Dallas Mavericks Betting

After losing their first two matches of the season, the Dallas Mavericks are slowly getting to their winning groove taking victories in two of their next three matches. They now have a 2-3 record heading into this matchup against the Chicago Bulls and will aim to even up their win-loss record. They had a convincing win over the NBA Eastern Conference champions Miami Heat who played with a healthy Jimmy Butler. Luka Doncic is looking like the MVP contender that he was expected to be with 27 points, 14 rebounds, and seven assists. This team is still waiting for Kristaps Porzingis but for now, Doncic has to carry this team on his shoulders.

Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls was able to pick up back-to-back wins over the Washington Wizards but failed to get into a winning streak losing to the Milwaukee Bucks by 30 points, 96-126. Zach Lavine led the team with 16 points and six rebounds while Denzel Valentine chipped in 14 points from the bench. Coby White and Wendell Carter Jr. each had 24 points. This team will have four players still in quarantine and that includes Lauri Markannen and Tomas Satoransky. Until then, the young Bulls still have a lot of holes to fill in. Rookie Patrick Williams has been blending with the team but nothing spectacular.
