The Dallas Mavericks absolutely beat the hell out of the Charlotte Hornets when these teams met last month. The Charlotte Hornets are coming off a brutal home loss last night to the Los Angeles Clippers when they completely fell apart in the second half. Right when I finally give the Hornets some credit, they screw me over. The Dallas Mavericks are playing well at both ends of the floor right now and winning by an average of seven points in their last five games. The Mavs have also been a consistent home team all season long where they're 17-7-1 ATS. I'll eat the reasonable number with the Mavericks at home, as I'm back to fading the Hornets and their inept play.
