Chicago Bulls vs Dallas Mavericks 1/17/2021 Betting Odds
Chicago Bulls Betting
The road has not been nice for the Chicago Bulls and after taking a win over the Portland Trail Blazers, this team lost four-straight. Their most recent game was almost theirs as they lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder by just two points, 125-127, in overtime. Zach LaVine carried the team on his shoulders with 35 points, seven rebounds, and six assists. He got help from Coby White who just did 22 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists while this team had Lauri Markkanen but he is still trying to shake off the rust shooting 5-of-14. The Bulls would really need to work on their defense if they want to get some wins.
