NBA FREE PICK: Take Denver. According to latest NBA trends, the Nuggets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 vs. NBA Southwest, 9-2 ATS last 11 on the road in series, 5-1 ATS in their last 6 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game,  4-1 ATS in their last 5 Friday games,  7-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall, 10-4 ATS in their last 14 vs. Western Conference and 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games following a ATS win. Dallas is 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Northwest,  3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a ATS win and is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Friday games.

Even though Dirk Nowitzki is back in the lineup, the Dallas Mavericks are struggling entering Friday’s contest. Denver played terrific and won for the fifth time in seven games and also recorded a season high for points with a 126-114 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. Dallas let a double-digit, fourth-quarter lead slip away in an overtime loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday. The Mavericks have lost four straight and seven of eight. Nowitzki labored for 26-plus minutes in the game against Oklahoma City in his second game back from knee surgery and is trying to work himself back into shape. Point guard Ty Lawson had 17 points and a season-high 14 assists and didn’t commit a single turnover against the Lakers. Denver has also had a lot of success in Dallas, having won 8 of the 11 meetings there. Expect the Nuggets to run away from a tired Dallas team.
