The Charlotte Hornets will be on the road to take on the Dallas Mavericks. The tip-off is set for 8:30 ET from the American Airlines Center.
This game is the second night of a back-to-back for the Mavs. It will be interesting to see how they perform.
Dallas started off as a 4 point favorite and that number is now sitting at 2.5. The total has gone from 219.5 to 216.5.
The Hornets have not been great this year, but they have been solid. I certainly like their style of play.
In their last four games, they are 2-2. This team has not always been the most consistent throughout the year, but they still have a decent record of 15-13.
This is a team that has certainly changed the narrative about them. Before last season, this was a team that was frankly very bad. It seems like they are headed in the right direction now.
I do not get to watch this team that often, but being able to see Lamelo Ball hoop out there is a treat. At such a young age, he is already a helluva player.
Charlotte beat the Sacramento Kings on Friday by a score of 124-123. Winning those close games is always very important for a team. It will be much tougher for them on Monday when they have to face the Mavs on the road.
Miles Bridges was the leading scorer for them Friday with 23 points, 7 rebounds, and 8 assists. Gordon Hayward chipped in 19 points as well.
The Mavericks have been an up-and-down team this year. They certainly are not playing up to their full potential.
At the moment, Dallas has a record of 13-13, which puts them in 7th place of the Western Conference. Clearly, they are going to have to play much better if they wish to get a better seed.
Out of all the teams in the West, I did not put this squad in the group of elite teams, but I certainly put them in the category below that. Truthfully, I would have to put them in a tier below that because I really have not been impressed by what I have seen so far.
Dallas took care of the OKC Thunder on Sunday by a score of 103-84. They did just what they had to do against a team that is not very good. It will be much harder for them when they host the Hornets.
It was good to see this team pick up a win without Luka Doncic in the lineup. Of course, they will need him out there come playoff time, but the reality is, he will not play every game in the regular season.

- The Mavericks are 3-6 ATS in their last 9 games.
- The Mavericks are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games at home.
Charlotte Hornets vs. Dallas Mavericks NBA Analysis:
I am curious to see how the Mavericks play after playing on Sunday. As we all know, teams often do not play great in the second game of a back-to-back.
Dallas cannot take Charlotte lightly in this spot. The Hornets certainly present them with a lot of issues.
There is no excuse for the Hornets to play this game with no energy because they have had some days off now.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Hornets ATS
I can see this being a pretty close game. One team is not so much better than the other, so I do not feel that it will be a blowout by either side.
The Mavs have not been good ATS, especially at home, and I look for that trend to continue. Charlotte may not win the game, but I think they can keep it close and cover the 2.5.
