Why Bet on the Dallas Mavericks?
The Mavs picked up one of their two losses on the road. This is the best time to gain momentum as the visitors try to extend a three-game winning streak. However, it’s not going to be a walk in the park for head coach Jason Kidd and his team.
It’s easy to conclude that the Mavs aren’t a threat on offense. The side averages 102.4 points (25th) per game on 43.1% shooting (25th). The numbers are no good beyond the arc as well. They average 31.7% from the three-point line (27th).
But, most of the work comes from the Mavs’ defense. The team is tough to crack on this end of the court. They limit opponents to 104.7 points per game (10th) and average 53.7 rebounds per game (15th).
Luka Doncic does the heavy lifting for his team. The guard leads the Mavs in points (24.9), rebounds (8.0), and assists (6.7) per game. He gets scoring support from Jalen Brunson and Kristaps Porzingis. We expect the trio to take charge on Wednesday night.
All Mavs starting players will participate this weekend. Maxi Kleber is the only player to miss the game as he recovers from an oblique strain.
Why Bet on the Chicago Bulls?
The Bulls are the breakthrough team this season. They currently hold first place in the Central Division and second overall in the Eastern Conference. In 10 games, the team has secured huge wins against the Jazz, Celtics, and the Nets.
In their most recent outing, the Bulls dominated the Nets in a 118-95 home win. This added strength to the numbers and improved their average points per game to 108.9 (14th) on 46.2% shooting (11th). Despite not being the best shooting team from range, what makes the Bulls’ offense reliable is consistency from the field. The team averages a 51.6% effective field goal percentage (16th).
The Bulls shine on defense. They limit opponents to 101.9 points per game (fifth). The team also holds opponents to 51.3 total rebounds per game (eighth). Rim protection is another strong suit of the hosts. They average 5.4 blocks per game (13th).
Overall there’s a good balance between the offensive and defensive end of the Bulls. DeMar DeRozan is the team’s leading scorer with 26.9 points per game. Nikola Vucevic takes care of the boards with a team-high 11 rebounds per game, while Lonzo Ball tops the roster in assists and averages 4.4 assists per game.
No injuries trouble the Bulls right now. We expect to see the team firing on all cylinders come Wednesday night.

Mavs vs. Bulls Expert Betting Prediction
The Mavs and the Bulls are two of the best teams to watch since the start of the 2021-22 season. The Mavericks are on a three-game winning streak while the Bulls hold the home-court advantage and a better team overall on paper. We expect a fairly even contest here with the hosts having a slight advantage. The Bulls have the bigger momentum since dominating the Nets. Nonetheless, the Mavs still have a shot at covering the spread. Winning is not off the table as well if they don’t let the Bulls pull away early into the game.
