on 4-of-11 shooting against Dallas in October.
