NBA FREE PICK: Take Dallas over Charlotte. According to latest NBA Trends, the Mavericks are 6-0 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Charlotte,  4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings, favorite is 9-4-1 ATS in the last 14 meetings and road team is 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings. Bobcats are 21-43-4 ATS in their last 68 vs. NBA Southwest, 18-37-1 ATS in their last 56 home games, 16-33-2 ATS in their last 51 games playing on 0 days rest and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. Western Conference.

Despite losing to the Knicks on Friday, the Mavs have been one of the league's pleasant surprises. Their play without Dirk Nowitzki (knee) has been outstanding. They are a quicker, more explosive team led by guards O.J. Mayo (21.8ppg) and Darren Collison (14.2ppg, 7.3apg), who are new acquisitions. The other key addition to take pressure off the loss of Nowitkzi is center Chris Kaman (18ppg, 6rpg), who is an All-Star caliber player when healthy.  The Bobcats are struggling without guard Gerald Henderson (12.5ppg) as rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (9ppg, 6.5ppg) is struggling to make the adjustment from college to the NBA as a scorer. The Bobcats just don't have the weapons to compete yet.
